Of all the seasons, fall is known for its colors. There is just something about these colors showing up on the trees, bushes, and flowers that makes us excited. Maybe it’s ingrained in us to love fall because that means harvest season is here, or maybe it’s the fact that summer is over and it is time for the weather to cool off for the rest of the year.
Regardless of the reason, if you are one of the many that find that the colors of fall are your favorite colors of all, have you ever considered using them on your home? Using a fall color for your front door will allow you to enjoy your favorite fall color all through the year, instead of just briefly between summer and winter.
Frequently Used Fall Front Door Colors
Brown has to be the most common fall color that people use on their front door. It has been the basic color of front doors for thousands of years, and is a safe bet to match other fall colors on your windows.
Red is also a common front door color that is used. Red has been used on front doors in different countries and from one generation to the next as a sign welcoming people into homes.
Black is another fall color that works well for a front door. It is not as popular as brown and red though, as most people don’t want to go that dark on the outside of their homes.
Less Used Fall Front Door Colors
As popular as bright cheerful colors are on windows, they are less so on front doors. Yes, you still can see an orange or yellow front door every now and then. But, if they are used they are the darker shades of those colors. Very few if any homes use the brighter version of red, yellow, or orange on their front door.
Be Careful With the Color Combinations
Fall colors work well together when they are on the landscaping, but not so much when they are on your windows and doors. So if you decide that you want to use a different fall color on your windows than what you decided on for your front door, be very sure that they complement each other.
If you choose a fall color for your front door that clashes with the colors around your windows, your home could end up looking silly.
