If you like to play it safe, our advice is to keep things neutral! There are plenty of awesome neutral paint color choices out there for a front door, and black is an absolute classic choice. A great option for a stunning neutral black is Wrought Iron by Benjamin Moore. Pair a black front door with white trim and white or light gray exterior paint and it's a serious eye catcher, but it'll work well with almost any exterior color and trim.

If classic is your thing, another classic (but much bolder) choice for your door is red! We absolutely adore a red door against black or charcoal gray exterior, but it will also look amazing with a lighter or even white exterior. Our favorite recommendation for a gorgeous and bold red door color is Benjamin Moore's Million Dollar Red.

On the topic of adding classic color to your exterior, another awesome option is navy blue. Navy is a welcoming color and we think it's really well suited for lots of New England homes. Navy doors look exceptionally good with a white or light colored exterior paint and trim, and our recommendation (of course) for a navy door paint is Hale Navy by (you guessed it!) Benjamin Moore.
