As it has been established here for many years, I really love doors.

There’s just something about them that I’ve always found to be incredibly artful. I love the beveled design and patterning in doors. And I love that they include various materials all in one place to define them – wood, metal, glass – and yet they are more than just the sum of their parts. They may seem mundane to many. And yet they can really set the tone for what to expect once you step through them.

And the most powerful door there is for all of that is the front door. Talk about your first impressions! Further to that, there are various ways of making that first impression, particularly using color. Colors as we have learned are more than just visual elements. They have an influence on our thinking, and our emotional states too.

So, with all of that being said, here’s a graphic that outlines some of the broad strokes of color and front doors.

Take a look!
