Welcome Home: What Your Front Door Colour Says About You

Your front door is the first thing visitors see as they enter your home. The colour you paint your door reflects your personality and style and also invites a particular energy into your space. It also sets the tone for your entire home, conveying subtle messages about who you are and what you value. 

Explore how your front door colour can impact the energy and appearance of your home and influence the perceptions of visitors and curious passersby alike. 


Red is bold, passionate and dramatic, yet welcoming. It creates positive energy and expresses an outgoing, friendly nature. According to the traditional practice of Feng Shui, a red door encourages prosperity and transforms negative energy.

Regal and opulent, purple doors reflect creativity, individuality and spirituality. Purple strengthens your intuition and wisdom. Paint your front door purple if you want more energy and abundance in your life – without the volatility associated with pure reds.

Also, keep in mind these important factors when choosing your front door colour:

  • The architectural style and age of your property
  • The exterior colour of your home
  • Your location (for example, colours that suit coastal properties might not work in the city)
  • The colour of the immediate interior – make sure your front door doesn’t clash with your entrance/foyer
