What the Colour of your Front Door says About You

Many people underestimate the importance of their front door. Not only is it the entrance to your home, but studies have shown that there is a connection between personality and your house’s exterior. Whether it’s bright and bold, or subtle and sophisticated, the colour of your front door can say a lot about who you are. 

So, if you’re looking to refresh your door with a new coat of paint, here are some examples of the different meanings behind the colour of your front door: 


A red front door means that you have a very strong sense of determination and power. You also consider yourself somewhat of a risk taker, as well as being quite popular. In Scotland, it means you’ve paid off your mortgage and you’re proud to show it! 


If you prefer to have a green front door, then this means that you tend to be more reserved with those around you, often preferring time alone. However, you enjoy being in nature and creating a comfortable, harmonious home.        


If you have a lighter blue front door, then this means that you are more of an optimist than your peers. You tend to be very peaceful, easy-going and friendly. On the other side, a dark blue door shows that you value tradition and family. 


A cream or white coloured front door is a popular choice among many people due to its light, serene and welcoming nature. You will usually be seen as a happy person who enjoys socialising and making new friends.  It can also represent cleanliness and organisation. 


A yellow front door is pretty unique and for that reason it evokes feelings of happiness, warmth and optimism. You’re friendly, creative, maybe a little bit flamboyant, and welcome neighbours like sunshine on a cloudy day. 


A black front door suggests that you like the finer things in life with an elegant style to match. This colour is chosen by individuals who like to be authoritative and are quite serious as people.          


Finally, if you have a brown front door, then this suggests that you like to live a private life, but you are also very reliable, stable and compassionate. A natural wooden door implies you love to tend to your garden and create a safe haven – possibly live in a cottage or older home with plenty of land.
