Portland has become home to a colorful array of subtle and some not so subtle entry door colors. Whether it’s a bold accent to offset classic muted tones, or the introduction to a home filled with bold pops of color around every corner, the entry door is a guest’s first impression of what they might discover inside the house.

Traditionally one would see a red door set against a white exterior, however those days are long gone leaving a bouquet of interest sparking color combinations in its wake. Painting the entry door is an inexpensive and simple way to play with the mood of your homes exterior. If the color you had one season doesn’t fit your lifestyle in the next season, it is as simple as just painting over it with a fresh coat of paint.
