- What door colors go with a yellow house?
If your goal is a front door that has timeless style, go with white. It has classic appeal and works with any style of home, from traditional to modern. It’s also the most popular front door color. The best front door colors for yellow house exteriors are determined in part by the undertones found in the yellow paint. If white isn’t your thing, gray goes with just about any color.
- Should front door be lighter or darker than house?
It depends on how light or dark the exterior paint color is. The general rule is the exterior door should be a different color. Whether it’s a difference in shade or a complementary color depends on the siding. If it’s neutral, go with the personality of the rest of the entrance, otherwise, choose a contrasting color. If the exterior is a light color, go with a dark shade. If it’s dark, go with something light.
