Large yellow modern industrial door for a contemporary or mid century modern home by Australian interior design firmNexus Design.

The door of your house is the entrance to your family, your home, and the mood you’ve chosen for design.  Painting your entire house a bright or wild color may seem a bit much, but focusing on your front door can be both fun and inspirational.

Using color and door design you can create something modern and unique.

Modernize You Front Door With Paint

Using a modern style door doesn’t limit your options or use of color.  In fact, it can give you an even more edgy look than your hipster neighbors by taking such a fearless risk.

The door below has an industrial style design with a large handle.  Keeping it fresh and fun and certainly unique it’s been painted this bright almost mustard color.  With the white walls contrasting it, it really makes the door an eye magnet.  This inspiration could use several colors because of the simplicity surrounding it.

This retro door is modernized by upscaling it with an all black door, but the trim around it is a beautiful sky blue making it an adventurous contrast of modern design with a retro feel.

Let Glass Make Your Painted Door The Centerpiece

Glass is such a great dynamic in any form of design.  With doors featuring outlandish or exciting paint designed to be complimented by a glass window on the side only reflects the color palate determined by you!

This pea green door is a bold color, but features a door with a glass window and two windows on the side giving it a look of class, and slightly audacious.  Pea green is not a color to be used lightly, and in this case the glass contrast works out brilliantly.

When using bright or bold colors having glass or a secondary contrast so the bold color isn’t too overwhelming and keeps the look classy is important.  The picture featured below shows exactly how a bold door uses glass without making the door itself too overwhelming.

Unlike the other two examples above this beautiful blue door is used in a simple, classic, and elegant design.  The windows on the side aren’t a part of the door but instead are a compliment to the door.

Capture Your Decor With Bold Colors

Door design or window decor to tone down the boldness of a colored door are not always necessary, sometimes a bold color that stands alone can be quite powerful and attractive all on his own.

Paint your door with a plum purple just like this door featured below.  It sounds perhaps a little wild and crazy, but as you can see with the white textured walls, and green shrubbery it turns into an attractive accent.

This simple door is brightened by a bold orange color.  The house and door aesthetic is simple making the color pop and become a real source of interest, but it also compliments the trees and colors of plants and trees around it.

Below is another design that features green as a bold color, but it’s being used in a very classic way.  The trim of the door, the wreath, are all quite simple, but the color is whimsical and fun.
