If you’re thinking of selling, one of the quickest and easiest makeovers you can give your home is a fresh coat of paint to your front door. But did you know that the colour you choose can actually say something to your open home guests?
Here’s a round up of a few popular colours that you might consider, and some beautiful paints we found on the Resene website.
Nothing says “Welcome” more than a red front door. It’s a colour often used in hospitality and that’s the reason, it’s joyful and bold and invites your open home visitors to step inside and enjoy the warmth of your home. If you’re going red, go bold, take a look at Resene Trubridge Red
Yellow is warm and sunny. It will evoke a feeling of happiness in your open home guests before they have even stepped over the threshold. We like Resene Golden Fizz, it has a touch of lime that takes away the child like feel of many yellows and adds a degree of grown up sophistication.
Create a feeling of timeless elegance with a shiny black paint job. Just make sure the inside of your home matches what your guests will expect, tidiness and order! Resene All Black will do the job.
Stay with that feeling of tidiness and order, a white front door echoes perfection, so your open home visitors are going to expect a neat and clean interior. Resene Apricot White has a touch of creaminess to it that will ensure there is still some warmth in your welcome.
Green will generally tell your guests that you have traditional values and are community players. They’ll know straightaway that they’re entering a home that has been loved and cared for. We love Resene Amazon.
Blue promises a peaceful and tranquil home, your potential purchasers will know that they are dealing with trustworthy vendors. Take a look at Resene Astronaut.
If you decide not to paint and stick with a traditional wood finish, your open home guests will know that you have a down to earth attitude, that you’re generous and welcoming. Resene Driftwood has a finish that adds colour to the timber while allowing the natural grain to show through.
