TOM: Your front door is key to curb appeal, but did you know its color announces how you feel about your home? Hi, I’m Tom Kraeutler.
LESLIE: And I’m Leslie Segrete with today’s Money Pit Home Improvement Minute.
TOM: The colors we choose for our homes express personality, emotions and values, and this is especially true for the front door. If you’d like to make a new statement for 2017, consider the psychology behind front door colors.
LESLIE: Ever-popular blue signals a calm relaxing retreat from a hectic world. Green’s also a popular choice and communicates health, safety and harmony.
TOM: A black front door expresses sophistication, strength, authority and substance. Finish that door in red instead to announce a vibrant home filled with life, energy and excitement.
LESLIE: A brown door conveys warmth, stability and reliability, but deeper shades can communicate a desire for privacy or even isolation. So know exactly what you mean to say before selecting a new front door finish. I’m Leslie Segrete.
