As a New Hampshire Home Stager I've seen many prematurely gray homes....older than their years.
Is your front door showing it's age? It's time for a color!
I'm here to tell you that you shouldn't be afraid to paint wood. For many people painting over wood is considered blasphemy, but not all wood is created equal.
Oak is dated and an oak front door is like gray hair on your house.
Paint the front door! It really doesn't matter whether you go vibrant or play it safe, or whether you choose a color based on Feng Shui or fashion trends.
Call a home stager for a color consult if you feel you need professional advice.
For the cost of a quart of paint, you can subtract years from the age of your house and add thousands to it's value.
Don't be afraid to paint over wood!
While you're getting a color you might as well get a manicure too....
chances are the hardware also needs updating.
You don't have to buy new - we spray painted the existing door handle with great results.
Door color is Valspar Fired Earth
Hardware is Rust-Oleum Textured Black
fyi....this is my "new" home, and you can see more of our recent updates in my series:
