Welcome Your Guests In Style: 5 Front Door Looks You Should Try | Schlage

Here are 5 stylish front door color schemes, door hardware and lighting combinations that will help you welcome each of your guests in style.



Are you considering updating your front door and adding a little more curb appeal? According to this year's Hanley Wood Cost vs. Value report, a little curb appeal can go a long way in adding value to your home. One of the simplest and impactful ways to upgrade your curb appeal is simply through a fresh coat of paint and the right hardware to make it pop even more.


Here are a few of our favorite front door color schemes and hardware combinations that will help you welcome each of your guests in style.

1. Transitional refresh.

If you tend to incorporate pieces that span across different styles, you likely relate more to a transitional category. Transitional style became popular in the mid-1940s and has carried through to present day. It's a style that is both classic and timeless.


This transitional home with modern decor and a nod to nature with exposed wood ceiling pairs perfectly with the shade of blue-grey on this front door. It is polished off with a Camelot Style Keypad Lock and Handleset in Satin Nickel and accented by modern exterior lighting.

2. Unique pop.

Another way to bring your transitional style to life is to show your personality through a bold color and complementing accessories. The bright green succulents in this wreath pair well with the blue undertones of this bold purple door. The Camelot Style Deadbolt with Accent Lever in Satin Nickel looks stunning against this dark shade. It's an edgy, unconventional look for this traditional beige home but becomes refined once all the pieces come together.

3. Classic craftsman.

This front door look may be simple but is definitely not understated. Rectangular features in the door are carried through with the Century Style Schlage Touch Deadbolt in Satin Nickel and provides an exciting, modern edge that guests can expect to be carried throughout the style of the home. Clean lines and crisp white trim create curb appeal that is both modern and elegant.

4. Modern twist.

For a look that brings your traditional home in to the 21st century, try pairing Satin Brass hardware and accents with bright, bold colors. The Satin Brass finish is quickly becoming one of the more popular choices for the home as a modern update to Bright Brass. The Satin Brass lighting and handleset are carried through in the home by the modern accents in the entryway. The royal blue front door allows the subtle hints of gold in the hardware to be bold but not over the top.

5. Chic escape.

For a look that is both classic and unique, try pairing a popular hue with a mix of classic finishes. Color trends are shifting towards dustier, chalky tones that create an earthy feel. The soft, pale mint green door and satin nickel handleset is a feminine look that crosses style boundaries effortlessly when paired with the masculine, matte black lighting. It's a look that is both chic and refined.
