Bold new Exterior Door colors for 2014

MAUMEE, OHIO – Raucous Orange. Quixotic Plum. Relic Bronze. These are just some of the bold colors that national color expert Kate Smith predicts will be most popular on residential door exteriors in 2014.

"There are two trends I see influencing front door colors for 2014," says Smith, chief color maven and president of Sensational Color. "First, there's the trend of people painting their doors with exuberant hues as a way of telling the world they're tired of spinning their wheels in place. These people are ready to move forward, embrace challenges and show their energy through vibrant colors like Capri blue and Dynamo raspberry.

"The other trend is that some people are seeking colors that are vibrant yet at the same time connect us to a sense of community and culture. These simpler colors, like Classic French Gray and Polished Mahogany, give us comfort, warmth and reliability, which are found in these rich paint colors."

For homeowners looking to express their "colorful self," Smith recommends selecting paintable doors, such as Therma-Tru® Classic-Craft® Canvas Collection® and Pulse® doors. "These smooth-finish doors are ideal for adding personal expression to a home," says Smith. "They feature clean lines, crisp angles and attractive glass configuration options. By painting the doors in unique colors to match the homeowner's personality, people can really make a statement with these durable doors."
