From the curb to the foyer, the path to your home is a series of first impressions that all add up to a beautiful image of your home. That’s why the color of your entryway bears the same amount of consideration as your entry door and the rest of your home exterior. In this blog, Reliable Design-Build-Remodel shares some color inspirations for a beautiful entryway and gives a list of a few paint colors that work in tandem to create a beautiful entryway.
Paint Colors and What They Do:
You can’t go wrong with a classic like white. It can create a light and airy atmosphere and pairs well with any existing décor. Add pops of color to your entryway with colorful pieces like artwork or sculpture, or even a brightly-colored bowl that doubles as a drop zone for your keys. By simply changing any of the above pieces, you can easily change the way your entryway will look.
Gray is another neutral color that is associated with modern and sophisticated environments. It highlights dark accents like black or navy, as well as light accents such as white or cream. Gray can also be used to temper striking colors.
Light shades of blue create a calming and inviting atmosphere, while darker shades pair well with lighter colors such as white, gray or beige. They can also be paired with bold primary colors like red or yellow to create a striking look.
Red evokes excitement and energy. While it can be paired with many colors, it works well with whites and blues. Choose deeper shades such as burgundy or maroon if you want to add depth and richness to your entryway.
Green is refreshing and brings forth a lively atmosphere, and pairs well with lighter colors such as white or cream. You can also opt for muted shades of green to create a relaxing and calming ambience.
Black is similar to white in that it works with various colors. It differs in that it creates a dramatic atmosphere instead of light and airy. It can be used to temper overly-bright entryways. Instead of shades, compare finishes — a glossy black creates a different effect compared to satin or matte.
