A New Red Front Door

I'm a sucker for red front doors! I think they are so cheerful and inviting. I need a new front door and of course, it has to be red. So trying to decide what style door, I checked out these beauties.
Red front doors tell me that the owner is not afraid of color. I love this color but am not a fan of the brass strip at the bottom.
Red front doors are classic favorites. I like this style but the little windows look like eyes to me.
Red front doors make a dramatic decorating statement. Love this one...or is it the gorgeous "other stuff" around the door? Wow!
A red front door is cheerful. I love this one but it's too much window for me.
Same with this one. Too much window.
Well, all the angst was removed from my decision making when my son, Jason, sent a picture of a door sold at Home Depot, took my color swatch and had this beauty installed and painted for me. He paid for it too. Thanks Jason! I love my red front door! It's perfect!

Love the Red door. I wish I could paint mine red but then it would look like we lived in a Christmas house as the house is green. My door is painted a very nice dk green, the paint name is "billiard-room"

Red doors always become a splash mostly because of aesthetic reasons. They’re being believed to ward off bad spirits and negative energy, making positive energy come inside. It's an eye-catching color, mainly because of its intense color. Well, it clearly complements your home's environment, so I think it's a great color for your door. :)

I always love seeing red doors, especially if it is combined with plain white walls, just like that on the third and fourth photos. The color is so strong and striking, and I think it can easily get the attention of everyone that passes by the house. And, it can be your house’s trademark. If anyone wants to come by at your house and you want to tell them how, you can always say, “The one with the red door is mine.” :P
