Color Of The Side Of The Exterior Front Door

Painting your front door to an accent color can totally change the appearance of the exterior of your home. Usually, this would not be a color that you would want on the edge that opens into the home. Painting the edge of the door would make that exterior accent color into an interior accent color.

Interior doors can have some flexibility in the side color. 95% of the time you would paint the edge of the door the same color as the trim that the door opens into. When trim color changes from room to room, you will want to also paint the door jam the color of the edge of the door where the door closes.
