Everyone is always thinking “How can I make my house unique?” In the day and age of subdivisions and homeowners associations, many homes look very similar (although many developers are starting to change this line of thinking and offering even more choices to homeowners and new builds). One of the things you can do as a homeowner is to paint your front door a unique color of paint. It’s easy, it’s simple, and it does not take very much time. And even better, it is a very inexpensive way to get a lot of individuality for what is typically the first entry into your home – the front door.
We have brought together some of the most unique front door paint colors from around the web into this one article. There are a number of different paints you can use here, between an enamel, gloss (high gloss or low gloss), latex, or stain or varnish. Many of the doors that will follow use stain or varnish (plus a clear coat for protection), but some use one of the aforementioned paint types as well. Just be sure you know the positives and negatives of each type of paint before you go out and buy some at your local Lowe’s. On to our collection of unique paint colors for your front door!

Orange, Blue, Gray Painted Doors Really Stand Out!
From Homedit.com, we have multiple doors with very unique colors. The bright orange door brings obvious flair to your home, while the gray door is more muted but brought out with the red accents. Blue and green are also great stand out colors you can use to make your home stand out. We also really like the use of the blue door and its house numbers. It is a very uncommon technique that turned out to look great.
