For “Gourmet” Curb Appeal, Paint that Front Door!

For “Gourmet” Curb Appeal, Paint that Front Door!


In recent years, I have become a bit of a foodie. I’ve nibbled delicious meals from all over the country and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that plating matters. A recent trip to Nebraska confirmed for me that a little garnish and some drizzled sauce can highlight the visual aspect of a meal and greatly elevate the entire dining experience. But what has this to do with painting?

What gourmet chefs and savvy homeowners have in common is the understanding that when appearance matters, a little thoughtful arrangement can have dramatic effects. If we can compare curb appeal to gourmet food plating, we might say that an eye-catching front door color is like a bold sweep of sauce or a striking rosemary garnish. A breathtaking front door can be the very highlight of curb appeal.


When it comes to front door colors, a little boldness often pays off. There’s an eye-catching dramatic hue for every color scheme. Some might feel unsure where to start or what color would best complement their home. For these reasons, we have created our Color Consultation service. Our experts at Luxdeco–the decorative division of Luxbrush Painting–are highly trained artisans and are ready to discuss design and color options. If you are trying to sell your home, we can help connect you to the hottest trends in market-friendly color schemes–for doors and more.

Even if you’re already in love with the color of your front door, there’s a good chance that Mother Nature isn’t. Vermont’s winter winds and bright sunny summers cause exterior paint to chip and fade. Doors are not immune to this. Is it time to freshen up that color? If you already love your door color, we can use our color-matching skills to find the exact shade and make it look brand new.

In our neck of the woods, painting the front door can be a maintenance measure. This does not mean, however, that it can’t be much more. Whether you’re getting your home market-ready or you just want it to live up to its full potential, we all need a little curb appeal in our lives.
