My Top Picks for Purple Front Doors

Purple Energy (Clark and Kensington)

This is my front door, and it’s certainly a “safer” purple front door color. Also nearly impossible to get a nice photo of it, haha. I will keep trying, though. It’s a muted purple that would go well with just about any color scheme. Curious about the color purple? Find out what it means.

Majestic Violet (Benjamin Moore)
Purple Rain (Valspar)

A plum/eggplant purple front door color is perfect for someone inspired by the dark and mysterious. For the sophisticated and the elegant, this color of purple gives off a vibes of wealth and prosperity.

Burgundy Velvet (Clark & Kensington)

Don’t forget what your purple front door color will look like from the inside of your home. It’s important to make sure it doesn’t completely clash with the decor of the room in the front of your home.  If it does, try painting a vase, picture frame, or flower pot in the same purple front door color. Or choose an area rug that pulls in the door color with the other colors of your room!

Mountain Ridge (Benjamin Moore)

How about a strong and bold color that makes a statement? I like this gorgeous raisin with undertones of purple and gray and brown. It’s an unusual color for a front door. A little mysterious.

Not too light, not too dark, this purple is so pretty. I love how it pops against the green foliage.
