An Expert Reveals Why Black Is The Perfect Color For Your Front Door
Your house's curb appeal can greatly influence how quickly you can sell it, and studies have shown that the number one door color to help sell your home is black.
As Amanda Pendelton, a home trends expert with Zillow, says, "On the right home, a shiny new coat of black paint feels classic. It's a high-contrast color, so it really pops."
Neutrals like black are timeless, and they will always play well with versatile palettes and other colors. Black specifically telegraphs sophistication, elegance, and prestige.
In a 2022 study, Zillow found that homes with black doors were outselling similar homes with other door colors by $6,449, impressive since it’s only about a $50 investment.
Tricorn Black by Sherwin Williams is a popular color, as it's a true black that works with warm and cool undertones. For a slightly warmer black tone, try Benjamin Moore's Onyx.
