Homes with Black Doors Sell for More!

Homes with Black Doors Sell for More!

Posted by DecoArt on Jul 4th 2018

Everyone buying or selling a house this year knows 2018 is a seller's market. The process goes quickly and the sellers want to get the best price possible. An easy way to catch the buyer's eye and to get your asking price (or more), is to makeover your front door. According to MSN, however, not all colors will do the trick. They say "when it comes to paint color, homeowners may have reason to go back to black," because houses with black doors sold for, on average, $6,200 more than expected (according to Zillow). 

Painting your front door any color from charcoal to jet black will have this effect! Not only does this look have mass curb appeal, but it goes with any decor style, so browsing buyers won't feel like it doesn't fit their style. Moreover, black doors go with every season! Check out Heather's black door and how it looks great with a variety of seasonal decor, day or night.  

Our Americana Decor Curb Appeal colors Colonial Black and Nantucket Grey are both perfect options to achieve this look! You can purchase these Curb Appeal colors at our retailers or from our online store.  

Still not convinced this is a great idea? Check out these gorgeous black doors from two of our Core Creators:

Jaclyn of One Thousand Oaks used Americana Decor Curb Appeal paint since it's a budget-friendly option with high-quality benefits! Jaclyn said the paint was "wonderful to work with" because of its one-coat coverage and durable finish. 

Lucy of Craftberry Bush used Americana Decor Curb Appeal in Colonial Black as an easy way to spruce up her front porch. She also painted her metal railings with it so everything looked coordinated and fresh!
