When selecting the perfect paint color for your entryway, think about how you want to welcome guests into your home. Your entrance can set the mood for the entire house and everyone living in it. On the practical side, entryways have a lot of traffic, so a highly washable and durable product, like RegalĀ® Select Interior, is the perfect type of paint.

Dramatic Entrance

If you like to make a dramatic entrance, drench your entrance in a rich, bold paint color. Using strong, bold colors will create a memorable first impression. If you have a small entrance, darker hues can give character to the space. Plus, darker paint colors also hide dirt which is very important for an entrance. Darker colors can help with kids, dogs, and everything else bumping through the front door. Don’t forget that the back of your main entrance door also needs to be included in your design.

Light Entrance Colors

The classic white colors are always popular for an entrance or any room for that matter. Light entryway colors that are neutral are attractive to many home owners because they keep the entrance open and airy. Remember, you can always add color in furniture, accessories and artwork. You can also add an additional dimension to the entrance by adding colors to wainscoting, trim or even an accent wall. You do not have to settle on just one color.

Before deciding on any color, make sure that you paint a small sample so you can see how light affects the color. Remember, colors look different during different hours of the day. Buy a small pint (Benjamin Moore Color Sample), brush it on, and test how the light impacts the color with the door open, partially open, and fully closed during both day and night.

Fight Against Scuffs

Entrances are always prone to more scuffs and scratches compared to almost all other areas of the house. You can decide to touch up the paint in the entrance whenever the scuffs get too bad, or you can use Scuff-X. Ultra Spec Scuff-X Latex Paint is scuff resistant, durable and can be washed down much more easily, so you and your family can enjoy your home without worrying about the walls. The line is available in 3 finishes: Matte, Eggshell, and Satin; and is available in a wide range of color choices numbering in the thousands.
