Have you ever been riding through a neighborhood and found yourself looking inquisitively at the house with the RED door? It never seems to fail that there is always at least one house in most neighborhoods with a RED door.
Never giving much thought to it, other than to secondarily question, ‘does it match’ the color of the home?’ or ‘why they painted the door red?’ Usually, my answer to the first question is ‘no.’ And as to the second question, well, that one is best answered by the homeowner. I can’t rightly say what would prompt a homeowner to paint the door of their house red.
But, my number one opinion to the question is ~Curb Appeal.~ Right? Of course! When you think about it, which house in the neighborhood quickly grabs your attention when you ride or walk through? Yes, you guessed it! The one with the RED door. But not fully convinced that homeowners were painting their doors red strictly for curb appeal, especially when it didn’t seem to match the color scheme of the house, I decided to dig a little deeper.
Some of the top reasons for a red door that I found are to indicate:
The home is Mortgage Free, paid in full;
Biblical symbolism of one’s faith where red represents the blood of Christ, restored life, and protection;
A message of Welcome to weary travelers;
A Safe Place during slavery in the Underground Railroad Movement;
Luck, as in the Chinese culture; or
Positive energy in feng shui.
