Your front door is the first impression a guest has when he or she enters your home, so finding the right look—one that says exactly what you want it to say—is absolutely essential. The best front door is welcoming and meshes well with the rest of the house. If you have a brick exterior, you may think there aren't many front door color choices, but you'd be surprised how many tones and hues work well with brick.

Here are 10 of our favorite front door colors for brick houses.
