Paint your front door this color and boost your home’s selling price by $6,200

When it comes to paint color, homeowners may have reason to go back to black.

Houses with front doors in shades of black — from charcoal to jet — fetched $6,271 more than expected when sold, according to the latest paint color analysis from real-estate website Zillow ZG, -2.16%

The analysis looked at more than 135,000 photos from listings of homes that sold between 2010 and 2018, comparing the sales price of properties with colorful designs to those with white walls.

A black front door wasn’t the only bold design choice that paid off for home sellers. Tuxedo-style kitchen cabinetry — where the upper cabinets are white or light-colored and lower cabinets or kitchen islands are dark navy or black — garnered a premium of more than $1,500.
