If you have a home in the Catskills or Hudson Valley upstate NY areas you may have a front door painted red. I was curious, as to the meaning of a homes front door painted red, as Kellogg's Painting does paint a lot of doors red in the Catskills and Hudson Valley New York areas.
Going back in time a homes front door painted the color red meant welcome. Tired travelers using horse and buggy would know that they could stop in your home and rest, as they would be welcomed.
This Hudson Valley homes front door was painted red by the painters at Kellogg's Painting in Leeds, NY.
If you want welcoming energy then painting your Hudson Valley or Catskills homes front door red is for you. In Feng Shui your homes front door is known as the "Mouth of Chi", which energy enters. If you believe in Feng Shui then painting your door red welcomes positive energy into your home.
Churches painted the doors red to represent the blood of Christ.Once you walked in the church through the red doors that would signify you where on holy ground. Some people believe that a red front door will protect its homes occupants from evil.
When a home owner paid off their mortgage in Scotland they would paint the front door red. This would signify that they now own the home debt free.
These may not be all of the reasons for a red front door, but through research they seem to be the most common meanings of a front door painted red.

Most recent exterior painting project in Hudson, NY. We did a complete exterior re-paint, including staining of the fence surrounding this mid 1800s Hudson home. Our painters paid attention to the detail, including the mint green doors on the front.

A remodel project or new furniture will certainly transform your space but can be very costly, but you can still transform your living space without spending a small fortune. The fastest and easiest way to freshen up a room and make it feel updated is to give it a fresh coat of paint. There’s no need to buy expensive tools or invest a great deal of time into the project. With a little bit of planning and the help of a professional painter, you can turn any boring room in your home into something marvelous.
The first step is deciding how you want the room to feel. Some colors, like blues and greens, are more relaxing and will encourage people to sit down,relax and kick their feet up. Other colors, like vibrant yellows and bright shades will create an upbeat feel. There is no right or wrong decision. The only thing that matters is that you find a color that feels great and makes you want to spend time in the room.
When choosing the right color, keep in mind that it will look different in your room at home than it does on the paint chip in the store. Your home has different lighting, ant the surroundings and accents are also different. What looks like the perfect match under bright fluorescent lights could be garish in your softer lighting at home. Pick up a few bottles of sample paint and have them tinted to the colors you are considering. You can then paint an area on the wall at home. This way you can see how the paint will look in different lightings and decide whether it really is the perfect fit.
The final decision is to choose the type of paint you will use. This is based on more than simply personal preference. You should also take into account the room it’s going in, how dirty it will get and how well it should handle being cleaned. As a general rule of thumb, you can simply remember that as paint takes on a more reflective surface it becomes more durable and better able to withstand the effects of moisture and cleaning.
Flat paint has no reflective quality and will provide a muted finish. It will also wipe off relatively easily when you try to clean it, so it’s not a good choice for kitchens, bathrooms or high traffic areas. Gloss paint has a high shine to it and can be scrubbed thoroughly. This makes it the perfect choice for trim work, doors and other areas that will be prone to fingerprints or dust. When painting the bedrooms, living rooms and other areas, a good compromise would be satin or semi-gloss paint. They can both be scrubbed butaren’t as shiny as a regular gloss paint.
There is no limit to the transformation you can create with a new coat of paint.You can easily change the look and feel of your space, create visual borders or add drama and dimension. Choose your paint color carefully and give some thought to the type of paint for a finished product that you will be thrilled with and proud of.

When choosing paint colors to paint your house or office it can be a daunting task. There are 3 general groups of paint schemes:
Find an existing dominant color that you like or wish to keep, in the room or on the house. On an exterior, this could be the color of the brick or stone, pre-finished windows, or roof. For an interior, it could be the color of your sofa, flooring, art work, or window coverings.
Determine what kind of feeling you wish to have in the room or on the home. Warm colors such as red, orange, yellow, or beige, can create an invigorating mood or add cozy intimacy to large spaces. They can help to warm up a room that has northern or eastern exposure. Blues, greens, violets, or grays, the cool colors, give a serene feeling and can add spaciousness to small spaces. The balance between light colors and deep colors should be considered.
