When you’re choosing your new front door, colour is extremely important. You want a welcoming feel every time you come home as well improving your kerb appeal. A front door is often where a first impression of a house is created. If you want to make a statement with your door, you need to consider the colour carefully.
Blend or contrast?
Keep in mind the colour of the rest of the property including the brickwork. If you’re conscious of matching and blending, this is especially important. If you have timber cladding or a traditional home, a wood coloured finish such as Irish Oak would work well. Remember though that composite doors all have the appearance of traditional timber. Have you considered matching with your window frames? This would create a great aesthetic effect and continuous flow through your home.
Compare all your options
Sometimes the bolder the better when it comes to choosing exterior colours. What you would never choose for your interior design might look perfect for your door. Depending on the time of day, the colour could change so bear this in mind when you’re comparing shades. Ask to see samples of different colours so you can see how they would look throughout the day.
What’s your style?
What colours are your favourites? A front door is often your chance to express yourself and use a colour that would be too much on a wall. Go with something bold to brighten up your tired looking home or use gentle pastel shades if this is your style.
Keeping up with the neighbours
Take a look at the other doors in your neighbourhood. If you pick a distinct and bright colour, will your home stand out from the rest? Is that what you want or would you rather blend in? Whatever colour you choose, with a brand new front door your neighbours will be green with envy.
Make your front door your own
Another way you can personalise your door is by using hardware. Choose from authentic pewter and lion knockers or pick chrome for a thoroughly modern appearance. Glazing can also be another way to incorporate colour into your door. Choose from a range of patterns that can have as much or as little colour as you like.
