Choosing a Colour for your Front Door

Your front door is the focal point of your home and the first thing guests will see when visiting you. Your front door can make a great statement and express your sense of style and personality.

Things to consider when choosing a colour:

  • It is important to co-ordinate the door with the rest of the house, look at the colours and tones in the walls, are they brick, stone or Stucco.
  • What is the style and period of your home. Victorian houses lend themselves well to a pop of colour, Modern and contemporary styles favour more neutral colours.
  • Where are you located, consider the surrounding area, do you want to stand out or blend in. Are there any local restrictions, and are you city based or rural.
