Be bold with door colour

Choosing the colour of your front door can be daunting, particularly when opting for a PVC-U option that can’t be repainted. That being said, the colour you select can make your front door stand out for all the right reasons. There are many ways to select the perfect front door colour for you. Better Homes & Gardens recommends drawing inspiration from the front doors around you as the best place to begin:

“Think about your favorite front doors. Perhaps a sunny yellow one at a friend’s house makes you feel especially welcome at a cottage-style home. Or, that bright red front door on a neighbor’s house lends trend-forward detail to an updated ranch. Whatever the case, a well-chosen front door color makes an immediate impact, complementing a home’s style and improving curb appeal.”

Dare to be different with frames

In addition to choosing your front door colour, the shade of the frame that surrounds it can define the final look and feel. The colour of the door frame doesn’t have to be the classic, ubiquitous white. Creating contrast is a route many home improvers take to add interest to the external appearance of their properties.
