What does the colour of your front door say about you?
With advances in front door technology, the world’s now your oyster when it comes to choosing styles and colours. New generation PVCu doors in particular have opened a world of possibilities when it comes to striking designs which can be Kolorbonded in any colour. But when you’re able to select absolutely any shade, how do you make the right choice and what will it say about you to the outside world?
Maybe you want your home to stand out with an energetic pop of colour or perhaps you’d prefer a more subtle front door. The most recognisable front door in the world is rumoured to be Number 10 Downing Street – if you like this classic look, a timeless black could be perfect for your home too. Or maybe you’d like to brighten up a dull entranceway by expressing yourself with a cheerful colour radiating warmth; the happiest front door colour is said to be yellow and on a sunny day a golden door is sure to create a sense of optimism, bringing a smile to your face. Of course, if you’ve been swept along with the craze for grey, then you’ll probably want to opt for a serene shade of the most fashionable colour of the moment.
Your entrance way should be welcoming, reflect your personality and give a hint of what’s to come inside. Blue is the most versatile shade – go for navy if you like tradition or opt for cool blues, teals and fun turquoises if a seaside feel is more your thing. Perhaps you’re feeling creative and want to send the message you’re a social butterfly – contemporary shades of orange might be right for you. Extroverted shades of purple will show people you’re not afraid to make bold statements and take risks. And if you’re someone who wears their heart of their sleeve, opt for pinks to reveal your romantic side or reds to suggest nostalgia and passion. Browns and greens hint at nature; if you love green and want to stand out from the crowd, choose a vibrant shade of contemporary lime green. Or to create a sense of a peace, go for timeless creams and other neutral shades.
If you’re thinking of changing your front door, it can be a great way of making a small change that will have a big impact on the outside appearance of your home. An impressive exterior not only improves the aesthetic but can also add to the perceived value. So what are you waiting for?
