Your entry doors have a big impact on your home’s overall appearance. That’s why it’s critical to pick the right color for your doors. You want your doors to enhance your home’s appearance without overwhelming it or sticking out for the wrong reasons.
Renewal by Andersen® of Kentucky shares some tips on how to choose the right door color.
The Color Wheel Approach
Regardless of where it is placed, a door’s appearance should make an impact. To make sure it attracts the right kind of attention, whether it’s from guests or neighbors, you may draw inspiration and ideas from the color wheel. Monochromes and complementary hues are timeless choices. You may want to follow suit if your neighborhood adheres to a certain color scheme. In any case, neutral shades are often the safest pick.
Make It Personal
Adding a personal touch to aspects of your home will not only increase comfort levels but also boost curb appeal. If you want to accentuate your garden and the various shrubs you hand-planted, opt to color your patio doors green. Lighter hues of green will make the hedges and other natural elements stand out.
Texture and paint finish are important considerations as well. High-gloss paint offers a bolder finish. However, a shiny finish is more prone to betray fingerprints and signs of damage. Matte finish, on the other hand, is more subtle and can blend in better with the rest of your home’s paint. As a general rule, primer should be used to prepare the door for the paint application. Swatching is also essential to ensure the proper pigment is chosen for the door.
