Many people don’t know that the color they choose for their windows and doors actually has a meaning. Most times colors are just picked because they are the colors that go well with other colors, or they are just the colors that the homeowner likes.
But each color has a different effect on us psychologically that can affect our mood and even how we feel before we enter someone’s home.

The Color Blue on Your Home
In addition to giving us a feeling of peace and tranquility when we see it, the color blue on a door or around a window says something to the people coming to visit the home. It says that the people that live in this house help others, that they are trusting and are devoted friends. Blue also calms people before they enter you home, so the color works to the benefit of both the homeowner and the visitor.
