Find the perfect colour for your entry doors

The colour of front doors can say a lot about a house. Actually, it says a lot about its occupants too. Even Hollywood has cashed in on the statement entry doors can make. Remember the blue door from Notting Hill (starring Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant)?

 

There is no reason why your entry door has to be the same colour and style as every other door on your street. Add a little style statement to your house with the perfect colour. In this article we are looking at how you can find the perfect colour for your entry doors.

 

Entry doors need to make an impact

Front doors are the entry to your home. Just like the interiors reflect your style, your entry door should too. After all, it’s the first thing visitors will see. With a large collection of door styles, finishes and colours to choose from, Eco Choice are your go-to when it comes to getting the right entry doors for your home. Best of all, our professional installers will have the door installed perfectly.

 

Our doors are ‘green’ too. No, not the colour (though they can be green). They are thermally efficient, making for a warmer and more comfortable home.

 

What colour should my door be?

Colour is the simplest way of adding some… er, colour to your front doors. Pick a shade that will be tasteful, stylish and distinctive. Yellow, blue and red are great options. They tread the fine line between classy and garish. In fact, depending on your surroundings, a simple black or white door may be fitting too. After all, you don’t want to clutter your frontage with too many colours.

 

Set the right mood

The colour of your door can have a profound impact on mood. Not just on others’, your mood too. A bright and bold colour may seem exciting at first, but it can become grating to look at every day.

 

Front doors that bring good fortune

Colours represent a great many things. In fact, cultures around the world regard different colours for their auspiciousness. Some cultures regard red as a symbol of prosperity and good fortune, others consider it a sign of virility. Of course, white is quite universally recognized as a symbol for peace and harmony. Why not add a spiritual and cultural twist with the colour of your door.

 

Get the right personality for your home

The colour of your door will affect the personality of your home. A traditional Tudor or Victorian house teamed with a white or black door will exude a traditional and cossetting personality. On the other hand, bold architectural elements and contemporary glass facades need a little colour. For instance, a yellow or red door can really break the tension of Bauhaus architecture.

 

Reflecting your surroundings

Do you have a house overlooking the sea? Do you live in that part of the country that is covered in snow for the better part of the year? Location should definitely factor in your colouring decision. If you are by a water body, a teal or cyan coloured door will reflect the mood. Similarly, if your house is in an area that sees a lot of snowfall, consider a colour that will stand out against white.

 

Inspiration everywhere

Nature and your surroundings have a lot of inspiration to offer. Try and make sure your doors work in harmony with your surroundings. When you choose to replace doors with coloured doors, think also how other elements can add to the ambience. Plant flowers or shrubbery to get some contrast; a picket fence too can make for an interesting aesthetic.
