Your home’s front door should be a dynamic focal point that brings together the colour scheme of your siding, windows and roof, enhancing curb appeal and offering a warm welcome to your guests. The colour you select for your home’s point of entry is also a reflection of your own personal style and taste.
For many, picking colours for any kind of exterior or interior décor is a challenge. It doesn’t always come naturally. But there is logic and science to colour choice, and a little bit of research will help you make an attractive choice. A great start is to look at a colour wheel.
Winning colour schemes based on the colour wheel include:
Monochromatic: Several shades of a single colour
Analogous: Colours found side by side on the colour wheel
Contrast: Three colours spaced evenly apart on the colour wheel
Complementary: Two hues opposite each other on the colour wheel
The style of your home is a good guide for what works and what doesn’t in choosing a front door colour. Take into account the materials of your exterior, the architectural style of your home, even the surrounding landscape.
In addition to siding and windows, Gentek offers a full selection of exterior building products, including a wide range of entry doors. You can choose from a wide selection of “First Impressions by Gentek” doors, which includes fiberglass, privacy, wrought iron and other styles.
