Spring is in full swing, and that means it’s time to start paying more attention to your home’s exterior! For some homeowners, that might mean adding flowers or décor to the porch. However, there’s a much more dynamic way to add colour to enhance your home’s curb appeal, and that’s with colour windows and doors.
While white might be the first option that springs to mind when you think about the appearance of your windows and doors, Steavi Potter of Brock Doors and Windows has informed us that coloured windows and doors are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners.
“Black, dark browns, and dark greys [are the most popular options]”, Potter says. “While dark walnut [is the most sought after option] for fibreglass doors.”
How to Add Colour via Doors and Windows
Wondering how best to incorporate new colour into your home’s existing look? First, you’ll want to consider your home’s façade. Whether you have brick or siding, stucco, stone, or a combination of materials, you’ll want to select your windows or doors in a colour that plays well with your home’s exterior. However, keep in mind, that this doesn’t mean that everything must match.
“[Windows and doors] don’t necessarily need to match each other,” Potter says. “[However], windows and garages are usually in the same colour family”.
The front door is the place where people tend to be the most creative with colour. In fact, home décor magazines and blogs, Instagram and Pinterest are filled with images of beautiful front doors in gorgeous colours.
We looked through the entry door selection offered by Brock Doors and Windows online and there are some beautiful colour options available. The rich greens, gorgeous reds, and calming blues really seemed to pop.
“[Brock Doors and Windows] offers approximately 20 – 40 colour options for doors,” Potter says. “[Along with] 10 colour options for garages, and window options vary by window type.”
Choosing the Right Doors and Windows
In addition to choosing the right colour for your doors and windows, there are several other things you’ll want to consider before making your purchase. Here are four other important things to remember:
- Have a clear understanding of your budget
- Be aware of the type of material you prefer
- Consider the size of your door frame or how many windows you will need
- Know the style you’re looking for
