Colours that can be used on front doors and garage doors

So it matters what colour your front door is, and it will therefore also matter what colour your garage door is as to make your house attractive, you need colours that can be used on front doors and garage doors.
When you buy aluminium, steel or GRP doors, you’ll be asked choose the colour of the materials when you order them. This means that you’ve got to choose wisely, as you’ll have to live with your decision for many years to come! Unsurprisingly, the colours on offer by the manufacturers tend to be classics, such as white, cream, timber colours, greens, blues, greys and warm reds and burgundies.
The materials your door is made out of will obviously have an impact on the colour. Wooden doors will give your more scope for creativity because if you get it wrong, you can simply repaint. So if you want to express yourself with the latest colour fashions on a regular basis, then opt for wooden doors.
