Interesting Paint Colors

The quickest way to upgrade or revamp your house’s front door is to just paint it using distinctive colors. Red is considered as one of the most popular and interesting front door color, regardless the architecture style of your house. However, choose the paint in accordance with the door type.

For instance, there are numerous primers and paints for steel, wood door surfaces and fiberglass. To get the most durable option, go with semi-gloss or gloss. In fact, sheen holds up a lot better against scratches and nicks, making bolder colors appear better.

Not to mention, contrast is the key. So, you may also go with a bold color paint that would easily stand out from your house’s color.

Metal Doors

If you need more of an artisanal look, both contemporary and warm, then go with the metal front door. Considering the strong industrial trend, black steel is a famous choice although stainless steel and copper front doors are always fashionable.

Distressed black steel gives a custom look. Similarly, bronze door highlights create a mixed metal appeal that is quite famous in interior design.  Plus, you can also go with wood and steel and both these styles work great and give out a more modern to rusty appeal to your front door.

Steel Atrium Doors

If you are searching an industrial chic door that is less run of the mill, then steel atrium door is your best bet. It is one of the latest trends and works with nearly any architectural style. The most popular choice in steel atrium doors is the combination of glass work and black steel grid.

To get maximum flexibility, the Sanford Florida Realtors suggest, installing a pivot steel atrium door that can easily glide both ways on a fixed track. You may also go with a custom carved steel atrium door that easily offset the angular and sharp lines of a traditional home. To get a more grand entrance, improve your front door scale by surrounding it with additional glass panels on each side as well as on top.
