Planning to upgrade your security doors and windows in the near future? If so, you might be surprised by the number of colors and design patterns available here at Iron Clad Security Doors in Metro Detroit, Michigan. Choosing the right color for your security doors will add value and visual appeal to your building’s exterior. Here are some tips to help you do just that.
Get Inspiration From The Building’s Existing Colors
Unless you plan on changing the colors of your building’s exterior in the near future, you can use the colors that are already there as a starting point for your color selection. You could pull from one of the subtle accent colors in your brick, or you could choose a color that contrasts the main shade of the façade. If you want your door to blend in with the front of your home, you could choose a color that closely matches your siding. No matter what direction you choose to go with your selection, you can start by looking at what you already have to work with.
Complement vs. Contrast
Most homeowners either choose a color to complement their home’s exterior or contrast it. For instance, if you have a light brown brick on the outside of your home, you might choose a beige security door color or a dark brown or black. The beige will blend in well, but a darker color will create a “pop” that will catch people’s attention. Many of our customers in Metro Detroit choose white security doors and windows because they have dark brick or dark vinyl siding on their homes. The white makes the home look brighter and more inviting, especially if the rest of the home has white trim.
Don’t Be Afraid To Be Bold
If you want your home to stand out in the neighborhood, don’t be afraid to choose a security door color that’s bold and daring. Blue, red, green and orange are great colors for front doors, as long as they work well with the other colors around the home. You could paint your window shutters or trim to match the color of your door, and then you will have beautiful bold accents all throughout the property. This is your chance to express yourself- show off your true colors!
