DOOR COLORS AND THE HOUSES THEY CAN COMPLEMENT

The U.S. has a rich architectural history that sees a wide range of home styles across different states. Equally rich are the reasons for each style’s unique popularity, as well as the character that each one exudes. Perhaps it was never intentional, but each design has its own unique color palette that has become a part of their identity

When it comes to picking the colors for Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis external doors, these play a very important part.

  1. White

The Georgian Federal style is a variation of the classic colonial residential design, and has one very distinct feature that makes them st and out: they’re built with a with a whole lot of bricks. This design choice lends a consistent reddish hue dominating the look of these homes. It’s not surprising that the best color for their exterior doors in St. Louis is white. What makes white a perfect choice is that the contrast between the two is pretty stark—drawing attention immediately to your doors.

  1. Black

A great option for external doors would be black. While modern homes come with flat roofs and simple lines, there isn’t a sense of unity when it comes to color. Nevertheless, many feature whites and greys. In this example, the color black serves to unify the subdued look brought about by the whites and greys.

  1. Canvas

It’s slightly tougher to find a color match for an exterior door when the purpose seems more to hide than be seen. Apart from white, the best option would be canvas, as the colors can st and out and lead visitors to your doorstep. With its prominent ver andas, low-pitch roof lines, overhanging eaves, and decidedly low-rise nature, the Craftsman Bungalow is actually a simple, convenient, and economic design. It is also very high on privacy.

  1. Terratone®

This is a good color choice for a door because it strikes the middle ground between light and dark. Terratone® will particularly fit with the Prairie style, which has the distinction of being the first design of American origin. With the horizontal shapes, browns, reds, and rust, it only makes sense to choose something slightly darker to contrast and st and out.

Reviews

"We had a large picture window and two side windows replaced. Everyone from the person who took our order to the installers were top notch. We got exactly what we wanted. Granted, we had to wait a few months, just like you do for everything these days, but we were told that up front. The windows were well worth the wait. We've replaced windows before by going to home maintenance stores. Don't waste your money on those. Our Renewal by Andersen windows look great, they operate like a dream, and are worth every penny. Quality through and through."
