Red is one of the most prominent colors of fall and the upcoming Christmas season, which may be why it is a color that has been on your mind lately. This seasonal color makes the holidays fun, but it is also a color that looks good on a house.
So if you are looking for new windows and doors during this holiday season, think about having them done in red to bring that fun to the outside of your home.
A Traditional Front Door Color
Red is actually a traditional front door color that is used throughout the world. The reasons for the use of this color on the front door range from it bringing the home good luck, a religious symbol for the interior of that particular building being holy, and a sign to visitors that they are welcome in the home.
Many homeowners in the United States though, use red on their front doors because it looks good; and our two reds that are available for front doors are just that.
Our first red, Mountain Berry, is a dark red that could pass for a burgundy. It is a color that will bring an added elegance to any home.
The second red that we offer for our front doors is Vallis Red. This red is a brighter shade of red that is more fun than elegant, but is a color that can brighten the mood of any visitor that arrives at your home.
Red around the Windows
Red around the windows is a great color to use if you are looking to draw attention to your beautiful windows. It’s like your windows waving a big flag at anyone that passes by to say, “Hey, look at me”.
Our windows come in 47 different combinations, but our only red (Red Rock) has to be the one that stands out from the rest. It is a deep red color that isn’t too bright and isn’t too dark, but that perfect shade of red that makes a home look good.
Best of all it is maintenance free so it will never crack, rot or need repainting.
Don’t Overdo Red
As much as we love the color red, it is a color where a little goes a long way. It is a color that looks great on window and doors, but not so much when the entire outside of the home is all painted red.
Too much red can create negative feelings, so find a good compatible color for your home’s siding and leave the red to just the windows and doors.
