Design Tips

  • Dual-Tone Doors

    Don't be afraid to paint one side of the door a different color than the other side!

  • The rule of three

    If you're painting an exterior door a bold statement color, keep in mind the rule of 3—a house color, a trim color, and a door color!

  • Consistent Color Flow

    If you paint the door a different color than the trim, keep the trim the same color as the baseboard that it is attached to. It will help keep the flow of the room consistent. Or to simplify, paint the door, trim, and baseboard all the same color. Don't be afraid to have fun with it... I promise, you won't regret it!
