Painting your front door

The Grand Entrance

When choosing a colour to paint your new front door or to revamp the old one, you should step back from the front of your house, look directly at the front and then take your gaze up to the top of the roof.

This is the advice of revamp specialists for homeowners who are considering making a statement from the front door to the roof.

They also suggest you "paint the front door in glossy hues to make it stand out."
