Front door and garage door
July 30, 2013
Going to be replacing my garage door and front door? I was thinking a dark deep red or burgandy for front door and a claystone color for garage door. Does this make sense?
Thanks Kim

I don't know what you have chosen for the style of the door, but I would encourage you to choose something with a row or two of glass panels to break up the large plain area of the door relative to the entire house. To my eye It would be nicer if the proportions of the panels in the door were more rectangular than square-like as they currently are.

You likely do not want have the garage door be a focal point of your house as seen from the sidewalk/street, so a color choice that is more muted and picks up one of the lighter colors your brick or roofing might be appropriate. Because you have mature landscaping that appears to be in good shape, I would tend to select paint colors for the wood siding, trim, and doors that have more subtle differences than those you have currently.
