We all know first impressions count, but it’s easy to neglect the outside of our homes in the excitement of decorating inside.
The good news is the latest range of Weathershield paints for woodwork and masonry come in an array of colours, so it’s easy to choose perfectly paired shades to give your home serious kerb appeal.
Painting your front door is a quick and easy way to revitalise your entryway, so you can afford to go for your favourite colour, whether that’s a neutral or a bolder shade, such as this rich Royal Berry, which works beautifully with the country style of the house.
Other classic shades include Oxford Blue, Cranberry Crunch, Highland Green and the UK’s favourite front door colour, Brilliant White.
More contemporary homes look good in Gallant Grey, Dove Slate or always Rich Black.
When it comes to walls, though, a neutral shade is often best. It will look stylish and allow your door to be the star. And with the Weathershield Promise, you can be confident it’ll last for as long as you live in your home*.
If you have any issues with peeling, flaking or mould growth within the paint film over the following 15 years, we’ll return the value of a replacement product to you.
And all the Weathershield paints are quick-drying, so you can be confident about starting the job, even if good weather isn’t guaranteed for the whole day.
Choosing a neutral colour for your masonry doesn’t necessarily mean white or off-white, though – this Green Ivy looks elegant with the purple, and shows off the foliage beautifully.
If you have plants or shrubs, especially flowering ones, at the front of your house, take these into account when you’re choosing your colours.
Mix touches of black or white into the scheme, too – the window frames here sharpen the look for a polished finish.
And if your frames are uPVC, no worries – Weathershield Multisurface will cover them beautifully.
