Tips to boost kerb ap­peal

Tameside Advertiser - - HOMES -

the look of your front door is to change the door fur­ni­ture – chrome or satin nickel is more fash­ion­able than brass and gives a smart, con­tem­po­rary look, suited to both pe­riod and mod­ern doors.

Get metal door num­bers to match, or con­sider frosted-film num­bers if you have a glazed or par­tially glazed door or porch. They can be fid­dly to fit, but look great.

COLOUR SAVVy PAINT­ING the door a dif­fer­ent colour can also make a big dif­fer­ence.

Ide­ally, the colour should go with the build­ing’s brick­work, paint­work or other ex­te­rior fin­ish, and suit its age and style of ar­chi­tec­ture.

While some of the clas­sic colours are al­ways popular for front doors, in­clud­ing red, black and stately dark blue, there are also colour trends – greys and duck-egg blues and greens have be­come popular in re­cent years.
