The Right Shade to Paint Your Patio Door

The Right Shade to Paint Your Patio Door

May 18, 2018

From the interior to the exterior, your patio door is a important transition. The right color and shade can make it stand out. It takes a specific design, however, to pull off the most vibrant of colors. A safe alternative is to paint doors with neutral colors like gray, beige and brown.

The Right Shade to Paint Your Patio Door

At Renewal by Andersen®, your local experts on the design and installation of doors, we explain why neutral colors are great and how you can find one that works for your design.

The Supportive Actor

Neutral colors don’t stand out unless they need to. They can provide your door with an unassuming look by highlighting the surroundings, instead of pulling attention to itself. Neutral colors can blend in so that the visual focus can be on a decorative piece, such as the floor of your gazebo or even the design of the entire patio. In our catalog, we recommend white and sandstone as reliable, supportive colors.

Versatile Blend

Other than being a great choice for your patio doors by shifting the visual focus away from the door, neutral colors also have the advantage of blending with any style. No matter what architectural design you have, neutral colors can fit in easily.

This is a stark contrast to more vibrant colors like orange or yellow, which work well in some styles but clash horribly with others. For example, our sandstone and canvas colors can fit most styles ranging from Renaissance to Victorian architecture.

Visually Admirable at all Times

One of the best advantages of neutral colors is how they never overstay their welcome. Other colors might look good for the first few weeks. After that, however, the color can fade, or they can be come tiresome. Look at white or oak or Terratone, though; they never look out of place. You can use them for several years and they will always still feel appropriate. That’s how visually calming neutral tones are.

We provide neutral colors for both our windows and doors. If you have any design in mind, call us at (262) 522-3034 for your free, in-home consultation in Milwaukee and nearby areas.

Hear From Our Customers

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.
