My new front door-- and a question

Posted by sas95 (My Page) on

A while back I asked for some advice for a new front door, and appreciated the generous advice I received. So I thought I'd post the results. Here's the before. Coincidentally, the day before the new door arrived, I went to open the door and the doorknob came off in my hands as I heard a loud crack.

And here's the finished project. I know it's only a door, but it makes such a difference that I almost feel like I have a new house.

One question. We need to repaint all of the trim. Would you suggest keeping the same color or changing it?

Wow. gorgeous, and perfect for the architecture. Congrats.

I like the trim. If I were to change it, I'd go with a moss green.

I love the new door, it looks wonderful. I like the trim as is but maybe a change would be nice for you. The Moss Green that Tib posted is lovely. I could totally see it on your home.

Door looks beautiful! I would keep same color trim.

I love that color, Tibbrix, but I'm inclined to keep the existing trim color as long it works with the new look. I'm kind of relieved to hear some confirmation that it does-- it's one less decision to make.

That looks great! I'd keep the trim as it is because to me it makes the whole entrance look larger and more grand.

Really pretty! Would you mind saying where you got that?

without seeing the house in toto ...

i think the eaves/cieling should stay brown to match the house...

but the side walls in the dark brown ... make it look cave like ...

but i dont know about the grey green...

but it did make me look to the stone work ... and wonder how playing off those grays ... would incorporate the walkway ... into the entry way ..

the green... and i understand its not much green ... would be adding another color ... instead of harmonizing.. what is there ..

if you played off the brickwork .. i think is would swallow the door with color ... as compared to the way it 'pops' now ...

FSachs, the door is from Rogue Valley Door.

Love the door and trim it's perfect as is. I do agree that the side walls dark dark paint is closing it in, that part could go lighter.

Lovely! Is that Emtek hardware? I'm not sure what the trim is, in question! Lower lighter piece? I'd try to match the door color.
