Posted by Sarah Mueller on November 20, 2017 in Replacement Entry Doors
Teal is a color that can be interpreted as calming, happy, and welcoming. Reminiscent of pristine caribbean ocean water, the color teal or turquoise may even have a positive impact on your mood. Although a traditional color, it’s anything but boring; and as a statement front door color, teal can be downright unexpected.
Teal front doors can complement both historic and modern houses. It makes a great front door color for brick houses as it provides a contrast without looking out of place. Consider a contrasting color - like black or white - for moulding or sidelights to provide additional interest.

5 Reasons to Choose a Teal Front Door:
1 - A pop of color
Teal colored front doors add a pop of color - and happiness. According to color psychology, turquoise is a color that balances blue, green, and yellow, but can also represent emotional balance, giving a feeling of calmness and peace.
2 - Add contrast
Teal front doors look great with contrasting colors like black or white and can also look great with a traditional red brick exterior as shown in this home in Aledo, TX.

4 - Feature your door's detail
