Test the colour first.
It’s a shame that you can’t test drive a pink front door before making a permanent choice but you can take steps to give you more confidence in your choice. Pictures in brochures are not enough to give the right impression.
If you are replacing an old door, buy some pink paint and paint the whole door or even a big patch. It’s only for a few days, so you don’t need to prepare the surface. You just need to be faced with a big patch of pink.
If you can’t paint the old item, just buy some pink wallpaper and create a pink space with that. ‘I Want Wallpaper’ has a wide range of plain colour wallpapers that are not too expensive.
Even if you have to invest £20 to prevent a mistake that costs thousands, it will be worth it. It will also save the stress of worrying about whether you’ve made a mistake while you’re waiting for it to arrive. More importantly, it may give you the confidence to commit to the colour you really want instead of retreating to the safe choice.
Take a picture of your house and then either superimpose the new door on to it if you have computer skills or print the picture and stick a picture of the new door on it.
