Black front doors
Black front doors exude a feeling of elegance and a sublime sense of style. They work exceptionally well on darkly coloured houses, and they can create an interesting visual contrast when combined with white, crème-coloured or pastel-coloured houses. Also, the colour black creates a special ambience when combined with glass and aluminium, both polished or matte. Our powder coated aluminium front doors keep the black colour of your door looking like new for a long time.
Modern minimalism in many variations
Contemporary designs are defined by straight lines and straightforward patterns, which mesh well with black as a primary colour choice. This colour guarantees a certain sense of elegance without feeling pompous, creating a clear, minimalistic experience of quality and workmanship. Also, you can easily integrate contrasting materials into your front door with black as the base colour. Examples for potential design elements are:
- glass inserts
- aluminium handles and handrails
- wooden panels and claddings
- wide sidelights and transom lights
- harmonising natural stone elements

Alternatives to a black front door
In many cases, fans of black front doors are looking to create interesting visual contrasts on more brightly coloured facades. You can easily create such a design concept using less aggressive colour choices to achieve an overall harmonious look.
Anthracite or grey are advantageous and versatile colours. This particular shade of grey looks very elegant and stylish compared to plain grey, and it’s easy to combine with natural materials like wood, with its attractive grain, or bright natural stone.
You can also use more colourful shades to create a more distinct visual accent. For example, you may use dark nuances of red, blue, green, brown, though neutral grey is also a good choice.
There are many different colours to pick from, and which one you choose is entirely up to your personal taste, your home’s architectural style and other factors such as which type of windows you have. Our configurator gives you a good overview of all your choices.
