We currently have a white door with a white frame set into a red brick house. The house is part tiled and has white framed windows. I'm thinking of being daring and having a red door - but what colour will the frame need to be ?

My door is green with white frame, my neighbours were lucky and got a purple one envy

We had a bright red door in the last house, just had a nice white frame around it. We had a red brick house and it looked nice.

I've got a blue door with a white frame, but envy for the purple door grin

Red door, white frame here

But i want DH to paint it fire engine red.

Theres a house around teh corner with a bright pink door. Its FAB, even DH agreed but I think it'd be abit mean on all the testosterone in teh house here.

Dh has just painted our front door lilac (he is very metrosexual)

Ours is bright red, on a white painted Georgian house.

It was yellow when we moved in (bleurgh)

ours is green. we're in a semi. our neighbours had green as well until they repainted it recently. it's the ugliest shade of browny-orange i've ever seen!

Ours is white, both door and frame, with patterned stained glass.

I think having door and frame the same colour looks best, or a white frame. From the lazy POV, white gets black with dust very quickly and looks terrible.

White upvc with decorative glass panel in upper half.

Ours is royal blue with white frame. Want to change it to black though.

I want an Amsterdam green door.

Ours is black, no idea what colour the frame is.

Well we now have a red door with a white frame and it's looking good! Thanks for the help. x
