Red is a confident and striking colour, but also a timeless classic especially for period properties and Georgian townhouses.
Red attracts attention and symbolises strength and power. In Chinese culture, red symbolises joy and good fortune.
In Feng Shui, red doors are a symbol of welcoming energies and good luck and a great colour to paint your front door. However, if you have a north or northwest facing door, you should avoid red as it causes a conflict of fire and metal elements.
A classic red front door suits Georgian period properties as it balances the pale stone. Red also works on traditional properties and new suburban builds. Some contemporary style houses could also suit red as a statement.
Although there are still differences between stories, most cultures see red as a positive colour for a front door.
