How colourful timber front doors can improve your home
It can make your home happier
Colour psychology is a school of thought that suggests the colours which you use to paint your home can have a profound impact on the emotional wellbeing of you and your family. An unspoken language that we all speak without even knowing it, the symbolic meanings of colour are understood by us on a daily basis. For instance, we know to go at traffic lights when we see green. Colour psychology suggests that certain hues will promote particular emotional reactions or responses.
With this in mind, if you want to get your home a feeling of energy and promote movement choose a fiery red or hot orange. On the other hand, if you want to make your home seem more relaxed choose a gentle blue or a deep green.
