23 Feb How to get creative with colour
Aluminium offers homeowners, designers and architects the flexibility to get creative with colour.
Colour can be used to blend new elements such as lift and slide doors in to an existing building or to a surrounding. It is a great tool when being sympathetic to existing period features or carry a theme from garden to building façade.
Colour can also be used to add vibrancy or character to a building. The juxtaposition between clean lines and coloured windows and doors can look contemporary and certainly makes a statement.
Using genuine Reynaers aluminium profile VueLite has the option of also offering dual colour. This allows you to choose a colour for the exterior and a colour for the interior that compliments your interior design.
Since its creation in 1927 by the German Reichs-Ausschuß für Lieferbedingungen und Gütesicherung (State Commission for Delivery Terms and Quality Assurance) The RAL colour standard has been used across Europe and the wider world as a way of standardising colour. RAL now includes over 450 different shades and finishes including metallic, matt or gloss.
Using these RAL colours, or even a special low maintenance and scratch resistant Coatex finish there is certainly scope to be individual.
Handles, hinges and other accessories can also be colour coded in exactly the same colour as your aluminium doors.
