Surface finishing You can never have too many options when it comes to choosing a colour for your entrance door – which is why we have a large range of colours and finishes that you can choose from. Please ask your manufacturer for a colour brochure to see our full range of powdercoat options, including our range of popular colours. A word to the wise: when you are choosing door colours, always assess swatches in natural light and consider aspect and exposure influence. We have all of the Dulux powdercoat colours on offer, as well as more specific finishes.
