What's The Best Color For Your Front Door? | Window Repair | Newton | Superior Windowland

North-Facing Front Door
North is associated with the water element, which means black, blue, white, and grey. Wood, Earth, and fire are all weakening/destructive for the water element, so avoid using any of their colors (i.e. green, red, purple, yellow, and pink).

South-Facing Front Door
South is the only direction with the fire element in feng shui, so the best color for this direction is red. You can also try yellow, orange, or even purple, but try to stay away from any earthy colors (like blue, black, or brown).

East-Facing Front Door
If your front door is facing east, your best choices are the wood element colors (green and brown). However, if those colors don’t match the exterior of your home, you can also play around with blue, black, and very light yellows.

West-Facing Front Door
The best colors for a west-facing front door are white, grey, and light yellow — representing the metal element. Colors to avoid include blue, black, red, purple, pink, and orange.

A strong feng shui color will help you attract great energy for your entire home. But first, you have to find and install the perfect door — and that’s where Superior Windowland comes in!

Stained Glass Around The World

Since the Middle Ages, stained glass has left us captivated with its beautiful and intricate colors and designs. From a Gothic chapel in Paris to a concert all in Spain, here’s a look at some of the most beautiful stained glass from around the world!

Stained Glass Around The World | Window Replacement | CT | Superior Windowland

Palau de la Música Catalana - Barcelona, Spain
This steel-framed concert hall has a stained glass skylight, which drops away from the ceiling like an inverted bell. This design is deeply covered in pigmented shades of gold and blue, featuring a three-dimensional depiction of the sun.

Grossmünster Cathedral - Zürich, Switzerland
This cathedral dates back to 1220 and its double towers have become the real landmark of Zürich. The stained glass was created in 1933 by the famous Swiss abstract artist, Augusto Giacometti. Twelve more windows were added by Sigmar Polk in 2009. Some people argue that these windows aren’t truly stained glass, since they’re thin slices of artificially colored agate (a translucent quartz that enriches color). But, the colored light that shines through is still said to be breathtaking.

Sainte-Chapelle - Paris, France
This Gothic chapel was authorized in the 13th century by King Louis IX. The 15 tall windows covering its walls are predominantly dark blue and red, featuring 1,130 prominent figures from the bible. The panels recently went through a $10 million restoration, where the windows were removed and cleaned with lasers!

Blue Mosque - Istanbul, Turkey
This mosque got its name from the blue paint used during its restorations. It has more than 200 stained-glass windows in shared ranging from pale blue to indigo, which end up covering the interior in blue as well.
