Q: I live in a flat, which has quite a modern front door. I want to repaint it but am worried about which colour will suit the style of the property best. What would you suggest?

Verity, by email

A: Caroline Vaughan, Marketing Manager and Trend Panel Co-ordinator for Ronseal, has this suggestion…

Dark colours such as black and charcoal grey are a popular trend for external doors at the moment, and they’re ideal for modern doors, creating a sleek, contemporary look. These stunning shades also have the added benefit of helping to hide any dirt and marks, and they really showcase door furniture, so this is also a good opportunity to update the handle, door knocker or number for a fresh new look. Ronseal’s 10-year Weatherproof Wood Paint in grey or black is a good choice and, when used with Ronseal’s Super Flexible Primer & Undercoat, it’s guaranteed to last for 10 years, giving you peace of mind. Both products are quick and easy to apply using a brush or roller, and the Wood Paint costs from around £15.99 per 2.5L.

About Your Home Magazine

We’re halfway through the year now and summer is in full swing, so there’s no better excuse to get out into the garden. In this month’s issue we’ve got lots of great ideas to help make the most of your time outdoors. On page 36 we take a look at this year’s hottest trends for outdoor living. From classic country style to laid-back coastal blues and tropical brights, you’re sure to find a look you love that will help you create your perfect room outdoors. And, if you’re feeling creative, then try your hand at our brilliant upcycling project (p.62) which transforms an unwanted old bed into a gorgeous garden bench, or stitch up a storm and create our beautiful embroidered hanging storage pockets (p.64). If your beds and borders are looking a little lacklustre, then take inspiration from the latest trend from the RHS show gardens – elegant blue and white is the most beautiful colour combination to make your garden look truly stunning this summer (p.114). We’ve also got a simple step-by-step project (pardon the pun) to help you create a set of rustic log steps in your garden (p.66). The warmer weather also means most of us start to hanker after lighter, fresher meals, so we’ve rustled up some super salad recipes in this month’s food section. The roasted sweetcorn and halloumi salad is my favourite. Finally, we’ve also got some truly inspiring makeovers and real reader homes for you to take a peek at. Enjoy!
