Follow our step-by-step guide on how to give your UPVC/ PVC door an instant makeover.

Painting your front door is the most effective way to lift both your own mood and the look of your house. In terms of a project, it’s a lot less time consuming and expensive than re-painting your entire home. Preparation is key; make sure you thoroughly prepare the surface first. Always allow sufficient drying time between coats (check the can for details).
