2 Types Of Coloured UPVC Door Finishes
1. Spray Painted UPVC Doors
If you want to change the colour of the UPVC door installed in your house with the least hassles, just spray the frames with a colour of your choice.

2. Laminated Foil Coloured UPVC Doors
The primary difference between Spray Painted UPVC Doors and Laminated Foil Coloured UPVC Doors is the painting process. The latter can be painted only while manufacturing them in the factory. A coloured foil or skin is laid on the surface of the frame and baked. The heat helps to fuse or bond the coloured foil to the frame surface. The foil also gets a texture which can give your UPVC Doors in Cardiff a unique look. Choose the timber-grain effect surface finish you want the doors to look like real timber. Few colour options you can choose from are,
- Chartwell Green
- Dark Red
- Royal Blue
- Olive Green
- Pearl Grey
- Light Oak
- Crown Platinum
If you are not sure which colour will suit your UPVC or Composite Doors in Cardiff, feel free to combine them. Choose one colour for the exterior part of the door and another to paint the interior frame. Generally, people prefer combining a mahogany exterior with a white interior or a cream interior with black or brown exterior. It is always advisable to choose white or light colour interior frame as it helps in giving the optical illusion of the frame being thin.
These being said, it’s time you choose one of the two types of coloured UPVC door finishes and start looking for an experienced company offering it.
