Spring is the season for a fresh start. March is when we see the return of green shoots, birdsong and the smell of freshly cut grass — things that many of us welcome with open arms after a long, drawn-out winter.
These new sights, sounds, smells and fresh air are invigorating. They make us optimistic, creative and enthusiastic. We want to embrace the season and reflect it in our homes and gardens. Which is why spring cleaning so often ends up becoming a spring makeover.
So, in the spirit of using this time of year to give your home a fresh look for a new season, we’ve brought together a collection of colours and ideas in the palette of spring. Use these to inspire your exterior transformation.
To make an eye-catching statement, the most obvious place to embrace spring colours is with your entrance door.
Your door is the first thing people see when approaching your house. Using bold spring colours injects personality and creates a warm first impression.
Take this bold yellow Davenport door for example, with its spring-themed sunrise led window design.
Or this bolection-moulded Glenmore door in pink, which instantly transforms the front of its period property.
Or, as an example of how well pastel colours work, this Lake Edward Manhattan door, which also embraces the season by letting the piercing spring sunlight pour in through the entrance.
Windows aren’t the first place you think of adding colour to the outside of your home. This is largely due to the wide use of PVC frames making white the default colour for windows.
And that’s precisely why you should consider mixing things up. After all, what better way to make your home stand out than with colour-finished frames in a street of white?
The great thing about the wooden frames we offer is that they can be finished in a wide range of colours. What’s more, should you decide to freshen things up again in a few years, they can be redecorated with a single coat or easily be repainted in a different colour.
In recent years, we’ve seen more customers experimenting with vibrantly coloured windows. Like these dark green casement window frames.
Or these more understated, olive frames that give this customer’s home a contemporary feel.
Colours can also be extended to outdoor living, where verandas can be finished to complement the surroundings of your spring garden, whilst adding a freshness that benefits your outdoor space all year round.
For inspiration, look at how this pastel olive Stapylton veranda complements the greens of the lawn and trees in this garden.
And how the striking bold colour of this Californian Lifestyle Veranda adds a contemporary look to this property.
However and wherever you choose to give your home a spring makeover, opting for warm, personality-filled colours can instantly breathe fresh life into your property.
All of our entrance doors, casement windows and Californian verandas can be custom-finished in any colour from the spring palette or any other premium finish from over 150 choices, giving your home a freshness that matches the season.

A veranda can add so much to a property.

Thanks so much for excellent service, so happy with new door, it’s exactly how I wanted it to look . Everyone at ERW was so helpful and informative from start to finish, I will definitely recommend to all friends and family.
ERW has been a major contributor in improving the physical appearance and energy conservation in our property which sits in the middle of Stokesley’s conservation area. In four phases of design and installation since early 2018 you have helped transform our property with complete distinction.
From assistance given to lodging planning applications with Hambleton District Council through advice on window design and final installation, I can give no higher praise than commending ERW on every aspect of installation.
I first visited your showroom and workshop in the Autumn of 2017 and was impressed with the factory tour afforded me by Kirsty Semark (Customer Service Supervisor). I was convinced that ERW could provide the solution to upgrading our ageing timber windows and appreciate the help and courtesy extended from you and all your staff – many of whom I have met during our four phases of installation.
The very recent installation of a new ‘Eton’ front door enhances the front elevation with perfection.
Please convey our sincere thanks to everyone involved with the workmanship, installation and administration.
Mr U, Stokesley
We are delighted with the product supplied. The leaded windows look really good and very much in character with the house and with the previous windows. The installation team have been very helpful and informative throughout and are a credit to your company. An excellent job and done exactly as per your contract program (which makes a nice change from some of the builders we have used in the past!). Thank you.
Mr & Mrs D, Stockton on Tees
We were delighted with the service offered by all members of the ERW team – helpful, patient, professional and courteous. Even though the windows were not the cheapest we are very happy with them. Well Done!
