Can somene suggest a color of storm door that would go ok with this oak door
that my husband installed? The windows are white double-hung windows. I
was thinking of black, and then painting the shutters to match.
Thanks for any suggestions.
=Nice house. First thing you should do is make sure a storm door can be
used with the fiberglass door. It might trap too much heat and warp the
That said--Are your shutters brown now? They look black in the pic.
the frame of the storm door be consistent with the window frame color
If your shutters are brown now, do they not match the door already?

fiberglass doors should NOT have a storm door on it.
the fiberglass will warp and the seals around the door glass will leak
most mfr's. will not warranty fiberglass doors if a storm door is used.

With that beautiful door I can't see hiding it. If you want to put a storm door
up, get one of the ones that's got the one huge glass panel to it. Since the
usual choice in doors is either white or bronze, I'd pick the bronze.
The glass panel can be swapped out for a screen in temperate weather.
I'd have to be able to see the whole house to really decide on a color
-- there are three separate colors shown just in this picture and
there's not enough perspective to judge overall...
As for the door itself, if use a storm I'd go for the full pane glass,
but might as well make it oak as well and match the stain as nearly as
can. The storm won't stick out nearly as much that was as would the
painted (whatever the color)...
imo, ymmv, $0.02, etc., etc., ...

great. Go to the link and click on the colors to see a sample:
