27 Oct New trends in colours for single and multiple letterboxes
DON’T LET YOUR LETTERBOX GET OUT OF FASHION!
The main purpose of a letterbox is to receive post and to guarantee privacy. In addiction to it, single and multiple letterboxes are also part and parcel of your home’s project, of its architectural and aesthetic identity. The letterbox has by now become a design object, that will draw your guests’ attention, starting from its colour.
The choice of colour is very important indeed to keep pace with new trends, so much so that it is often colours themselves that impose fashion rules.
GOOD OLD DAYS…
In this second half of 2017 green has stolen the scene − a colour representing nature that makes us dream to momentarily get out of everyday traffic and confusion. Therefore, it doesn’t take much to be trendy: an Open-Air modular letterbox painted in RAL 6018 will give a personal touch to your home. Are you feeling uncomfortable in a more and more technological and innovative world? You can choose for your letterbox a shade that makes you feel like living in a house of yesteryear, like RAL 6009 dark green.
But if you’re already focused on the year to come, 2018 will offer a wide range of choices.
To show your personality already at a first glance you can choose for your letterbox a colour that can define your determination. White is the perfect colour for a minimalist style that can make your Open-Air modular letterbox a super elegant “calling card” for your home. Our suggestion for you is RAL 9003 White.
To always keep your letterbox nice and clean you can follow these simple cleaning tips.
COME TO THE “DARK SIDE”
In opposition to white, black is elegant, dramatic and introspective at the same time. It’s not an easy colour to show off, but the result is guaranteed. A RAL 9011 black will create an interesting contrast, inspiring reliability and discrection.
There are colours that never get out of fashion. For example neutral tones, like our silver letterboxes, that gives you complete matching freedom with the walls of your house, the fence of your garden and all the surrounding space. With this colour, standard for every single or multiple letterbox, you play safe!
FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TO (MIND) TRAVEL
An exotic colour can create a warm atmosphere that carries us to far away countries… even remaining at home. The choices that invite us the most to mindtravel towards Marrakesh’s roads or the enchanted places of the Arabian Nights fall on warm browns (e.g. RAL 8007) or a RAL 3032 ruby red. You can have the whole of your modular unit painted, or just opt for coloured letter-flaps or casing; in any case you’ll make your home entrance a one-of-a-kind.
EXUBERANCE AND VIVACITY
Livelier and more outgoing people should opt for bright colours. This 2017 a new colour was introduced by one of the leaders in the graphic industry: Minion yellow. For your letterbox we can recommend you a RAL 1026 bright yellow, or a red or green equally bright (RAL 3024 and 6001). Whoever enters your home will surely be in a good mood!
Choose the colour you like among the whole RAL range and have fun trying out new combinations. The next trend could be the very colour that you choose!
