You might not be aware of this, but your front door is the starting point for a person’s perception of your house. The style, colour, and condition of your front door gets noticed and sets the tone for your home.
So, which colour is the best colour for a front door? This largely comes down to taste, but there are 6 colours where you really can’t go wrong:
Black is the most popular colour for a front door today because it blends into any environment. From new build estates to listed buildings, black helps dress up a house and it can make a cheap door look expensive.
White is the second most popular colour for a front door today, but only because most UPVC is white. UPVC is an inexpensive material to produce and the doors are cheap, which is why most new builds have them.
Grey has seen its popularity rise considerably over the last few years because it is softer than black and more luxurious than white. Light and dark greys are popular, with anthracite grey being the most popular with our customers.
Red is considered to be a character colour for a front door because it contrasts with most stone and brickwork. Red is a historically popular colour that has a welcoming energy that black and white doors cannot match.
Green is a popular colour for a front door in rural areas and cottages. Its popularity stems from the colour green fitting in with nature and feeling more organic than black and white. It’s a good choice in the countryside.
Blue has fallen out of fashion for front doors, but the right shade of blue can add class, quality and character to a property. Navy blue is a good choice, and pastel blues can soften the exterior appearance of any home.
And the winner is….
Grey is a neutral colour that suits every kind of house. Grey also spans a huge colour gamut, with light and dark greys offering a very different look. Check out ‘RAL 7016 anthracite grey’ if you want a medium colour that blends in.
