Having a hard time choosing a colour for your new front door? Let us help!
Choosing a front door colour for your home can be one of the most challenging decisions. However, deciding on a colour for your home’s front door can be even more difficult. Your door is the first thing your guest sees – so it’s got to impress. Plus, once you choose it, there’s no going back! (Well, unless you decide to repaint it, who wants to do that!)
There are multiple factors to consider when picking a front door colour. Such as, does the chosen colour match the styles and features of your property? Is it going to look good all year round? Will it continue to look timeless and on-trend?
For these reasons, when we are working with customers, we can tell customers to take their time to consider what colour to have their new door — sometimes asking us what option to go for!
Sadly, we can’t pick for you; it is all down to you! But, to help you understand the importance of home exterior colours and assist you in finding the perfect colour for your door, we have researched the psychology behind some of our favourite shades and what is trending in 2022!
So, what does your colour selection indicate, and how can we introduce this into your new home improvements? Let us tell you…
What is the most popular front door colour?
Black is the most popular front door colour for 2022, according to Homes and Gardens. It isn’t surprising to us as, in recent years, black has become increasingly popular. It has become a ‘go-to’ colour for many clients of ours! In fact, it’s not just our customers who think so!
The options for black are limitless! Modern or traditional, contemporary or classic – you can style this shade any way you like. Plus, have you ever thought about black windows or a conservatory…?
If black doesn’t take your fancy, how about grey?
Is grey the new black? Yes, we know it is a bold statement. However, recent home improvement styles have demonstrated that this could be the case, and potentially the go-to colour for 2023.
Grey is an on-trend colour, and it’s here to stay. Here at DJL UK, we have seen a rise in the demand for this shade, and we can see why!
Despite the word “grey” possibly symbolising something drab or sad – as a colour, it is more often than not seen as contemporary and practical. Grey offers that same timelessness, sophistication and appeal as black; however, it also provides a soothing muted effect that works with numerous other colours.
It’s not all black and grey!
Although black and grey are proving to be immensely popular this year, there is a lot to be said for adding a bit of colour to the exterior of your home. Homeowners can now choose to be bold by opting for coloured uPVC or bright composites, or either adds something subtle. Whichever way, colours are a fantastic way to transform your property from drab to fab!
Brighten up with the colour with blue.
Did you know that blue is one of the most popular choices across the board for both men and women? Interesting eh!
Blue is renowned as being the most popular colours overall. Why? Well, in regards to psychology, blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed – and as stated, it has equal appeal to both men and women.
If you hadn’t noticed, DJL UK likes the colour blue! We have a variety of shades of blue. If you are after something classy to make a grand statement, navy blue is a perfect choice. Regardless of your style of property, the high-pigmented colour will complement the exterior of your home.
But, if you are after something more calming and relaxing, maybe our Duck Egg Blue shade is right up your street. Offering a clean and crisp entrance for any visitor.
So, if blue is your favourite colour – we are sure to have the right shade for you.
Make your neighbours Green with envy.
Green. Represents balance, growth, wealth and wisdom. Plus, according to science, in the presence of green, our muscles become more relaxed, and blood histamine levels increase – leading to a decrease in allergy symptoms! Who knew! Therefore, making green a calming and stress-relieving shade.
Green is an upcoming colour in home improvements due to its calming nature. Here at DJL UK, we are witnessing more and more customers opting for Chartwell Green front doors (with some even choosing it for their windows, too!). For those looking for a colour that will make an impact but still be understated and modern – Green is the shade for you.
Leave a long-lasting impression with purple.
Not often seen as a front door shade, purple is a unique colour that is making its mark within home improvement trends. Just like this Aubergine shade with DJL UK, opting for a purple composite represents wealth, honour and royalty. If purple is good enough for the Queen, it’s good enough for our clients!
Purple is a versatile colour that adds that ‘pop’ of lively energy to any home, whether traditional or contemporary. An elegant coloured front door colour and as a result of being a vibrant shade, the purple draw visitors to your door from the contrasting colours of your property’s exterior.
Go bold and choose purple if you’re ready to make a new statement with your front door. Go on; you know you want to!
Finally, make a bright, bold impact with red.
Known as the colour of extremes – red offers a powerful statement to your entryway of your home. The colour of love, danger and adventure (and Christmas), according to experts, red also means hospitality and a warm welcome! Additionally, it is said to drive evil forces away and promote positive energy. Therefore by choosing a red front door, you can allow yourself to transform the exterior of your property by adding a bright colour while bringing cheerfulness to your house. In Chinese culture red door suggests good fortune and luck, so if you’re feeling in some need of luck what a look at our red doors.
However, if bright red is too risky for you, maybe a muted mahogany door could be an excellent alternative…
The colour fun doesn’t just stop with front doors! What about for windows?
Home exterior colours don’t have to be limited to front doors – oh no! Windows are an excellent way to add moments of colour without going overboard! Matching your door to your windows creates a beautiful aesthetic which increases your property’s ‘wow’ factor.
Colour trends, of course, come and go, so when choosing the right shade for your door (or even window), it is essential for you to not only opt for a shade that depicts your personality and suits your property but also will remain elegant and timeless for you.
At DJL UK, we offer a stunning range of colours for doors, windows and even conservatories. Therefore, allowing you to showcase personality and style while providing a great first impression. So get in touch!
