Simply and minimalist front doors are falling out of favour with homeowners. Recently, there has been a push towards more detailed front door designs. Bright colours and inlaid panels are just some of the design features that can really upgrade a profile. Bold moulding is another popular interior design aspect for front doors.

Various shades of blue are becoming more and more popular. Trends are leaning towards elegant navy blues with lighter shades now becoming more popular. Light blue is a popular alternative to white, adding a calm serenity to a property. Pale greens are also a popular colour choice in country cottages, thanks to their earthiness.
If you want a darker front door, try our dark greens. They have a similar feel, only are a little bit more unique. Another popular black alternative is a grey door. Darker greys and blacks are a long lasting front door trend of the last decade, offer homeowners with a slice of sophistication.
Neutral colours like greys and blacks can increase the market value of your home should you ever come to sell it. These colours are often more appealing, because they are minimalist and modern. Brighter colours make a stronger statement, which is very personal to the individual but prospective buyers may struggle to see themselves living in the home.

Consider your brickwork, masonry paint, existing double glazing and front pathway when picking your new front door. Your new front door should seamlessly blend into your home.
It is important, no matter the trends, to pick a front door colour that you love. Don’t just choose one to fit in with everyone else in your area. If a bright colour isn’t your aesthetic preference, you can still create visual impact with contrasting finishes and design details.
