Our front doors show our personality to the whole world. They are often the first impression that is given of the house and can often lead people to expect what they’re going to find in the one they’re inside. Think about it, how many times have you knocked on someone’s front door and, without thinking about it, conjured up an image of what it is like to be inside. How different is the image of a large solid black door from a pale green country style door with a little heart-shaped window? It is not often thought about in that much detail by homeowners. Still, getting the front door right is important if you’re looking to provide positive first impressions to the world outside that also expresses your personality. As a result, it is important to have a good idea of the different colour options available for front doors and what other homeowners, on the whole, are opting for. Chigwell Window Centre offers a plethora of colours for all of our doors, whether they be uPVC, aluminium or composite. In aiding our customers with choosing the right front door colour for them, we have compiled a list of the most popular front door colours areas for 2022!
It would seem that the tradition is still very much in fashion, with many homeowners choosing to go for woodgrain finishes for their front doors. Whether it be a light oak colour or deep mahogany, this traditional heritage look is not getting left behind as the more modern colours enter the market. Homeowners love the country aesthetic that it gives their homes and provides a friendly and nostalgic entranceway for their friends and family. Luckily, with modern innovations, homeowners no longer need to worry about the problems of timber doors from yesteryear. uPVC front doors from Chigwell are available in various woodgrain finishes to retain that classic look whilst also having top-level durability, thermal efficiency and weather resistance.
As solid colours go, red has always been popular, and it continues to be timeless coming into the 2020s. Red front doors are exceptionally statement worthy and really burst out off the pavement to onlookers and visitors alike. Red front doors shout personality and are absolutely for the homeowner who really wants to make a statement with the first impression of their home. Red goes very well with red-bricked buildings, as most warmer colours do, and so is an excellent choice for those homes. Our uPVC, aluminium and composite doors are available in red just as they are available in any RAL colour!
Various shades of blue have also made an entrance to the front door conversation in the last few years. For the most part, deeper navy blues tend to be the go-to choice and match well with white plastered home exteriors. We have seen many lighter blues, though, that also fit with this aesthetic. The lighter blues tend to be more subdued and don’t pop out of the building quite as much, so for the more subtle homeowner, the lighter blue is probably the way to go. Blue communicates peace and tranquillity and expresses the same amount of personality as red but from a completely different angle. Blues are the way to go for homeowners wanting to communicate calmness to their visitors.
Green has also made an appearance but not quite to the extent red and blue have. Pale greens are very popular with country cottages with a lot of foliage in their front gardens, so the door blends the home naturally into the garden, giving off an earthy impression. Green communicates thoughts of nature, so, understandably, it is most popular with country cottages and the like. However, a dark green door in a city is still rare enough to impress passersby and onlookers. It, therefore, is an excellent choice for the homeowner who wants to retain subtlety and communicate a sense of individuality.
By far the most popular front door colour at the moment though is a grey or black front door. With the rise of critall like interior and exterior design, the steel looking features are on-trend for the 2020s. Darker greys and blacks communicate a level of sophistication that you don’t get with other colours or even the traditional heritage wood-like looks. It’s difficult to see the fascination with grey ending soon in the home design market with minimalism similarly on the rise globally as a trend across all industries. Chigwell Window Centre are proud to say we manufacture and provide grey doors to any shade and specification!
