The six best front door colours

The front of your home is the first part of the property anyone visiting will see, which is why it’s important to always have it looking its best.

There are a number of ways to do this, such as repainting the exterior, cleaning your driveway, improving your front garden and considering a new front door.

It’s the front door we’ll discuss here, but not only can you enjoy aesthetic appeal, but there are a number of added benefits such as energy efficiency and security all tied into a front door.

With the front door you could even opt to change the colour so it stands out from the crowd. Take a look at the six best colours we think will transform your home’s appeal.

1. Red:

The bold appeal of red is becoming extremely popular and really you can’t go wrong. If your home is painted white, blue or grey then the red front door creates an even better appeal. To complete the look, opt for a high gloss finish to make it eye-catching.

2. Indigo:

With indigo you’ll enjoy a colour that’s not particularly common around the UK, but not because it’s anything to be avoided. What we absolutely love is the way the front door shade will change at different times of the day, from morning to night. Indigo creates a dramatic and dark appeal that’s perfect with white frames.

3. Orange:

As you would expect, orange creates a bold appeal that is unmatched by any other colour in this respect. It’s eye-catching and will draw people to your home. Darker frames will also make the colour stand out even more, so certainly consider this look.

4. Black:

Whilst it’s true black is just as popular as white when it comes to front doors, a freshly painted black door commands attention. Just think about the iconic No. 10 Downing Street to get an idea of how memorable a black front door really is. The good thing about black also, is it’ll match with almost any exterior style.

5. Lime Green:

Want people to look twice when they pass your home? Then be bold and choose a lime green colour from the front of your property. Whilst we admit it might not be for everyone, you should definitely consider this as something that’ll set your home apart from the crowd.

6. Yellow:

Rejuvenate your home with yellow to find a colour that’ll brighten your evening every time you arrive home after work. It’s something different and will really add sparkle to your property’s kerb appeal.
