For your home to look fashionable, it needs a stylish front door with an on-trend colour. You don’t want any colour clashes, but what you do want is an interesting entrance that really makes your property standout for all the right reasons.
If you live in a new-build, you can often be quite bold with your choice of door colour. A red or poppy red composite door from the Essex Composite Door Shop is an audacious option and will cause quite a stir.
We wouldn’t go for too bold of a colour if you have an old Victorian home for fear of it being too brash. A traditional black or white coloured door would be more suitable.
Homes in a rural setting look best with a front door boasting a more understated finish, one that complements the outdoor scene in these sorts of areas, such as a green or blue.
This though is just a general guide.
You may be more interested in knowing what door colours / trends are and will be most in vogue this spring / summer.
We can tell you that too…
Duck Egg Blue
There are very few UK door suppliers that aren’t supplying their doors in Duck Egg Blue nowadays as interest in this delicate soft greenish blue colour has continued to intensify.
First uncovered in the 18th Century and keenly used in various other elements of home design, it’s a calming, soft and fresh colour and a firm step up from a sedate grey or beige.
A Duck Egg Blue door would look equally at home at a coastal retreat as much as it would at a country cottage.
Make a big entrance
Away from colour, householders are increasingly asking for bigger and taller entrance doors – the bigger the door, the bigger the statement it makes.
A towering door can also be extremely commanding and imposing, which is certain to give thieves second thoughts about attempting to force their way through one.
The days when we would all open our front doors using a key are disappearing thanks to the development of smart locks.
We offer the Yale Conexis Smart Door Lock which enables you to secure and unlock your door without a key. You do this via an app on your smartphone and will never have to worry about losing your door key ever again.
