You don’t need to go bright and colourful to be bold. In fact, if brighter tones aren’t your style, why not consider a more sophisticated statement with classic blacks, navy blues, greys, or rich and natural wood tones? It’s the perfect solution if you’re looking to create a look that offers a little more moodiness and charm, and not to mention, a richly toned dark hue painted on your home’s front door makes for a very polished and classy look.
To help you modernise your facade with a stylish new bespoke front door colour, we thought we’d compile 5 of our favourite colours for creating a striking and timeless design for your home. It’s proof that you don’t need to go bright to go bold, or to give your home an entirely new look.
Think about that little black dress, but instead, flaunt it on your home’s exterior. There is not a single colour combination more versatile than a classic polished black. This beautiful high-impact basic of a colour works great with almost any exterior materials, whether it’s coupled with white brick, red brick, wood tones, panels and more. We just love how it creates a dramatic curb appeal, drawing eyes in as they pass by.
You can’t go wrong with grey, and especially a darker and deeper grey tone, because it creates such a sophisticated and timeless look. It’s also a versatile choice as it suits more traditional and period properties as well as modern designs – and it’s also an all-year-round favourite, creating wonderful winter vibes later in the year, while beautifully complemented with lights and greenery throughout the summer.
A darker green tone like olive green is a saviour of style and class when it comes to a home’s exterior, preventing it from fading away into the background. Allow it to pop with white trims and other elements to complement to complete the aesthetic – and use these tricks to your advantage throughout both summer and winter months.
An all-round win-win, a beautiful maroon paint makes for a flashy colour without the overwhelming brightness of other red tones. When surrounded by a light trim colour and complementing window frames and accents, a maroon door will create a distinguishing look to the exterior of your home, and drum up some serious curb appeal.
A crowd-favourite, navy blue always makes a striking addition to the front exterior of your home. A lovely muted navy immediately draws eyes to that delicate hue of colour, without creating too much of a ‘serious’ look. Not to mention, it works well with endless exterior designs and materials.
Choosing the right door colour can make all the difference, transforming a basic home exterior to a striking entranceway and focal point. Play around with deep and rich dark-coloured tones, and add a pop of colour with the symmetrical placement of planters, lighting, and hardware to give your home a balanced, eye-catching appeal.
