Composite front doors are far and away the most popular kind of door currently – selling as many as 5 times any other kind of door.

When it comes to choice of colour, we are now far from just a white door only nation. What better way to spruce up your mood, by adding colour to your home by choosing a brightly coloured front door? Well that’s what our consumers are seen to be commonly doing, with bolder more interesting colours dominating and contrasting with the colour of windows. We still see a range of traditional colours in the top 5, but there seems to be a greater demand for purple and blue, two bold front door colours. Blue is associated with a sense of calm and stability, whilst purple is associated with ambition and power, what better feelings to make a statement?
When making your decision about which colour of door, you may also want to consider other colours and shades that are prevalent on your property. Think about the bricks your property has, the existing windows and whether you have a lush green lawn at the front or a darker hard landscaped surface. Maybe even take into consideration the colour of plants provided these are going to remain a feature and not be dug up next Spring! Then a good starting point is to decide whether you want to blend in with the neighbours or make stand out. Going through this process can very much speed up the decision process or narrow down your selection to a handful of favourites.
