The Best Front Door Colours Dulux
When choosing your front door colour, always opt for the Dulux Weathershield paint. This exterior paint is protected from all the elements that weather can throw at it.
With all weather protection and a long lasting colour, it’s a great paint for front doors, requiring minimal upkeep and maintenance.
Timeless Grey: Garden Grey Dulux
For a neutral shade that boasts versatility and brings an air of timelessness with it, a grey shade such as Garden Grey delivers a beautifully soft hue to the door, ultra chic when combined with darker hues of grey that bring a more defining accent.
In the entryway, add some gorgeous greenery or soft, white roses if you’re feeling fancy for a beautiful mix of tones.
Back To Black: Black Dulux
Dare to go back to black with your door with Black by Dulux. If you want to create a defining door that demands attention, black could be a great choice.
It’s one of the best colours for maintenance too as it doesn’t show dirt, debris or mark as easily as lighter shades do.
For high contrast, pair with a brass knocker and letter box for a pop of warm colour.
Bold & Beautiful: Oxford Blue Dulux
Up the kerb appeal by opting for a bold and beautiful shade like Oxford Blue by Dulux. This midnight blue shade delivers a rich, and sumptuous finish to a front door.
A bold shade like blue is a popular choice for a front door, delivering a bold finish that adds a defining accent to a property, but it’s a little bit warmer than a shade such as black.
Green With Envy: Green Glade Dulux
There’s a lot to love about this tranquil and relaxing shade by Dulux. A fusion of sage green and olive green tones, Green Glade is one of the most perfect colours for a front door.
It sets the tone before you step inside, it’s not too dark, not too light, and the shade helps to create a relaxed and ambient setting.
As demonstrated below, it delivers a beautiful finish and pairs so well with a range of complementary colours.
Rich & Regal: Monarch Dulux
Opt for something a little warmer, and richer for your front door. Monarch could be described as a maroon colour with warm, red undertones.
This versatile colour is a great way to add impact and definition to your property, without going for a dark charcoal and black colour.
Teal Voyage Dulux
A gorgeous teal shade such as Teal Voyage is a perfect way to up your kerb appeal, and bring some warmth to a property too.
This coastal inspired colour pairs beautifully with a range of complementary colours. Freshen up your door for the spring/summer season, and change to a darker hue when the season demands it.
Chic Shadow Dulux
Chic Shadow is one of the newest additions to the Dulux Weathershield range, and a great contender for a front door colour.
It is a perfectly well balanced mid grey shade, it’s not pale grey, nor is it dark grey. This versatile shade keeps an interior light, whilst it brings an air of warmth with it too.
This neutral shade is highly complementary with other colours, and a popular neutral shade for front doors.
What Colours To Avoid On A Front Door?
White is one of the most popular colours of doors in the UK, largely due to the popularity of UPVC doors.
But, when it comes to paint, white and very light neutral colours like cream and mushroom look beautiful, but they should be avoided if you can.
Light colours in a high traffic area like this will show absolutely every single mark, dust, dirt and debris. Which is a little bit inevitable with a door that faces a likely wet and windy winter!
It’s also best to go for something darker than a neutral so minimal maintenance is required, and it doesn’t have to be cleaned everyday to still look presentable.
