Introducing colour into the home is any architect’s dream.

Colour is a clever way to send a message about your personality, and as entrance doors set the tone for the rest of your home, choosing a coloured front door can be a powerful way to create fantastic kerb appeal.

While there are a multitude of different colours to choose from, it’s easy to revert back to the traditional favourites: white, red, green or blue.

Our two ranges of composite entrance doors, Solidor doors and Bowalker composite doors, feature a selection of stunning colours, from classic to contemporary, pretty to powerful and striking to stylish.

A lot of the homes we work on in Hove want a door that adds exciting colour to their property and makes an entrance no one will forget, which is why we have more than 30 door colours to choose from.

We’ve put together a guide to help you decide which colour would be best for you.

Be bold

If you’d like to reflect your bold and bright personality on your front door, statement shades such as Peacock Blue, Berry Red, Rich Aubergine and French Blue are ideal.

They add an eye-catching pop of colour immediately to anyone who passes by, and will make your home stand out on your street, telling the world that someone full of life lives here. This is perfect if you love to entertain in your home.

It also sets the tone of your interior, which is great if your home is full of exuberant colours and décor.

Timeless classics

Perhaps you’re more of a classic soul? If you love the traditional things in life, a timeless entrance door will be the best fit for you.

A lot of the composite entrance doors in Hove are in a time-honoured style, as it’s what suits most homes.

Colours like Chartwell Green, Red, Gothic Black, Derwent Blue and Heritage Green will last the test of time and show people that you value the eternal beauty of things. Classic shades such as these also complement any style of décor and external finishes, from traditional brick to a modern render.

Warm and inviting

Is your home the family meeting point, where you often host the Sunday roasts and welcome your family and friends?

To reflect the inviting nature of your family home, warm and natural door colours, such as Golden Oak, Irish Oak, Golden Sand, Walnut, Rosewood and Cream, are the perfect choice.

Woodgrain colour options are a great alternative to timber front doors to reflect a soft yet strong personality, complementing French Country, authentic interiors.

Clean and crisp

If you prefer the minimalist aesthetic, simple and stylish door colours are the best option.

Light colours such as Painswick and White, and dark shades like Schwarzbraun and Gothic Black, add clean, crisp style in a subtle yet sophisticated way.

This is ideal if you like white spaces or black accents to introduce colour.

Stylish and ahead of the trend
