A colourful front door is perhaps one of the warmest greetings for visitors to your home. Here’s an easy guide on how to find your perfect match for your front door to greet your street. Colours featured: Dulux Punakaiki and Haast.
What does your front door say about you?
Your front door is the first and last thing guests to your home will see. But when there are literally thousands of colours to choose from, how do you know which is right for you? Let’s dig a little deeper so you can put your best foot forward with a front door that sets the scene for the entire home.
If subtlety is your aim, steer away from this end of the colour spectrum.
A red front door makes a bold statement that demands attention. Bright, vibrant, and inviting — your red front door will have all the neighbours talking.
If the brighter shades are a little outside your personal palette, look to deeper hues in rust, burgundy, or maroon for a more reserved effect.
Perfect for the seaside, or a cityscape that reminds you of summer days, a glance at this door is sure to send your blues away.
Look to vibrant electric blues to make a stunning contrast against white walls, or introduce grey-blues for a warm welcoming entrance.
Pretty in pink
The colour of romance, a pink front door is guaranteed to have your smile stretched ear to ear.
Recreate the famous doors of London in soft pastels and blush tones, or make a statement with rich fuchsia or hot pink.
Connect your house to nature with a pop of green right at the entry.
From deep emeralds and muted khaki through to bright limes and apple greens, there’s sure to be hue for you.
