Swinging Into Style: A Look At Colour Trends For Doors

Nothing can match the classic, timeless style of a handcrafted wooden door. While a rich, dark stain or light, natural finish will add a touch of elegance, it’s a paint colour that’s the key to creating a welcoming entrance. So what colours are trending for doors in 2023? Let’s explore the possibilities that might inspire your next home renovation project.

Front door colour trends for 2023

We know that all trends come and go, and colour trends are no different. Monotone colours have been back in vogue over the last few years, so we’ve seen plenty of blacks, whites, and shades of grey alongside bolder colours. But the predicted trends for 2023 will swing towards more calm, natural, and earthy tones, embracing a softer, lighter, and brighter approach to front-door chic.

Natural Greens

These timeless hues offer a sense of calm and perfectly suit period properties known for their heritage colours and newer, contemporary homes. From deeper, earthier tones for a classic finish to lighter pastel shades for a vibrant splash of cheer, each colour blends with bordering plants, foliage, and surrounding natural features while also making a dignified, understated impact.

Tranquil Blues

The warmer tones of comforting, tranquil blues will be a prominent feature on front doors this year. As a versatile range of colours, these natural blue tones pair nicely with traditional period-style properties, particularly bolder, darker shades, giving them a classic, distinguished finish. But lighter, softer blues can promote a more natural, playful finish, making any house a welcoming home.

Subtle Pinks

A hot pink might not be your first choice of front door colour for your home. But in 2023, we can expect a range of much more understated and serene pinks that will bring a subtle warmth and an elegant finish. While typically suited to more traditional or period properties, a soft tonal pink can suit almost any property, especially when it complements white or lighter exterior colours.

Choosing the right colour for your door

Choosing a front door colour might seem overwhelming given the choice of colours available, but here are three tips to help you narrow it down and choose the right one:

Consider your home’s style

A period property will suit colours that have historical accuracy in keeping with its age, while more modern homes can be more accepting of bolder colours.

Consider your home’s surroundings

Choosing a colour that complements existing features, such as paintwork, windows, plants, and foliage can bring everything together for a coordinated look.

Consider two or three-tone colours

When choosing a door colour that works outside the property, choose a contrasting colour for the door frame for a two-tone finish. You can even select a three-tone finish by choosing a different colour for the inside of the door to match your interior.
