The last couple of years have seen a massive focus on DIY, both for inside and outside the house, largely due to endless lockdowns giving us extra time on our hands. With the world going back to normal, there is sadly less time for redecorating, but the need to revamp the exterior of our houses has not gone away; house prices are more competitive than ever, meaning sellers are forced to do everything they can to add value to their properties and stand out from the competition.
Dulux spoke to property expert Marco Helliwell, Founder and CEO of mypropertyadvice.com, about the importance of following trends when it comes to the valuation of houses. He revealed that keeping up with trends, whether it comes to exterior paint colours, garden furniture, surface materials or front door colours, can help increase your asking price by up to £20k.
With this in mind, Dulux has put together The Great British Exterior Trends Report 2022 to see what the biggest trends and patterns are when it comes to the colour, style and finishes of your walls, front door, garage, windows or garden fence. Dulux has a variety of carefully crafted Weathershield paint colours and finishes, which can help provide the ultimate protection for your home.
To establish what the top home exterior trends of 2022 are, Dulux looked at the most searched-for queries across the nation to understand the favourite exterior trends and how they have grown and changed over the years.
