Front doors are the first thing someone sees of your home, make a good first impression with Dulux's attention grabbing front door ideas. Read more.


With brighter days now here to stay, there’s no better time to revive your exterior. But where do you begin?


Your front door is your home’s first impression. It’s the initial touch point for your guests and sets the tone for the rest of your home. So, whether you’re putting your home on the market, or simply tired of peeling paint, sprucing up your front door is a sensible place to start.


With our front door ideas and Dulux Weathershield colours, you can make your front door the centre of attention in just two days.


What colour should you paint your front door?  

The colour of your door will come down to the latest front door colour ideas and trends, but there are other factors to consider before you pick up your paint brush.


Your choice will depend on the style of your home. Try more traditional colour schemes for period homes, such as Victorian or 1930s houses, in order to complement the building’s original features. Or if you live in a more modern home, like a 1960s house or new build, look to contemporary colours for exterior door paint ideas.


The colour of your front door should complement your greenery. So, consider your front garden and surrounding neighbourhood too – or even read up on front door porch ideas.


Takeaway tip: keep pathways, steps and open porches clutter-free. You could also invest in freshening up your door accessories with the use of chrome letterboxes and doorknobs.


4 exterior front door colour ideas to inspire your weekend Project

With so many identical looking houses on your street, a splash of colour on your front door will really make your home the centre of attention.


In the Dulux Weathershield range, you’ll find a collection of inviting shades, from neutral greys to soft blues. Below, are four of our favourite exterior door paint ideas and trends for you to explore.


Dark, rich shades

If you’re feeling a little adventurous, take a step away from neutrals like grey and black. Instead paint your front door in deep, darker colours like Indigo Shade. Whilst the colour reflects a contemporary feel, it works well with traditional properties and will look impressive to any passer-by.


Bright, bold hues

Let your front door do the talking with Teal Façade. This fun, vibrant aqua hue will make a bold statement on your street and show off your personality to those who visit.

Nature-infused greens

Enhance your home’s exterior with natural shades like Green Glade. This heritage shade of green will not only blend beautifully with the surrounding foliage, but create a sense of calm to anyone entering your home. Green Glade is one of the Dulux Weathershield Multi Surface Quicky Dry Satin products, which can be used on a uPVC front door.

Soft, pretty pastels

Pastels are a big trend this season, many of which are inspired by the sugary shades of ice cream. Why not give the trend a try by painting your front door with fun and friendly Lavender Quartz? You’ll create the perfect summer feel on your doorstep.
