Your house, three ways: visualise your exterior paint project with these colour combos

Take the stress out of picking your exterior masonry, wood and front door combinations with our simple guide to colour-matching.


 

Take your cue from natural hues

Look to nature for inspiration – white clouds, blue rivers and dusky sand tones complement each other rather well, don’t you think? Replicate this harmonious play of colours with your masonry and trim.

 

Start with a classic off-white, Ashen White, on your masonry for a crisp, sophisticated look. Create a bold focal point and paint your front door in elegant Oxford Blue. Use Dulux Weathershield Quick Dry Satin on your exterior wood and metal surfaces for protection that lasts for up to 10 years. Featuring a stylish mid-sheen finish, your front door and trim will age beautifully, protected by advanced Weathershield technology.

 

Coordinate by painting your window frames in the same shade of Oxford Blue to unify your features. Introduce character with a rich Celtic Cream along your window frames. Its mustard undertone will add warmth to your house against a backdrop of blue (or grey) skies.

Make a statement with bright detailing

Concrete Grey on masonry makes for a subtle and stylish contrast to beautiful statement colours on your front door, like luxurious Royal Berry from the Dulux Weathershield High Gloss palette. Use Dove Slate, available in Dulux Weathershield Quick Dry Satin, in a mid-sheen finish, to highlight trim features and achieve that on-trend tone-on-tone look. Paint your masonry in Dulux Weathershield Ultimate Protection with a built-in primer for 15 years of guaranteed protection against damaging alkali salts, so your house will look its best for even longer.

Create a warm welcome with natural tones

Highlight your home’s features in complementary tonal combinations. You can find your perfect match with a range of colours from our MixLab service like Soft Stone – a muted shade with red undertones. Pops of pale creams like Cream Tea on window frames add a subtle brightness that balances the warmth of red hues.

 

Paint your front door in Green Glade for a fresh take on natural colours. The olive tint hints at a Mediterranean escape – think vibrant salads with family under the sun, making for an inviting entrance all year-round.
