Front Door Colours

We can paint your front door any colour you like

We have quite a wide range of colours now that we know work on certain period front doors. For an external door the best paint to use is Dulux Weathershield, it’s flexible, very durable and this is what we use on all of our doors. There’s no limit to the colour so let your imagination run wild.


Choose a colour for your front door

When choosing your colour I’ll show you blocks of wood, painted in the colours that we’ve used already, so you can see what they look like in situ near the brickwork, steps – even the plants will make a colour look different on someone else’s front door.

You can of course choose your own colour but we won’t just accept a swatch or a code, we’ll work with you to make sure the finished colour is just right for you. Unfortunately, water-based paint like Farrow & Ball can only be used when your door is under a porch, out of the rain, but we often have Dulux match their colours.

“With the brush we merely tint, while the imagination alone produces colour.”

Theodore Gericault

Sunlight affects a front door

If your door is exposed to sunlight and the weather we will always recommend that it is a pale colour because the heat affects the structure of the wood. We have developed a number of paler colours like Air Force Blue and our well loved Olive, take a look at our Gallery for more examples.

We can also paint your door white inside to match other woodwork – but then again, your door won’t just be ‘other woodwork’!
