Forget the ‘new year, new me’ annual resolution. For 2023 we’re putting our focus on new door trends, and in particular, door colours. Your front door is the focal point of your house and the first thing anyone sees. So, as we enter into a new year, it’s the perfect time to freshen up your door.
Over time trends come and go, and that goes for door colours too. So, in this article, we’re going to cover the top door colour trends for 2023.
The Predicted Trends
Over previous years, timeless colours such as blacks, whites and anthracite grey have been the number one door choices as they can be worked into any season with a little door furniture or accessories. However, 2023 is the year for calming, pastel colours that really make your house stand out.
For many people, the colour green brings a calming, sense of nature and tranquillity. So it’s no surprise to us to hear that it’s at the top of the list for colouring our front doors.
From earthy green tones to pale Chartwell green or even an off-green such as French grey, green is a colour that works across houses of all sizes and styles. From cottage-style doors to Edwardian and Victorian, you’re bound to bring some serenity to your house with this colour.
Pretty in Pink
Pink – a colour that you perhaps wouldn’t usually associate with a front door. However, a pink front door is predicted to be all the rage in 2023. Pink represents nurturing and playfulness, something that having a pink door will definitely bring.
Opting for a soft pink or pastel pink not only carries the playful aspect but in a lot more subtle way. Pairing pink doors with a striking gold door knob and door knocker are the perfect way to finish the look.
One that has stayed a constant door trend throughout the years is the old faithful blue. From pale, pastel blues to rich peacock blues, blue doors ooze tranquillity and prosperity.
Blue is often associated with more period-style houses, however, that’s not to say blue doors can’t be replicated across houses of all ages and sizes.
What to consider when choosing a door colour
Although all of the above can be tempting, it’s important to think about what colour works best for your property type. When choosing a new door colour, take things into consideration such as:
- The era your house was built
From period homes such as Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian to cottages and new build properties, it’s important to consider what door colour was typically associated with that era. That’s not to say you can’t opt for a door colour that was popular in the 1930s on your new build property, but certain colour palettes work better with different style properties.
- The colours surrounding your door
When looking for a new door colour, it’s worth looking around at the surrounding details to check that both the style and colour match. Think about things such as the brick colour, the colour of masonry paint and any windows and porch details. Considering these should help you to pick a door colour suitable to your property.
- Are you moving home in the foreseeable? While a vibrant and eccentric door might suit your personality and your property, this might put off a potential future buyer. If you’re looking to sell your property in the near future, it might be worth holding off on jazzing up your front door until you’ve moved.
