4 Autumn Colour Trends to Transform Your Door This Season

Published: 31st October 2023

As autumn approaches, the changing leaves and cooler temperatures inspire us to bring warmth and cosiness into our homes. One of the most impactful yet simple ways to achieve this is by transforming your front door with a fresh colour palette.

In this blog post, we’ll look at the top 4 autumn colours to consider if you’re buying a new composite door this season, from calming greens to warm yellows and reds to soft greys, and how a new front door colour can give your home a new look this autumn.


Calming Green

Green front doors for autumn offer a harmonious connection to the seasonal transformation of nature. The deep and earthy greens found in autumn foliage can be beautifully mirrored in your choice of a front door colour, and according to trend forecasting organisation WGSN, earthy greens such as Sage Green or Chartwell Green are one of the Autumn/Winter colour trends for 2023.

A calming and tranquil colour, green provides a serene and organic touch to your door and there’s no wonder why this door colour has remained a popular choice for years.

A Chartwell green door is a distinctive and elegant choice for homeowners seeking a touch of classic sophistication. This shade, often described as a soft, muted green with subtle grey undertones complements all styles of homes and is not only a popular colour this autumn but a versatile colour that works all year round.

Warm Yellow

Another Autumn/Winter door colour trend is the classic yellow door. A yellow front door is a bold and inviting choice that can instantly brighten up your home. This sunny and cheerful colour represents optimism and warmth, making it an excellent way to greet visitors and create a memorable first impression.

Whether painted in a soft pastel shade or a vibrant, attention-grabbing yellow such as our Buttercup Yellow or a more muted tone such as our Sand Yellow, a yellow door can stand out as a focal point against a more neutral exterior or complement a colourful and vibrant overall design. Symbolically, a yellow door is often associated with positivity and openness, signalling a welcoming and vibrant personality behind it. It’s a simple yet effective way to infuse a burst of energy and personality into any entrance, making your home feel all the more inviting.

Soft Greys

Grey front doors are a perfect choice for autumn, echoing the muted and earthy tones of the season. The cool, neutral shade of grey exudes sophistication and pairs beautifully with the rich and warm colours of fall foliage. A grey front door can serve as an elegant backdrop for autumn wreaths, pumpkins, and other seasonal decorations, allowing these elements to stand out in contrast.

Whether in a cool, silvery grey such as our Silk Grey, a warm grey like our Goosewing Grey, or a darker, more dramatic shade such as Anthracite Grey or Basalt Grey, grey front doors provide a timeless and versatile option for adding a touch of autumn charm to your home’s exterior.

The final popular door colour trend this autumn is red. Red is a signature autumnal colour, and a red front door creates a warm and luxurious feel to your home. Whether you’re looking for a classic look with our standard Red, or a deeper, more muted colour such as our Mixed Berry, a red door is the perfect door colour choice this season.

Red not only acts as a perfect backdrop for any autumnal décor, but can also seamlessly transform into the festive season, making it a very versatile door colour choice.
