Architect, property expert and television host George Clarke has revealed the top 10 front door colour trends for 2017 and gives some great tips on how to enhance your kerb appeal.
Deciding on a colour for your front door can be a difficult choice to make but one that can make a significant effect on the appearance of your entrance.
If you’re having a difficult time making a decision, property expert George Clarke has recently revealed the most popular front door colours for 2017, based on purchasing habits over the past five months.
As ambassador for composite door company True or, George Clarke says you can be trendy by picking from one of the following colours for your front door:
- Jet black
- Steel blue
- Pine green
- Crisp white
- Bright yellow
- Cobalt blue
- Primrose yellow
- Duck egg blue
- Light violet
Mr Clarke went on to say:
“Your front door is the face of your home - it's the first thing people see, so don't follow the crowd, design your own and really go to town,' says George. 'With your front door you have more freedom to express yourself, perhaps picking a colour that you wouldn't normally choose for your interior walls. Changing the front door is a quick win but a real game changer in terms of how people perceive you and your home.”
Adding further advice to upgrade the appearance at the front of your home, George gave the following advice:
1. Creative colour
Strong, bright colours stand out but make sure to pick one that complements your house as well as your own personal style. For those not feeling so brave, black and darker shades of blue are safe choices.
2. Clean lines
Don’t overdo it – keep the front of your home simple and symmetrical. Split the plants out equally on either side of your entrance, whilst any outdoor lighting usually looks better in pairs.
3. Flower power
You can enhance the entrance of your home with stylish hanging baskets, planters, window boxes etc. Using flowers and shrubs often complements the colour and style of your front door also.
4. Keep it clutter-free
Keep your doors, pathways, steps and open porches clean. Similarly, if you have a doormat – keep that free from dirt, leaves and other pieces of debris.
5. The details make the difference
Letterboxes, doorknobs, knockers and other door accessories are a good investment. Stick to high quality and door furniture that blends the style and age of your property.
