Coloured Doors - An Insta Hit
It’s safe to say that front doors are having a bit of a moment. From towering Victorian townhouses to mid-century semis and clean new builds, design-savvy homeowners are taking advantage of the striking first impression a bright or bold external door can make.
Coloured front doors are one of our favourite current trends. Not only have they been brightening up our homes, but they’ve been brightening up our Instagram feeds too, where a wave of influencers across design, fashion and lifestyle have been snapping themselves silly in front of everything from pillarbox red Georgian entryways to dusky millennial purple styles.
If it’s a style choice you like the idea of then look no further than our external collection. A classic Chesterton in royal blue could lighten surrounding stonework and provide a pop of contrast for lush foliage.
Our new Tricoya range is another big hit for colour fans. A modernist home finished with a turquoise Modena would look pretty stunning, and factory finish paint brings with it a 12 year guarantee too.
If you want to continue the colour within your home, Colours by XL can provide a fully finished door across any number of styles, available in everything from deep red Ember to turquoise Merlin.
And don’t forget the finishing touches. Dressing and styling your doors could mean the difference between drab and delightful. Hanging baskets are a timeless classic, and you can add splashes of colour or full green foliage to frame your colourful door. Beautiful pots can do the same at ground level, bridging the gap between outside and in. And wreaths aren’t just for Christmas. A ring of seasonal greenery could set off your door with everything from spring blossoms to autumn berries.
So could your home be the next Insta hotspot? Will your front door become the backdrop to dozens of perfectly styled selfies?
