With the new year approaching, an easy way to freshen up the look of your home is with a coloured front door.

Below we look at which colours are tipped to be most popular in 2023, and which would best suit your home in London or the South East.

Colour of the year

Dulux has chosen Wild Wonder as its colour of the year – an earthy yellow tone – and has put together four new colour palettes to match. Based on this, we expect yellows, pastel colours and pale, dusky pinks to be in demand in 2023.

2023 shades of grey

Blue Composite Door

Depending on the shade, grey doors can give properties a bold, modern look, or blend more with the pastel palette mentioned above.  This is already one of the most popular door colours used in London, with next year’s hues tipped to be rich charcoal or light dove grey.

One of the most adaptable door colours, grey complements both modern and period properties. An anthracite grey door looks best in the city, whilst lighter French greys are more suited to traditional country homes.

Blue front doors

Already a popular choice in the capital, 2023 is expected to see appetite for blue doors increase – particularly blue-grey or light, turquoise blue. Ranging from traditional to bold or characterful, blue is one of the most versatile colours you could choose.

If your home is modern or close to water, you could make a statement with Dulux’s 2022 colour of the year, Blue Skies. Traditional or brick properties would benefit from a darker navy or royal blue door, whilst teal is a good match for grey stone like that of London townhouses.

Earthy toned front doors

More subtle, natural looking, earthy toned doors are ideal for if you’re trying to achieve a homely yet elegant effect. Muted neutrals such as taupe and beige will likely be popular with homeowners in 2023, as will warmer and richer brown toned doors.

Red Front Door

Earthy tones don’t have to be limited to browns – shades of blue, green and pinks can also fit within this category and give a similar soothing feel, pairing particularly well with London’s Victorian terraces.

The age of sage

Currently in demand with interior designers, sage green is also poised to take over as one of the most popular front door colours next year. Green has long been a popular choice for front doors – traditionally more Chartwell for period or rural homes, and darker bottle green for properties like those in Chelsea or Notting Hill – but the yellow undertones of sage give this traditional colour a modern update.

Thanks its base, sage goes well with most buildings and surface types. When paired with white it gives a fresh, natural and tranquil feel reminiscent of nature. For coloured exteriors, sage pairs well with other warm toned colours such as blue, yellow or cream.

Thanks to its versatility and ability to boost moods, we believe sage green is destined to be popular well beyond 2023.

Classic statement coloured doors with a citrus twist

Classic statement colours for front doors include glossy black uPVC doors as well as pillar box red. In 2023 we expect these to be joined by yellow and orange coloured doors, matte black exteriors and all-white designs. Bolder colours work best when set against a less flamboyant background, unless you are aiming for a truly eclectic look.

Black Front Door

Black front doors are not only practical, but are traditional in London, giving any property a feel of grandeur to rival that of 10 Downing Street.
