Composite Door 2021 Colour Predictions

Composite Door 2021 Colour Predictions

Next year is looking bright and bold! Here are our composite door colour  predictions for 2021

Composite door colours don’t have to be standard. Here at Bowater Doors, we love to see our customers experiment with colour when designing their new composite front door. Thanks to our in-house paint facility, we have the ability to paint our doors to almost any RAL, and our customers this year certainly embraced their creative side when experimenting with their front door paint colours. With a Bowater Door, you don’t have to follow the ‘norm’ when it comes to choosing composite external doors.

Each year we look at the predicted colour trends across the interior design industry and let you know what we think will be the must-have colours of the year. Some of our customers are already trendsetters as we have seen some very similar variations of these colours pass through our factory over the last few months.

Understated elegance

A twist on a classic is a popular choice for those who want to discreetly symbolise luxury and style. They are perfectly suited to all of our door styles. Greens and blues will always be popular, but we love these emerging tones.


RAL 5014 – Pigeon Blue

Don’t let the name put you off, we predict this colour will be popular in 2021. Classic Blue was named the colour of 2020 by Pantone and we will continue to see blue tones in our bespoke designs. Take a look at the RAL chart to find your perfect shade.

RAL 6004 – Blue Green

Can’t choose between green or blue? Mix it up! This shade is a perfect choice for those who want to subtlety move away from standard colours.

RAL 5008 – Grey Blue

Grey doors such as Anthracite are here to stay; it was our top selling colour of 2020. But if you want to deviate from the standard colours, why not give RAL 5008 colour a go?


Rural delights

RAL 1032 – Broom Yellow

If bright and bold isn’t for you, but you are interested in yellow hues, consider RAL 1032. A softer deep yellow that would really suit a rural cottage style door like Elm, why not try it out here?


RAL 3014 – Antique Pink

This colour belongs to the Rose RAL family and like Broom Yellow, would be perfectly suited to a rural composite door design like Hornbeam that features a small glazed panel to let in natural light.

The brighter the better!

Interior colour trends for 2021 are echoing calm and serene hues as we spend more times in our homes, but some of our customers are looking to spread some colourful cheer around their neighbourhood with luminous statement GRP composite doors.

RAL 1026 – Luminous Yellow

There’s nothing mellow about this yellow!

If you are looking for a bright new front door, these could be the colours for you. These colours sit in the fluorescent colour chart and look great on contemporary styles of external composite doors, like our Talbot. Pair them with an anthracite frame to match the increasing popularity of dark grey upvc windows.

RAL 3014 – Luminous Green

We love the variety of colours we see coming through our paint plant and this luminous green was certainly a colour that got us all talking. For some, green signifies new beginnings, wealth and growth; we think it’s a really fun colour to experiment with. Give it a go!


RAL 3024 – Luminous Red

Wow, this is all we have to say! The colour red is bold and a sure way to add kerb appeal to any home. Historically in America, people would paint their front doors red to show their home was a safe place and they were neighbourly. In other cultures, red is believed to be the colour of luck. Either way, we really love this luminous red. Why not try it out on your own door design?

We love seeing your creations pass through our factory so design a door as unique as you. However, we understand that It’s not just about how the door looks, as members of Secured by Design our range of composite doors are highly secure as well as thermally efficient so all you have to concentrate on is designing the door of your dreams.
