Our Composite Front Door Colour Trends

Composite doors are so versatile when it comes to style and colour, there are so many options it can often be difficult to choose the right design for your home.

To help, we have pulled together a guide showing the colour trends that are emerging.

Composite Door - Maxwell - Contemporary Collection - Anthracite Grey



A top colour trend for front doors at present, Anthracite Grey is often the colour of choice for the most style-conscious of homeowners. Not only is it a timeless colour but will look great all year round so it’s no wonder it is a popular colour choice.   Shadow Grey delivers a lighter tone in comparison to the dark hues of anthracite, either way, grey is a sure firm favourite for those who desire a sophisticated, modern and stylish alternative to black. 




Composite Door - Elm - Rural Collection - Chartwell Green



Greens are a calming, stylish and inviting colour range that really suits all properties from modern to rural.  Chartwell Green is an incredibly soothing shade of green that has become an extremely popular colour for composite doors as well as interior design trends such as ‘shabby chic’ and upcycling of old furniture. 

Did you know Chartwell Green is well known as being Winston Churchill’s colour of choice when decorating his country home in Kent – Chartwell House.



Composite Door - Aydon - Classic Collection - Black



Part of Bowater Doors classic collection, Black has become increasingly popular for both retailers and housebuilders over the years as a result of its sophisticated refined pallet.
