Your front door is the first thing a person sees when they visit your home and sets the benchmark for what they can expect to find inside, so first impressions really do count.
Looking to give your front door a makeover to better suit your style? Or perhaps you’re preparing to sell your home and want to choose the best colour to please the majority? Whatever your reasoning for wanting to switch up your aesthetic, we’re here to guide you through the variety of composite door colours available to you! We’re also on hand to advise on which colour you should pick to cater to your unique desires, so you can sit back and relax knowing that Benchmark Windows has your back!
It might sound like a ridiculous concept, but, according to many, the colour of a front door can actually reveal a lot about its occupants. For example, did you know that, traditionally, in Scotland, painting your door red signified that you’ve paid off your mortgage? Or that a black front door symbolises sophistication and wealth? According to Feng Shui, your front door acts as a portal of energy into your home, so should be carefully considered to suit your needs. While following the rules of Feng Shui might not be for everyone, it’s worth considering the emotions you want your new composite door colour to evoke, especially if you’re looking to sell your property in the near future.

At Benchmark Windows, we offer a range of composite door designs and colours, providing a stunning, secure entrance to your home. Regardless of your individual requirements and preferences, we’re proud to provide composite door colour options to best suit you.
As a bespoke composite door supplier, one question we’re often asked is – should my composite front door colour be the same colour inside and out? Ultimately, the answer to that question will depend on a variety of factors, from the size of your hallway to your current interior decoration. As a general rule of thumb, interior spaces generally feature a neutral base and a strong colour. Take the time to consider how the composite door colour you’re thinking of choosing suits your interior by asking yourself questions like – when closed, does it make the space look smaller? And, does it detract from the rest of the interior?
If your door opens into a hallway, a strong composite front door colour could work well as a focal point. If your door opens straight into a living space, a neutral composite door colour could be a more appropriate option for you. However, if you’re looking to create contrast inside your home, you could pick a colour featured in your interior and highlight that through your chosen composite door colour.
The best composite front door colour for you will also depend on the type of property you’re working with. For example, if you’re living in a terraced house, bright colours like yellow and green will help make your house stand out from the rest, a technique particularly favoured by those wishing to make their home stand out on the property market.
However, if you’re looking for the right composite front door colour for a contemporary home, muted shades like grey and black work best to ensure your architecturally designed home remains tasteful.
Consider Your Surroundings
If you’ve followed our advice up to this point and still can’t decide on the best composite door colour for your property, we recommend turning to your home’s surroundings for help. If your house is situated in nature, earthy colours like greens, browns and blues are all great options for you. In contrast, if you’re looking for the perfect colour for your townhouse, a bright, bold shade of orange, yellow or red could help to add a much-needed splash of colour to a neutral row of identical homes.
If indecisiveness is your downfall, don’t panic. Neutral colours like brown, black or grey all offer a look that’s bound to withstand the test of time. Even deep reds and blues have remained in style for decades! So, whenever you choose to alter your composite door, choosing something neutral will ensure you won’t have to worry about keeping up to date with the latest modern styles.
Embrace your desires
Ultimately, when choosing the best composite front door colour, it’s most important to consider your own desires. Yes, while a pink front door might make a fun statement on a contemporary home, if to you it screams nothing but distaste, it’s probably not the best option for you.
