POLL: What's the colour of your front door?

The colour of your front door can have a real impact on your guests, just think about what the blue door in the Notting Hill film did for Hugh Grant!

What colour have you opted for? Photos are encouraged!
Black
Blue
Red
White
Grey

    Bright purple (my landlady's choice)! Makes quite the impression.

    I've got a standard white Yale PVC door, although it's new and looks fairly smart with a chrome lion door knocker.

    It's a shame really as I see some beautiful front doors and due to the dull generic nature of the building and all my neighbours also having plain white PVC (I'm in a terrace row) I sort of bottled it and opted for a plain conservative look.

    Mine's grey, but I'm thinking of going a bit brighter this summer

    It's got to be blue - not as harsh as black but still elegant
  • Luciana
    My favourite colour - purple!

    My door is narrower than standard but I had a white upvc door with dated half glass panel with flowers that I hated. Quotes for a new made i measure wooden door were eye watering so I bought a new upvc panel insert with fancy knocker and got a man who usually sprays industrial containers to spray the whole thing black. Now very snazzy and matches my victorian house at under £600

    I've opted for a calming green for the cottage feel

    It's a 1930s door with beautfiul stained glass - black externally, wood internally

    Lime grass green doors I love at the moment!

    Studies show that a home with a yellow front door sells faster than other colours. Mine's yellow simply because it's my favorite colour.

    Soft blue/grey

    Dark green - spent ages trying to find a colour similar to all the beautiful doors in Leiden, The Netherlands

    White is classy. lol. Although I saw a door the other day painted a beautiful sea green/grey colour. Almost knocked and asked what colour it was and where they got it from.

    A. Nice forest green.

    Mine's black. Not a colour I would have chosen. However, it is growing on me. It came with the house built a year ago. Perhaps in 2 or 3 years we'll paint it. Although that would mean painting the garage doors as well.

    Mine is black but the house is due to be repainted this spring so I might go for dark grey next time. I'm a bit limited as I live in a conservation area and can't make any radical changes. I've already changed the canopy over the door to a black metal Georgian style one as I was sick of repairing the original after totally unsuitable vehicles hit it trying to squeeze down the street. I was half expecting a complaint but it's quite in keeping and a lot cheaper to replace so unless they make it a no through road or compensate me for all the damage it's staying!

    Had a gorgeous racing green for at our previous house, going for black to match the garage now we've moved :( there's a lot going on at the front of the house so another green door sadly wouldn't work.
