Whether we realise it or not, the colours with which we surround ourselves – that may be clothes, car, or home- reveal a lot about us as a person.

Research by Dulux Weathershield has revealed Brits make an assumption about a person in less than ten seconds after seeing the colour of their front door.

Front door colours

Colour psychologists have identified what your front door colour choice says about you. We’ve selected the description for the top five most common front door colours:

Famous for being the colour of the iconic 10 Downing Street front door, Black is believed to be chosen by those who are the most mysterious. A black front door projects strength, sophistication, power and authority indicating to visitors the house is inhabited by a person of substance.

Blue is considered to be chosen by those who are most intelligent. A blue front door signals that the homeowner views his or her home as a place of refuge- calm, peaceful and relaxing.

Green connotes health, safety and tranquillity, and harmony, all desirable attributes for the home environment.

Red is associated with passionate people, London was identified as the region with the most red doors. The homeowner is projecting a vibrant house, full of life, energy, and excitement.

Brown, along with white or cream doors are the least expressive- these shades connote warmth, stability and reliability. However, dark shades signal a desire for privacy, even isolation.
