Vista – Colour Trends and Consumer Choice

Colour range of composite doors

ACDM member Vista Panels – Expands its range of composite door colours. 

Composite doors have been rapidly gaining popularity in the UK over the past decade due to their durability, energy efficiency and aesthetic appeal. These doors are made from a combination of materials such as glass reinforced plastic (GRP), timber and PVCu, which makes them strong, secure and long-lasting.

One of the key features of composite doors is their ability to mimic the look of traditional timber doors, while offering superior performance and weather resistance. This is achieved through a variety of colours and finishes that can be applied to the door’s surface, and these colour trends have changed over time.

In the past, white uPVC was the dominant colour for composite doors, as it offered a clean, classic look that matched well with most house styles. However, as technology and manufacturing processes have improved, homeowners are increasingly looking for more unique and individual styles that reflect their personality and taste.

One popular trend that emerged was the use of woodgrain finishes, such as rosewood, oak and mahogany. These finishes gave composite doors a more natural, organic look that was reminiscent of traditional wooden doors, without the maintenance issues associated with timber.

More recently, there has been a move away from the traditional black and grey anthracite colours that were once popular, towards a wider range of vibrant and bold colours. The popularity of these bright colours can be attributed to the desire for homeowners to create a standout front entrance, and to add a splash of colour to their homes.

The rise of social media platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest have also played a significant role in driving this trend, as homeowners are exposed to a wider variety of colour options and creative design ideas.

Some of the most popular colours for composite doors today include deep blues, greens, and reds, as well as pastel shades such as pink, yellow and mint green. These colours offer a fresh, contemporary look that can enhance the curb appeal of any property.

Another trend that has emerged is the use of dual-coloured composite doors, where the exterior and interior of the door are finished in different colours. This allows homeowners to have a different colour on the inside of the door to match their interior decor, while maintaining a cohesive look on the outside.

Lauren from XtremeDoor explains, “An entrance door is integral in the first impression people make of a property, and so homeowners of course want theirs to make a statement. Over the years, colour has become one of the most important elements when choosing a new front door, and so it’s always been important to us to be able to provide a wide range of colour options to our customers.

Today’s consumers are more tuned into market trends, so we have looked at various sources to gauge what is not only popular in the market today, but what is potentially coming next.”
