What are Solidor’s newest colours? 

Bid farewell to ordinary and traditional door colours and get ready to embrace the charm of Pottery Blue, Pebble Grey and Granite Grey. 

Pottery Blue – a timeless elegance 

Step into the rich heritage of British pottery with the first of the 3 new colours, Pottery Blue. 

Inspired by the iconic Wedgwood Blue, this shade pays homage to the renowned pottery that originated in Burslem in 1759, now a part of Stoke-on-Trent, also known as The Potteries. The soft-grey blue hue reflects the elegance of Wedgwood and can add a touch of timeless sophistication to your home.

Not just a hue, but a symbol of refined taste, Wedgwood Blue was even the inspiration behind the signature colour of the Bridgerton family in the popular Netflix series, Bridgerton. 

If you want to create the same regal vibes, pair this soft blue with neutral tones, providing you with a subtle yet luxurious entrance to your home. 

Pebble Grey – a touch of modern sophistication  

For those who appreciate versatility and timelessness, Pebble Grey is the answer. 

Described as mid-taupe, this in-demand shade effortlessly complements a variety of exterior finishes, while its timeless nature makes it an ideal choice for seamlessly blending with a range of interior designs.

Why is choosing the right door colour so important?

When it comes to searching for a new front door, some individuals find it challenging to settle on a colour and may even question the significance of door colour altogether. 

It’s important to remember that your front door is not just an entry point for your home; it’s also a statement. The colour you chose for this focal point can significantly influence the overall aesthetics and perceived personality of your home. 

Here are some reasons why selecting the right door colour is considered a crucial decision in the world of home design: 

1. First impressions matter 

The front door is the first thing guests and passersby notice about your home. It sets the tone and creates an initial impression. Choosing the right door colour ensures that your home makes a positive and memorable impact from the very first glance. 

2. Reflecting your style 

Your home is an extension of your personality and style. The door colour serves as a canvas to express your unique taste. Whether you prefer a classic look, a bold statement or a subtle touch to match your surroundings, the right colour choice can reflect and enhance your overall design preferences. 

3. Kerb appeal enhancement 

The right door colour can significantly enhance your home’s kerb appeal. It adds charm, character and visual interest, making your resident stand out in the neighbourhood. A well-chosen colour can transform an ordinary entrance into an eye-catching focal point. 

4. Complementing architectural elements 

Harmonising your door colour with the architectural style of your home creates a cohesive and balanced look. Whether your home boasts modern lines, traditional details or a mix of both, the right door colour can tie all these elements together seamlessly. 

5. Creating a welcoming atmosphere 

Certain colours evoke specific emotions and atmospheres. Warm and inviting hues can create a welcoming ambiance, while bold choices can add a touch of drama. The right door colour contributes to the overall feel of your home, making it more inviting and comfortable. 

6. Boosting resale value 

A thoughtfully chosen door colour can enhance your home’s market appeal. It’s a small investment that can yield significant returns by making your property more attractive to potential buyers. It’s a simple yet effective way to add value and kerb appeal.

7. Adapting to seasonal changes 

The right door colour can adapt to seasonal changes, allowing you to refresh the look of your home without major renovations. Consider how your chosen colour interacts with the changing landscape and the surrounding seasons elements.
