When it comes to exterior colors for the home, your brain probably thinks of neutral shades like whites, greys, and tans. But what if you want to include a pop of color? According to a new Instagram survey, there’s a specific front door color you should consider.
UK-based paint company Dulux Weathershield conducted an Instagram survey to discover some of the biggest home exterior trends on social media. The brand looked at the most-searched-for exterior trends online (yes, in the United Kingdom, but there’s likely quite a bit of overlap with the States) and then compared them with hashtag data on Instagram to narrow down the biggest color trends you can expect to see on social media and which ones you might want to consider if your own home.
While the usual trends cropped up (like neutral exteriors), a love of blue front doors also made a showing. According to the survey, blue front doors made it into the top ten most-liked Instagram exterior trends and the hashtag garnered over 22,000 likes.
While blue is a new shade for bold front doors, the idea of a colorful entrance isn’t. Back in November, Apartment Therapy spoke with real estate agent Megan Robson who explained that while neutrals are in for all-over color, the door is where you can show a bit of personality that’ll give your home a bit of fun curb appeal.
Looking to switch up your door now? Grab that paintbrush, and maybe think about trying another trend: dutch doors.
