Exterior Design Trends in 2023

A massive trend that picked up in 2022 was mixed materials. From real wood, brickwork, stone features and steel elements, you can create depth and textures, unlike previous uniform property trends.

Woodwork can add a layered effect and visual interest, but it also disrupts the monotony of symmetry, solid colours and uniform brickwork. Create a feature porch or statement front door like our client in Stockport:

Not only do stone and brickwork add texture, but the lights and darks can also create depth and character that contrast the clean line look. This can be added with stone walkways and paths, brick walls, stone masonry and porch features. Take a look at this unique brickwork porch we finished in Liverpool.

Front Door Colour Trends 2023

Your front door can truly change the facade of your home. So when it comes to choosing the right colour, a big decision is at hand. 

Although Black is the go-to colour when it comes to selling, the top spots for front door colour trends in 2023 are taken by rich red, sage green, blue hues and mellow yellows. These are the most popular, on-trend colours for your front door this year.

When it comes to choosing the colour of your front door in 2023, don’t forget to pay attention to the period of your property, the colours and textures surrounding your door and other porch details to make sure you’ve got a cohesive look.

Using glass panels to open up your door can not only add more natural light to your entrance but also make it feel more inviting to welcome your guests.

There are tons of ways you can use stone at your entrance. From patterned borders to personalised porches. You can create a welcoming place for guests to escape the rain. We have installed many porches in our time, and work our plans around your ideas.

Stonework doesn’t have to be original for it to make a statement. You can add traditional designs to newer houses, mixing old with new but still keeping on trend.

Door Knockers

Now, these can just scream personality. Whether it’s traditional, a familial crest or just plain interesting, choosing a door knocker can add so much to your home’s curb appeal. Here are some that we’ve found.
