Banana In Panorama

Composite door manufacturer Vista Panels has updated its XtremeDoor brochure to follow homeowner trends with a wide view of colour options including a banana-ish yellow.

Vista’s head social media co-ordinator Lauren Barnes says: “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. We have looked at various sources to gauge what is not only popular in the market today but what is potentially coming next.

“We’re all aware of the popularity of grey with anthracite RAL7016 and slate RAL7015. Nothing is looking like it will topple those shades any time soon but we have introduced agate RAL7038 and pebble RAL7032 alongside our other grey, Moon Dust. We looked at the newbuild market here to see what they were doing on their new sites, as the retail sector follows suit as homeowners take inspiration from their builds.”



Green is also predicted to be a fast-growing trend within the home improvement market as people look to sustainable living and eco-friendly products. Vista has introduced an earthy reed green RAL 6013 which sits in between the Chartwell green and standard dark green. This shade would look good next to woodgrain windows as an option.

Adds  Barnes: “It’s not only neutral colours though, bolder colours have also made their way into the door market in a small yet eye-catching way on social media, so we decided to add light pink RAL3015 along with a yellow RAL1003 to the range as well. We have seen these going through the factory on both traditional cottage style doors and the contemporary range.


Included in brochure

“Including these trending colours in the new brochure along with RAL numbers helps the retail side come to a decision faster without the need for endlessly trawling through colour charts. With an offering of 23 colours on the doors and frames, we feel there is plenty there for the consumer to choose from.”
