Doors 2024

According to Rated People, getting a new front door was among the top home improvement jobs that UK homeowners wanted to do in 2023. Mark Young, the commercial director at Door-Stop International, talks us through the company's six new colours that might appeal.

The main reasons for revamping homes included wanting to be more houseproud, increasing a property’s value and feeling it is more cost effective to improve than move.


Traditional & contemporary

As interior brands release their colours of the year for 2024, Door-Stop International’s six new colours are perfect for homeowners looking to lead the way for this year’s interior trends, writes Young.

Our new additions – Pebble Grey, Agate Grey, Purple Violet, Fern Green, Turquoise Blue and Pastel Blue – offer both traditional and contemporary finishes to suit any property.

It’s clear that the natural world is continuing to be a source of inspiration. From calming tones associated with the British countryside through to more vibrant sea blues, brands have embraced a range of landscapes to give homeowners the chance to incorporate earthy tones into the comfort of their home.


The great outdoors

Door-Stop International’s new colours have been inspired by the great outdoors. They help homeowners to coordinate their exterior doors with the latest colour trends.

The two new greys in the range - Pebble Grey and Agate Grey – can be paired with Dulux’s colour of the year, Sweet Embrace or Graham & Brown’s Viridis to create a calming entrance to any home.

Pastel Blue meanwhile will provide a classic and timeless appeal. For those with a bolder design preference, a front door in Purple Violet, Fern Green or Turquoise Blue can be used to create a focal point both inside and outside of their property.


No compromises

With a cost-of-living crisis continuing to affect homeowners, smaller changes such as a new door can make a big impact. Not only does a new door increase kerb appeal, it can help improve energy performance and reduce heating bills.

The new colours that have been added to Door-Stop’s range ensure customers can not only find the right door that performs from an energy efficiency perspective but also one that suits their style and their home.



With 19 colours now available, homeowners will be able to find a shade to complement a range of exterior finishes. Combined with the wood-effect texture of Door-Stop’s GRP skins, homeowners can have the appearance of a timber door with the performance benefits of a composite.


Frame options

With colour all-round options and nine frame colours available to complement the door including White, Mahogany, Cherrywood, Oak, Brown-Black, Grey, Cream and Chartwell Green, customers have a vast choice to get the exact look they require. Customers also have the option to select a different colour for the internal side of the door as standard, allowing them to match their interior colour scheme.

The Veka Sculptured profile will provide even more opportunities to customise entrances based on design preferences and architectural styles. These new profiles deliver on both aesthetics and functionality and are available in all nine existing frame colours.



Above all else, security must be a key factor when purchasing a new door. Homeowners want to feel safe and secure in their own home so a door that performs and locks well is a must.

Door-Stop doors are fitted with an Ultion lock as standard which carries TS007 3-star grade 6 Kitemark accreditation. The Ultion Secure Guarantee assures customers that in the unlikely event of a break-in via the front door, not only do they get a replacement but also £2,000.

Secured by Design accreditation is also available for added peace of mind.
