Settle a debate.
Dh wants to paint the front door. No problem, I've said he can do anything but white as it just looks common and tacky imo.
Would you believe it, white is the only colour he wants!

Depends on the style of the house. But yanbu I don't like white either smile I am just getting a new door and am either going grey or black. Can't decide!

I thought you meant common as in there are a lot of them. But it's common as in tacky?

I've no idea. I don't really see very many houses with white front doors now that you mention it, even when the houses have white windows.

YABU re: common & tacky
White however can look dirty quickly that's why it would never be my preference

Poor white doors, being judged just doing their job sad

They might be "common", but they are a darn sight cheaper than the exact particular shade of feckin green I've got to have as part of my leasehold agreement. Think yourself lucky you've got a choice!

Oh really?
Quick - get the farrow and ball

No to having a preference about your front door colour . Yes for thinking a white door is common however.

biscuit for you.

White PVC? The worst. My objection is they look cheap and ugly. I don't think I've ever noticed/seen a painted white door.

My front door is white feckin common I am !!!!!!!!!!!

About turn. Yanbu. Just google earthed Belgravia - they've all got black front doors and it's vair vair posh.

Oooo, I'm common!

Anniegetyourgun Wed 22-Feb-17 19:32:19

Avaunt ye. My door's white angry

I think YAN really BU. I often find white tacky - for cars, shoes, clothes, furnishings, electronics... Black is so much classier. But I realise IABVU wink

I have a white front door. It fits in with the house. It is a very nice house, and not even slightly common.

Prince Charles obviously doesn't agree with you!

ArriettyClock1 Wed 22-Feb-17 19:34:36

Who has a white front door? Yes, they are a bit nasty imo and could look like uPVC.

We have a white wooden door with an archway around it which has gorgeous roses on in the summer.

I must be common.

"common"? Goodness.

I live in a terrible naice Leafy, market town. As middle class and middle class can be.

The majority of doors are white.

I must raise it at the next parish meeting - it really can't be allowed to go on.

btw my mother taught me that it really wasn't nice to call other people common
