Mine is white atm, but wnat to paint it as it requires wiping down far too often!!

Which is supposed to be a lucky colour according to feng shui and all that?

Mine is a grotesque white plastic one atm, I HATE it. Getting quotes in to swap it out for something a bit more tasteful (and secure). New one will be glossy black with chrome door furniture (a la No.10 }

i thought it was red for feng shui, could be wrong though

i have white at front and black at the back

ours is a dirty white too ! Think racing green and dark blue are "good", or perhaps a rich red.

Darkish blue - Oxford Blue apparently. Nice.

Was meant to be dark blue but dried purple. At least it's different.

ours is red, looks lovely, but starting to fade, i am not sure pink will look so nice.

Black. Looks shit.

Black. I wanted Amsterdam Green but couldn't find it

Mines a big white wooden door but all the paint is cracking (we have just bought the place) so we will be replacing the whole door soon, I quite fancy racing green it looked lovely on one of my mums old houses.

White PVC effort. Easy to clean.

Would just like to clarify that I don't think black front doors look shit, just ours (probably something to do with the fact it doesn't fit, the paint's chipped and the bit of glass has been painted with what looks like that yellow stuff you put on headlights if you go abroad).

White PVC

Am I right in thinking that some of you are implying that front doors are meant to be cleaned?
