Research by Dulux Weathershield has revealed Brits make an assumption about a person in less than 10 seconds after seeing the colour of their front door.
Navy blue is considered to be the colour chosen by those who are the most intelligent.
People with yellow front doors are thought of as the happiest and most welcoming hosts.
Grey was associated with people who are sincere.
Black – the colour of the iconic 10 Downing Street front door – was believed to be chosen by those who are the most mysterious!
Red was associated with passionate people and London was identified as the most passionate region with the most red doors.
A lilac front door is believed to convey a creative homeowner.
Cream is the colour most associated with a peaceful home.
People with pink front doors are believed to be the most outgoing and mischievous.
The most expressive region in the UK is the South East with 22% of residents choosing bright colours such as red, yellow, green and blue. Homeowners in Northern Ireland are the least expressive as 90% have either a brown, white or cream door.
Karen Haller, Applied Colour Psychologist said: ‘The colour we paint our front door not only gives the outside world a clue to the personality of those who live inside, but after a busy day it’s wonderful to be greeted by a colour that says ‘welcome home!’. Taking pride with the exterior of your house improves the look of your home and can also impact the way we feel, engage and interact with our space. Your choice of colour can make all the difference.’
