Looking to create a lasting impression? Pink, red and grey are among the most popular house exterior colours taking the UK by storm in 2021, research by Dulux Weathershield has found.

As part of their inaugural Great British Exterior Trends Report, the paint brand analysed Google searches to uncover which exterior colours are gaining the most attention. While grey scooped the first spot, other trending hues to dip your paintbrush into include blue, beige and black.

Described by Dulux Weathershield as “welcoming colours”, these are the perfect shades to paint either your front door or outside brickwork. As well as boosting kerb appeal, previous research discovered that some hues could even boost your property value by thousands.

“The colour you paint the outside of your house probably says more about you than the clothes you wear and the car you drive so it’s important to choose a palette that you and your neighbours will love for years to come,” Marianne Shillingford, Creative Director at Dulux, says.

“Colours that work with the building materials and the surrounding landscape are probably the most popular for painted masonry, eaves and window frames but when it comes to front doors and gates, we tend to throw caution to the wind and add a good slug of something that makes us happy and will attract big smiles and admiring glances from passers-by.”

Elsewhere in the report, Dulux Weathershield also analysed search data over the last few years to uncover which trends are here to stay. At the top of the list is exterior wall colours, with a whopping 92,900 monthly searches in 2020. Meanwhile, garden decking is the second biggest trend, with Google searches expected to increase by 437%.
