The Best Grey Front Door Paint Colours

I'm often asked for my recommendations for the best grey paint colours. Your first thought should be: where will you be using the paint? Inside or out? In a south-filled spacious kitchen diner, or a small lightless downstairs loo? Or is this for your front door? Your answers, as you can see from my paint colour case studies, will hugely affect which colour you should choose....but having said that, there are some answers that come up again and again. Here, then, are my favourite grey front door paint colours.....

I've firstly compiled a list of my current favourite grey paints for rooms, and then tomorrow's post will reveal my current favourite grey front door paint colours (subject to change, of course!!).

Really good grey paints are never simply a blend of black and white. It's why you pay more for some paints: that subtle blend of a whole range of undertones that gives a good grey paint its wow-factor. And it's these additions that create the better paint's complex undertones.

The Best Grey Front Door Paints

Farrow and Ball Railings is a great colour to choose if you want an updated version of a timeless black door with a contemporary twist. Railings is a very dark grey with undertones of deep night blue that show better in some lights.

Farrow and Ball Down Pipe (click here for my colour paint study) is a fantastic mid-dark grey with a good dose of deep teal, which comes out particularly in warmer light.

Farrow and Ball Pigeon looks quite strongly green in some lights, so be careful with this one, but in the shade, it gives a lovely Modern Country grey!

It's really worth looking at Dulux's excelelnt Weathershield exterior paints. One of my favourite paint colours ever is Dulux Heritage Stone Green. Stone Green is a gentle putty grey with soft green undertones.

Or, for a more greigey-grey, try Dulux Chalky Downs, which comes in five different shades so you can pick the perfect level of colour saturation for you front door!
