In the world of composite doors, colour, from timeless classics to cutting edge contemporary, is the number one growing trend. As the UK’s market leader in coloured and painted composite doors, DOORCO is pleased to announce a substantial increase in sales in this area.
Dan Sullivan, MD of DOORCO explains: “This part of our business grew by around 75% in 2017 to 2018 and in 2019 we are currently seeing a 12% increase year to date compared with 2018. It has in fact become such a major part of our offering, we even have our own Creative Consultant, Jeyda, who is constantly on the look out for the latest trends in colour across the entrances of homes and businesses.
“Taking it to the extreme, DOORCO customer Vista displayed a particularly colourful door at this year’s FIT Show. The door took inspiration from Sir Paul Smith with his signature stripes and incorporated a spectrum of colours and shades. These iconic multi-coloured stripes have leant themselves to a plethora of lively designs, including now making it on to an installed DOORCO door.
“The idea of showcasing such a statement door, is to spark the imagination, show that any colour is possible if the customer requires something unique. By having two advanced paint lines in-house, and a skilled workforce, we are able to produce bespoke products, without having to outsource to secondary suppliers. This gives us complete control of what we do and allows us to be an innovative supplier, which is key in order to stand out in the current market.
“The rise in popularity of two-tone doors, has seen colour on the outside, woodgrain effect on the inside. Just one recent example the DOORCO team have painted is a door with Anthracite grey on the inside and pink on the outside.
“DOORCO is not creating the trend, but we have made sure we are fully prepared and equipped to react to this growing demand from customers. It’s no longer about simply delivering a grey door with a nice handle, the colour options are getting more and more varied. As a business at the forefront of delivering on these trends, it’s exciting to see where it might end! We would certainly predict that the traditional standard colours will be less and less in demand in the next few years, and a variety of colour options will keep the composite door sector strong for years to come.
“When it comes to colour, DOORCO customers can offer a literally unlimited choice of coloured and painted doors. Take your pick, challenge the norm and get behind the Art of the Possible with DOORCO. We’re keen to see what the most interesting door colour you’ve ever fitted is. Tweet us your pics!”
