Solidor Colours – Why is Chartwell Green so popular?

2 min read Doors

Who knew that a colour used across the UK for home exterior features, could originate from Winston Churchill painting his garden furniture a similar colour green at his family home in Kent, Chartwell House. Today, we see it on windows, doors and conservatories, garages, and sheds. But why is Chartwell Green so popular? Here are 3 reasons why Chartwell Green is everywhere you look.


1. Chartwell Green is a great alternative to white

Chartwell Green is a great colour choice for your front door, if you are looking for something that is not too bold. Best yet, due to its neutral and cool tone, it suits both silver and gold: which gives you the freedom of choice on your hardware. Here at Sheerwater, we offer a variety of styles and finishes, along with a range of additional features. You can choose any letter plate, security chain, knocker, or handle you want, and it will perfectly match your Chartwell Green door. Build your dream door using our composite door builder and even view it on your own home.

2. Can be used for more traditional and modern homes

Chartwell Green perfectly captures all things traditional and transports us to the British countryside. However, the versatility of Chartwell Green means it also complements modern homes. Whether your home is a thatched cottage or a new build, Chartwell Green complements granite, brick, timber, or sandstone.

Our customers say

“Used the Sheerwater team to replace a couple of Velux windows in our converted loft. Really first class experience, great communication throughout, super professional and the installation was the best we've had in terms of fit and finish and (lack of) damage to surrounding areas. Will use again!”Tim Loake
