Choosing the Right Home Exterior Paint

Although choosing the exterior color to your home may seem simple, it is a vital aspect of your home’s appearance. Not only does it affect your home, but it can affect the entire street or neighborhood. When looking for the right palate, choose something that works both for your style but compliments your home’s natural surroundings. Here are some of Houzz’s suggestions!

~ Plan around permanent elements. Any roofing, stonework, driveways, etc., that are staying in place must be taken into consideration. Notice if these elements evoke warm colors, such as beige or brown, or cool colors, such as gray and blue.

~ Examine your home’s architecture. Your home may be Victorian or mid-century ranch, but either way this can help inspire the home’s exterior color. It should fit the appropriate style, you wouldn’t paint an old plantation home burnt orange, would you?

~Notice your home’s relationship to the landscape. If your home lies deep within towering trees and is off the street, a brighter hue may allow it to stand out. Conversely, a darker hue on any home would give it the appearance that is receding.
