Choose the right exterior color for your home that is suitable for all seasons!
Choosing an exterior for your home can be a daunting task. Choosing them for a rustically old home that’s smack-dab in the middle of a carefully color coordinated community is downright intimidating.
Fortunately, there are some classic go-to colors for the exterior that will suit any time, at any home, and all seasons yet to come.
Here are some tips on how to pick the right color for you home!
Keep it simple.
You never want to overdo it when it comes to colors. Too many and the house will look very distracting. Clashing colors are displeasing to the eye, so keep details and colors simple!
Take to nature.
Look to nature for inspiration when it comes to the color scheme. Try a sage theme (beige, red, and muted green), gold (gold, white, and black), or camel (camel, white, dark red). Look around you for inspiration for colors!
Do you have an accent?
Make your guests go ooh-la-la! Highlight your home’s accents with a different color of paint. Accent window frames and doors, but never paint unattractive elements such as gutters, downspouts, or an air conditioning unit a different color. This will draw attention to the feature!
Go for color replacement.
Light or white colors are good choices for windowsills for reflection of the sun’s heat and light. Light colors advance in space, while dark colors recede. If your house is placed far away from the curb, opt for lighter colors that will visually bring it forward.
