 Picking Your Home’s Exterior Paint Color 

  • Tip 1- Firstly, we recommend homeowners to think about the mood they are trying to set. Are you looking for bright colors to bring a welcoming feel? Neutral colors will bring a more modernized, calming look to the home, while black colors will create a sleek, chic feel.

  • Tip 2- Another tip is to account for your home’s architectural detail and style. This includes things like windows, trim, doors, and the style/layout of your home. Decide if you are wanting these to blend in or stand out. Base your colors from either highlighting or complementing these areas of your home’s exterior. Pertaining to the style of your home, certain styles pair better with specific color palettes for the home’s exterior to bring a more finished, flowing appearance.

  • Tip 3- Another tip we strongly recommend is taking account of your house’s surroundings and landscape. Try to pick a color that pairs well with surrounding homes, landscape, environment, etc. to create a coordinated and cohesive look.

  • Tip 4- Base your exterior color on your home’s materials and texture (Bricks, stones, tiles, vinyl, etc.). Choose colors that compliment and bring together your home’s exterior appearance.
