Painting the exterior of your home

When people think about having their house painted, they usually think of interior painting. After all, you tend to spend more time inside your home than you do outside. However, the appearance of the outside of your house does matter. Over time, the exterior of your house can develop cracks or start to chip and peel. If your exterior paint is looking a little worse for the wear, it is time to think about hiring professional painters to improve its look.

Choosing the right color for your house is very personal. After all, you see it every time you pull into your driveway. When your house looks appealing, you look forward to that final turn. It can help elevate your entire neighborhood, (your friends will like that). It will also improve your curb appeal should you ever choose to sell.

Read on to learn about choosing the best exterior color when painting your home.

Establish a Scene

The best color for the exterior of a home can vary based on its surroundings. If you live in a neighborhood with lots of trees, you may want to choose a color that evokes natural elements, such as greens or browns. On the other hand, if you want the exterior of your home to reflect your cheery personality, you might choose colors such as yellow or light blue for a brighter look.

Look at your surroundings. What colors do you see that appeal to you? Are there flowers, bushes, trees that catch your eye? Maybe there are colors that you can pull from or use to enhance your homes color choice.

Play It Safe

If you have given the matter a great deal of thought but you just can’t make a decision, it’s perfectly acceptable to err on the conservative side and choose a neutral color for your home’s exterior paint. Light shades of beige and ecru will keep your home from looking intimidating, and you can have exterior shutters painted in a bolder color such as green or red to give your house added visual interest.

Use Complimentary Colors

When you are choosing colors for the exterior of your home, consider all of the colors you can use—not just the primary one. You can come up with a color scheme that combines complimentary colors for a look that is sure to turn heads every time they pass down your block.
