Exterior House Painting: Choosing the Best Color

Posted & filed under Exterior Residential Painting.

When it’s time to think about exterior house painting, Brooklyn Park residents have a lot to consider! First things first though: What color are you going to paint your home? Are you just going to get a fresh coat of its current color, or are you planning to change the entire look and feel of your home with a whole new color? We here at Durapro Painting are happy to help you pick out the best paint colors for your home’s exterior when you call us for our exterior house painting services.

Take a look at your home’s exterior and look at any colors that are already there. Do you have a brick or stone home? If so, the color(s) you choose should complement the stone work that is already there. If your home doesn’t have any stone or brick to it, start to think about your own personal style. Are you more of a traditionalist and you want to stick with the tried and true colors like beige, white or yellow? Or do you think your exterior house painting company should paint your home a less traditional color like blue or pink?

If you still can’t make up your mind, a good rule of thumb when it comes to exterior house painting is to go with a lighter color. This will definitely brighten up your home and add curb appeal, and it will keep it from looking too dark and foreboding. A lighter shade of paint also makes the house look fresher and cleaner overall.

Take a look at a color wheel and draw inspiration from that. Opposite colors always look good, so consider using those shades. For example, green and red are color opposites, so you could use olive green with an accent of burgundy.

If your home has beautiful or unique architectural features, you should definitely ask your exterior house painting company to play up those features with whatever paint colors you chose.
