Last time we covered how to choose the best paint color for your home’s interior. This week we’ll cover the exterior of your home! As the trusted painting company serving Eden Prairie, we know a thing or two about paint colors and finishes. That’s why we’d like to offer a few suggestions to help you with arguably what might be the most fun and most frustrating part about painting; choosing the color!
When it comes to the exterior of your home the stakes are even higher. You can repaint the inside of your house a number of times without anyone noticing. But, the outside of your home is something you’ll likely want to stick with for a while. And, it is something that is most definitely taken note of by neighbors and something you will want to be proud of. Although our painting company can come out and change the color anytime you’d like, it’s a good idea to find something you’ll want to stick with.
Here are a few things to consider to help you find the right paint and color for your unique home’s exterior. And, when you’re ready, contact our professional painting company and we can get started transforming your home with a beautiful, new, clean and courteous paint job.
Similar to choosing the color for the interior of your home, it is important to consider the lighting at different times of day. The color you choose for your home’s exterior should look good throughout the entire day, not just during the morning or afternoon hours. So before your painting company arrives, make sure you consider what each color you’re considering will look like throughout the entire day: from the early morning hours through the evening. That way, you can be sure your house will look good no matter what time of day it is.
Consider your neighborhood. Do you live in a historic neighborhood? Or does it have a laid-back lakeside feel? You should also look at your neighbors’ homes and the color palettes they have chosen. We’re not saying you have to completely blend in but it’s important not to clash with the surrounding homes.
While we’re on the subject of blending, it is also important to keep in mind that the color you choose for your home should blend well with your roof, driveway, chimney and other elements of your house. If you choose a color that clashes, you will have to contact your painting company to re-do your home’s entire exterior, not just the paint color.
