Choosing a color for the exterior of your house is a big decision. Generally, exterior house paint colors fall into either dark or light shade categories. Within these categories lie thousands of color options. Even more, you should take into consideration the size, light exposure and landscape around your home. With all these variables it’s no wonder home exterior painting can feel overwhelming.
Texas Professional Painting put together this article to help you pin down your vision. Read on to learn about 5 exterior paint trends you’ll see this year.
Neutrals will never lower your home’s resell value and will always be on-trend. Neutrals pair well with different materials, like brick, stucco or vinyl siding. There are thousands of options, and they’re far from boring. Consider unique neutral combinations like gray-blue, greige or the ever-versatile taupe.
Dark shades make a bold statement without being blindingly vibrant. Give a dark exterior structure by pairing it with light accent painting. Or fully embrace the moody aesthetic with a monochromatic look that combines dark exterior walls and trim. Not ready to commit? Opt for painting a section of your house dark–like the mudroom or screened-in porch.
A green exterior compliments the landscape and gives your design an organic feel. Green is also the opposite of red on the color wheel, which makes it pair well with red brick houses. If your house does not have brick, a red front door can help tie the look of your green house together. There is no need to choose shades like kelly green or lime, instead, think about shades like sage or moss.
White, cream and off-white can make your home appear larger since the color reflects light. Light-colored houses also pop against the landscape, which adds to curb appeal. Make your house stand out in a neighborhood of beige by opting for a white exterior. White paint can be either warm or cool, depending on its undertones. Warm white makes a house look cozy while cool white feels fresher.
Painting your front door in a bold or bright color is a great option if you’re limited by community guidelines. Painting the door invests less time and money than painting the entire exterior. And when it’s time to sell, painting over your door can take less than a weekend.
There is a lot to consider when it comes to painting the exterior of your home. You need to decide what kind of first impression your home will give, or what will be its curb appeal. Your landscaping, neighborhood and the size of your home all affect how your paint job will look.
