Terrified Of Picking Exterior Paint Designs? Here Are Some Tips! 

 Picking out the best exterior paint color and design for your home is not as easy as it sounds. In fact without guidance it could be a disaster in most cases! Your home could look featureless and flat with the wrong colors; at the same time the right kind of colors could bring out the best in the architectural details. Here are some tips you could follow: 


Exterior paint color and design

  • Get a blast of color from the past – if you are painting an old home, recreating the original color of the building will be historically correct and also look splendid. You could opt for modern colors on old buildings; however, it may not work in conservative neighborhoods.

  • Keep the neighborhood in consideration – you can always get ideas for exterior paints from your neighboring homes. Do not copy them as far as color schemes are concerned but make sure not to clash colors either.

  • Get help from nature – depending on your natural surroundings, you can use nature as your color palette. So, if your home is surrounded by woods, choose browns and greens; if you reside near the sea, a combination of turquoise variations, blues and coral colors can do wonders. You could even pick a colorful combination from your front garden

  • Make sure that the colors you use on the exterior walls of your home remain in harmony with the color of the roof.

  • Use colors in accord with features that will not be colored. A brick wall or a wooden door or even vinyl windows remain without color. Keeping your color scheme in synchronization with these non-color features of your home will make them stand out beautifully.

  • The question of how many different colors can be used is always a difficult one. You can try and have separate shades of the same color throughout the exterior or even try contrasting hues. Where a white or cream colored exterior makes a building look larger and offers dignity; well coordinated contrasts can bring in modernity and exclusivity.

          Do make sure not to go overboard though – a maximum of six colors should be enough to cover the door, window, porch, bracket and other combinations.

  • Accentuate trims, alcoves, projections and small corners or recesses with dark colors. These add drama to the overall color scheme and also bring to notice these hidden areas.
