When it comes to choosing the colour, it could be very stressful. Still, it becomes even more intimidating when you have to select the colour for the exterior of your home as exterior hues can affect the entire street, unlike interior colours. If you don’t like the colour of any interior wall, you can repaint it. But with exterior paint, one wrong decision, and you will be stuck with it for a very long time.
If you are struggling with choosing the right exterior paint colours for your home, this article will walk you through each step for selecting the right paint colour combination and finishes for the exterior of your home.
1. Identify your homestyle
The exterior colour of your home gives a personality to your home. The design and homestyle of your home should be considered before choosing the colour for your exterior. Your exterior paint scheme should feel appropriate to the style.
2. Look at your neighbourhood
Drive around your neighbourhood and snap photos of homes that look like yours and the exterior colour palettes you like. Think about your home’s relationship to the landscape and street. Instead of going with darker shaded colours, you can choose a slightly lighter or brighter colour to make your house stand out because a darker hue can make your home appear to recede.
3. Your desired aesthetics
Do a little research and find pictures of houses you like. Once you have a basic idea of what you want for the exterior of your home, you can use a colour visualizer to find that perfect colour for your home.
4. Avoid trends
When it comes to something like paint, never go with the trend. Trends come and goes; what may be hot today may not be tomorrow. Stay away from any trend and choose your colour which will remain classy through the years.
