Your home’s exterior color can make a great first impression, enhance curb appeal, and even increase resale value. It is also one of the most cost-effective ways to change the appearance of a home by emphasizing attractive details and minimizing less appealing features.
Current Trends in Exterior Paint Colors
In recent years, due to a broader spectrum of colors being made available for exterior use and consumers gaining more confidence with color, traditional white and light colors have been nudged out of the top spots. Trending home interior colors such as tinted neutrals, blues, and grays are now some of the most popular exterior paint colors.
How to Pick a Winning Color Palette
Consider other colors on or near your home (roofing shingles, brick, slate, stone accents) as well as nearby landscaping, tress that change color, flowers, and flowering shrubs when choosing an exterior color. In addition to your home’s surroundings, choose a color that subtly stands out or blends in with neighborhood houses. Once you’ve narrowed your options to two or three shades, you can buy samples and paint patches on your home’s exterior to help you decide. Another option is to paint foam-core boards with the sample colors. You can then move them to different spots to view from various angles at different times of the day and with other elements of your home. Be sure to consider accent colors, architectural detailing, and sheens (flat works best for the body of the house, satin for trim and shutters, and semigloss or high gloss for doors).
