Updating the exterior paint colors on your residential home or commercial business is one of the most cost effective ways to improve the curb appeal and value of your property. Selecting the right color scheme can be a daunting process especially if you are interested in recreating your exterior using a completely new color palette. The knowledgeable experts at All Painting & Restoration recommend selecting your exterior paint colors based on a very important rule. Utilize three color combinations consisting of a dominant color for your siding, and two complimenting colors for the trim and accent. Your choice of colors will impact the appearance of your home or business which makes selecting the right variety of hues and shades extremely important. For the best possible results, consult with your All Painting & Restoration color specialist.
Picking Popular Exterior House Paint Colors
Categorize your color selections by determining if you prefer cool, neutral, or warm color palettes. As you research your combinations, think about the impact that your choice in colors will have on your property. For example dark colors have a tendency to make a building appear smaller. Some of the most dynamic color combinations for 2017 include:
Bright White/Aqua/Tangerine Orange – Consider painting your siding a vibrant white with aquamarine trim and shutters. Utilize Tangerine as a statement color to create a dynamic effect for your front door. Similar color combinations work especially well for a variety of different architectural styles.
Battleship Gray/Blood Red/Vibrant White: The color gray has long been associated with sophistication and elegance especially when used as the dominant color for your exterior. Consider painting window frames, porch trim and front doors blood red, with bright white window sashes to make your home or business the envy of the neighborhood.
Rich Buttercream Yellow/Clean White/Midnight Black: Yellow, regardless of the shade is a symbol of happiness and the shade of buttercream works especially well to embody an inviting look to your home or business. Combine buttercream yellow siding with clean bright white trim and accents with black shingles for a truly dynamic look that will increase your curb appeal tenfold.
Tips for How to Choose Exterior Paint Color Combinations
Consider the architectural characteristics of your home when selecting paint colors, for example if you have a dark roof consider selecting a cool color palette. If you have a roof that is made of brown shingles, warm color tones will bring out the best attributes. Other considerations include:
• The color scheme of the home neighboring your own – make sure that you select colors that will complement the homes around you to ensure that your home does not become the eyesore of the neighborhood.
• Local ordinances or home owner associations: do your research to ensure that you are not violating the terms of your home owner association in terms of exterior color selections.
• Making the most of your exterior color selection by considering the use of lighter or darker color variations to accent eaves, window frames and shutters.
