How to Choose the Right Exterior Color for Your Home

Home using Brown color palette

Since the exterior is the biggest and most visible part of your home, choosing its color is a decision you want to be sure about.

But it is not always easy to narrow down the choices. Here are some of our best exterior color palette tips to help you find out which color will work best for your home.

How to start-Take inspiration from your home’s architecture, other exterior colors, the surroundings, and your personality to narrow down your color choices.
Red-Although some might think certain shades of red are best suited for barns, this vibrant color can add a classic punch of color to any home. If you love this color, do not be afraid to go all out.
Yellow-A yellow exterior does not have to look light and sunny, unless you want it to.  Some yellow exteriors can feel incredibly sophisticated.  A yellow with more neutral undertones works well with many trim colors, while brighter yellows can look great on a front door.

BrownBrown homes do not have to be boring. Rich chocolatey shades, stone-inspired beiges and reddish cedar hues can help ground a home to its environment.
Gray-Gray’s wide range of hues makes it a great fit for house exteriors in all styles.  This basic neutral can be warmed up or cooled down to work with about any accent color.  Play with bold oranges and greens for a midcentury modern home or stick to basic white trim and black accents for a more traditional house.
White-There is a reason white is such a classic exterior house color-it fits about every home style.  White can also be a dramatic choice, especially if you live in a lushly landscaped area where a bright white home will stand out.

Front Door-Since door color can be changed out easily, try going bold and using it as an exterior accent.  R&J Painting has years of experience in refinishing front doors.  Please give us a call or review a few of our front door refinishing testimonials at: http://www.randjpainting.com/testimonials/
