Exterior Painting

Standing in front of your freshly painted home can certainly make you feel good. You reach the point of satisfaction when you get things right for your exterior house painting. When choosing the best colours for your home, consider the following tips to help you choose the colours that will look great for many years to come.


Observe the colours of other homes in the community

Look around and do your best to blend in the colours of other homes in the neighbourhood. You don’t have to be a copycat t to blend in, but choose colours that will work beautifully with the surrounding homes. For example, painting your house with deep purple could be an eyesore in a street full of white Colonial houses. But in a street of quaint Victorians, deep purple could work wonderfully.


Highlight your home’s best features

Emphasize the best features of your home like the front door, shutters, stone foundation, or other attractive features. Sections like the gutters and downspouts, that awkward add-on, or a plain-looking chimney can blend in details. Having your home painted with neutral tan will go beautifully with white windows with a rusty copper or earth red front door. Also, painting the window sills and the trim below the window with chocolate colour will complement the overall look.

You may want to choose good colours that will complement your landscape. Having the right colours to highlight the beauty of your garden will instantly add appeal to your home. Dark olive green and rich brown exteriors paint colours look beautiful behind pink, lavender, and blue blossoms. Homes with buttery yellow and creamy peach colour look even more lively with plant colours of orange, purple, and white.
