Are you ready to paint your house and make it look new and updated? When you are looking for paint, there are a few things that you need to think about when looking for the right paint color and ideas. Because you want to make your house look attractive and welcoming, Bill Engler Painting wants to help you remember a few things when you are choosing paint to ensure the exterior of your home looks beautiful in your neighborhood.
Use Actual Paint Samples
When you get printed paint samples, they are great to give you an idea of what you want, but they can be deceiving. The samples on paper aren’t always the same color when you paint it on your house. Especially when viewed indoors under artificial lights vs outdoor in natural light. Paint colors can also look different over different base materials such as wood and stucco. The best thing you can do is to test paint a small area of your home’s exterior that is not highly visible. Watch paint on both the north and south sides in areas where lighting and conditions vary. Test paint next to desired trim color to get an idea of how they look side by side. Check how dried paint samples look at different times of the day. When you do this, it can help you see if you like that paint color or not.
Paint Colors that Complement Neighborhood
When you are choosing colors for your house you want to find one that sets your house apart from the other houses. But you also want to make sure it complements the neighbors. You don’t want a color that is so different from your neighbors that your house stands out like a sore thumb. You want to find a color that goes well with the neighborhood but doesn’t look like every other house. This will make the whole neighborhood look better. You do need to consider if your neighborhood has an HOA. You need to check to make sure your colors are within the approved guidelines.
What Color Should I Paint My Trim Outside?
When you paint your house, you need to find a color for your trim. This is an opportunity for a much-needed color contrast to your house. This can really make your house look nice. If you are looking for more of a subtle contrast, you can choose an exterior trim color that is just a few shades lighter or darker than the main color. But you can also go for a bolder look and you can choose a totally different color. This style is up to you. As long as you make sure the colors still go well together it can really help your house stick out in your neighborhood in a good way.
