Choosing Exterior Paint Color Combinations

Choosing exterior paint colors is an important decision that adds beauty, charm and curb appeal to your home. It’s also a decision you may have to live with for 7 to 10 years if you don’t sell the home. In short, you will want to make sure you are more than comfortable with your color choices before and after the paint dries! Bill Engler Painting’s professional exterior painting contractors can assist you in selecting your exterior paint colors or solid stains. You may want to start by considering the things you aren’t planning to change such as the unpainted roof, brick, stone and other material on your home’s exterior as well as landscaping features. This will help you choose paint colors that work harmoniously with them. Other helpful tips include the fact that lighter paint colors make a home seem larger, a prominent accent color can highlight a unique design element while choosing a paint color that matches your siding can help hide an unsightly design feature.

Light Affects Paint Color!

The appearance of a color’s vibrancy and hue may be altered at lower and higher light levels. It is a good idea to test a paint spot of your chosen colors on your home both day and night as well as in different types of daylight including sunny and cloudy conditions. It is also helpful to consider the direction your house faces. If your house faces north, the paint colors will generally look cooler, while a southern exposure tends to warms the paint color as their is a higher amount of UV light. Sun exposure will fade the paint on your home eventually and some paint colors fade quicker than others. If this is a concern, you will want to choose earth tone paint colors such as browns or tans and stay away from colors such as reds, blues, yellows.
