Choosing Outdoor Paints
Looking to enhance your home's curb appeal? One way of boosting your home’s exterior allure is creating unique and intriguing outdoor color schemes. If you are a new homeowner or looking to spruce up your existing home, it can sometimes be hard to figure out exactly which color you want. Maybe you want to try something new, but you're afraid it might be too much or you'll hate it a few days later. Well, you're in luck. Here are a few tips to make sure that the color you pick for the exterior of your home matches your style and looks great so that you don't have any regrets!
How To Choose Outdoors Paints
One of the biggest regrets when picking exterior home colors is that it makes your home look out of place. That's why your color should be guided by your home's geography. For example, homes in Florida usually have bright exteriors because there is more sun and bright-colored vegetation grown in the area. Brown, green, and burgundy, among other neutral colors, are more common for exteriors in Colorado. Not that Colorado doesn't grow a lot of beautifully colored plants, but we are known more for the mountains than orange groves—neutral colors blend in more with the Colorado geography.
Another way to help you narrow down your exterior color choice depends on the color of your roof. If your roof is made of a black or neutral gray material then you're in luck because they'll go with anything. However, if your roof is red, brown, green, tan, or blue, then you'll want to pick an exterior color that doesn't clash with the roof color. You may have dreamed of a red exterior for your home, but if your roof is the same shade of red then you may want to reconsider. Unless you're planning on replacing your roof, this is something you don't want to overlook. Still can't decide? Another tip is to take a drive around the neighborhood to get inspiration. What did your neighbor do with their exterior that has the same roof as yours?
