Choosing a a color for the exterior of your house can seem daunting – after all, it’s generally the first thing people notice about a home. However, sprucing up your home with a fresh coat of paint can be a great long-term investment.
To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of tips below that detail how to choose a color that will make your property pop.
Supplement Current Styles
Start by identifying what you like about the way your home already looks. Additionally, take stock of the neighborhood. You want a home that represents your unique style, but standing out too much can lead you down the path of becoming an eyesore. For example, a suburban cul-de-sac full of beige and taupe will make a bright yellow paint job standout more than it would in a vibrant downtown setting.
Let the Landscape Guide You
The way that the sun rises and falls throughout the day can affect how colors will fare, as well as the amount of foliage on your property. To give you an idea of what we mean, a bold color that will be muted by shade from trees for a majority of the day might be better used elsewhere.
Take Trends With a Grain of Salt
There is nothing worse than driving past a home and thinking, “That will look so out of place in 10 years.” We all love a good trend, but putting too much emphasis on passing fads can actually decrease the value and long-term curb appeal of your home.
