Choosing Exterior Paint Colors
When choosing exterior colors for your house, it's crucial to consider several elements, such as the house's fixed features, architecture, style, and surrounding environment. Fixed features are architectural elements that cannot be changed and should be considered when choosing the home's exterior color palette. These features include the foundation, materials (such as concrete, stone, brick, or stucco), roofing shingles, their style and color, chimney structures, porches, steps, retaining walls, walkways, decks, and patios. Considering these fixed features, you can create a cohesive and appealing color scheme for your home's exterior.
Your home's color scheme should complement the architectural style. Consider using colors that enhance the defining features of your Colonial, Victorian, Contemporary, or Cape-style house.
When selecting colors for your home, it's important to take into account the environment around it, including the landscaping and natural surroundings. If trees surround your home, contrasting colors can help it stand out. On the other hand, if your home is in an area without many trees, it may benefit from colors that blend in with the natural surroundings, whether waterfront, desert, urban, or wooded. In such cases, it's worth considering colors that complement the setting.
