Whether you are about to put your house up for sale, or you just want to freshen up the look of your house’s exterior, the paint color choice can make or break the first impression onlookers get of your home. Your home’s appearance reflects on you, so before you head to your local home improvement store to collect paint samples, check out the following tips:
- Structure. Your house paint color should highlight the structural style of your home. For example, Victorian homes can support four carefully-selected colors that complement one another for an eye-catching look. Modern homes look more sophisticated in one overall color scheme.
- Architectural details. What aspects of your home you want to draw attention to? Are there columns along your porch? A stone or brick arch over the doorway? The right paint color ensures your home’s architectural details stand out.
- Garage. Make your property look even larger than it already is by painting your garage doors the same color as a section of your home. The color of the trim around the garage doors should match the garage door itself, or even the trim of the house.
- Surroundings. You may find an exterior paint color that you love, but if it clashes with your home’s surroundings, that color isn’t the perfect fit. Assess the other accents of your home that could use a paint job. Paint a weathered garden bench a bright color and plant flowers for a natural pop of color.
Keep the big picture in mind when choosing the paint color for your home’s exterior. Find the balance between your personal style and how the color impacts the resale value of your property.
