Smart Ways to Pick the Best Exterior Color Scheme

Choosing a color scheme for your home’s exterior is a weighty decision! You want to choose colors that will complement your existing architecture and the other homes in your neighborhood, while also giving your home a charming aesthetic that reflects your own personal style and taste. Complete Exteriors, expert in roofing, fiber cement siding, and landscaping, is here to help you achieve a harmonious appeal for your exterior. Follow these tips as you plan your project:

Consider Your Own Preferred Aesthetic:

What kind of visual effect are you seeking? Bear in mind that lighter colors can make your home look bigger, making it stand out from your landscaping, while darker colors tend to do the opposite. If you prefer a clean aesthetic, consider an all-white house.

Check Your Home’s Design Elements

Traditional homes usually feature three colors for the body, trim, and accent, while modern homes typically incorporate more than three colors. Unless you’re doing a total makeover, your metal roofing, stonework, and pathways will stay in place. Make sure to take cues from your home’s natural surroundings too. If you want to set your home apart from the rest of the neighborhood, we recommend using midtones instead of rich tones to give your home a unique appeal that does not overpower.

Don’t Count on Paint Chips Alone

Paint chips are a great way to visualize how different colors would look on your home, but before you make your final decision we recommend buying a pint of paint in a color you like and testing it on an unnoticeable part of your home. Examine the paint at different times of the day and under various weather conditions. This will help you achieve the desired look and feel for your home.
