Best Benjamin Moore Home Colors 2021 

July 7, 2021

Now is the perfect time to paint the exterior of your home. The days are long and the weather is generally warm enough to paint. If 2021 is the year you plan to paint your home’s exterior, check out some of Benjamin Moore’s best home colors for this season. 

Why Benjamin Moore Paints? 

Benjamin Moore Paints are made to last and are seen by paint experts as more durable than their competitors. 

This is exactly what you want in an exterior paint. You want it to not only be durable, but fade resistant so that it maintains its color vibrancy even after long summer days of New England sun and frigid winter storms that can cause some serious wear-and-tear to lower quality paints. 

Along with being durable and fade resistant, many professional painters report that Benjamin Moore paints go on smoother and thus leave fewer streaks or lap marks that can be unsightly after a project is complete. There’s nothing worse than having to repaint an area due to blemishes caused by the quality of paint. With Benjamin Moore paints, you don’t need to worry about that.

Exterior Colors 2021 

Even though the year is half over, there is still time to schedule your home’s exterior paint project with Jerry Enos Painting. We paint all the way through the summer and into the fall until the temperature no longer permits it. 

This year’s exterior colors are simply lovely and sure to catch the attention and envy of neighbors and people passing by. 


Shades of gray are all the rage currently as they are neutral enough to coordinate with the surrounding environment but sophisticated enough to provide a positive curb appeal for any style of home. 

Two shades of gray that are particularly popular right now are Benjamin Moore’s Kendall Charcoal HC-166 and Revere Pewter HC-172. Kendall Charcoal is a deep rich gray that has a little bit of warmth to it, while Revere Pewter is a lighter gray with undertones of beige for those homeowners looking for something more neutral. Both colors go well with one of the many shades of whiles for the trim or rich backs for shutters.

Blues & Greens

Benjamin Moore offers a wide selection of blues and greens, from the lightest shades to the deepest and richest hues. Newburg Green HC-158 and Hale Navy HC-154 are two such colors that are becoming popular for exterior colors this year. 

Newburg Green is a dark rich teal that stands out from the typical New England colors of white, brown, and gray. Hale Navy is the perfect choice of blue for those that like their Navy blues to be not too bright and not too blue. 

Also in the category of blues and greens, that you should consider when painting the exterior of your home, is the Color of the Year 2021, Aegean Teal 2136-40. This color reminds us of the medium blue of the sea as it glistens under the Grecian sun.
