Choosing an Exterior Color That is Right for You

When it comes time to paint your home, many people will chime in about a color they have seen or a color to avoid. All these well-meaning people may have good ideas or points, but you are the one who will need to live with the color day-in and day-out. You need to choose what is right for you and for the type of home you have. Here are a few tips from our experts on how to choose an exterior color that is right for you.

 

  • Do Your Research – This could mean different things for different people but we suggest starting by looking online for exterior colors that you love. Our portfolio page has several inspirational homes that could get you started. For others, it may mean going for a drive and seeing what home colors look nice to you or simply make you happy.
  • Home Style and Size  – Whether your home is a Queen Anne, a Cape Cod, or a tiny bungalow, it has distinguishing characteristics that you will want to take into consideration when deciding on colors. Look at the trim, turrets, or architectural items that you would like to highlight in a complementary or coordinating color. Look at homes that are similar in style and size to your home and adjust your color choices accordingly.
  • Test It Out – Always try out a color on your home so you can see just how it will look. This is especially true to see how the light changes the overall look of the color.
  • Ask a Professional – At Jerry Enos Painting, we offer the services of a color consultant who can help you choose a color that you will be pleased with for years to come.
