Selecting the perfect paint palette for the outside of your home can be stressful. You have a lot of things you need to consider before committing to a color. Here are a handful of professional tips to help you choose the ideal shade.
Look at the neighbors’ houses
Think about what your house will look like side by side with your neighbors’ houses. You may be able to choose whatever color you want, but an out-of-place shade won’t help your curb appeal. Of course, you may also be restricted to certain colors or shades by a homeowner’s association. As a result, you should try to select a color that blends in nicely with your neighbors’ homes, even if you want it to stand out a little bit. This helps to prevent your home from sticking out like a sore thumb in the middle of a classy neighborhood.
Search for inspiration in the yard
When you choose an exterior paint palette, you are likely to leave a lot of items intact. You probably aren’t replacing your landscaping, roof, or driveway all at the same time. Each of these items has its own distinct color that you will need to consider before you start painting the whole property. Search for a little bit of inspiration that can influence the rest of your paint color decisions. You may find a color that inspires you, an undertone that matches beautifully, or a color the complements what you already have. No matter which path you take, you need to allow the other colors in your yard to influence your choice.
Test the color first
Would you ever paint the interior of your home without first testing the paint swatch? Most people aren’t bold enough to attempt this feat, and you shouldn’t try it on the exterior of your home either. Be sure to buy a few paint samples and test them on different areas of the home. You need to make sure it looks good in every light, so stop outside throughout the day to see what you think. This is the only realistic way to choose the perfect exterior paint palette.
