Plenty of people buy their home with ideas of how they want to customize and change the inside of their new place. Yet, have you thought about how you could freshen up the outside of your new place? If you are buying a home this spring then it’s the perfect time to paint the exterior! Painting your home is a great way to put a stamp on it that fits your personal preferences and makes it truly feel yours. The real challenge is deciding what color is right for your home. Here are some tips from an expert exterior painting Pasadena company.
There are plenty of neutral shades, trendy colors or classics to choose from.When you’re mulling over colors you may feel that a neutral tone would be best for your home and in line with your neighbors or HOA. If that’s the case you may want to reach for a greige (gray beige) as it achieve being contemporary but uniform. Grey and Beige colors on their own can be drab and dreary. However, together they are a complementary blend that that mixes warm and cool.. You may be leaning towards a warmer color option such as a brown hue which can be a great choice.
But what about Brown?
The right brown hues can make your exterior trim and shutters pop with character. You can pair a classic brown color with a cream or white trim for a stylish look that stand outs. However, not everyone like the thought of having a brown home. So, if you aren’t warmed up to the idea of brown you may be more interested in classic white. White has a tendency to always be fresh looking and can make an older home look brand new. To get the right white for your home you won’t want to use a stark white. Using a stark white is an easy way to make your home appear jarring or sterile. Instead look for hues with warmer undertones that pair well with you shutters or door color. If you like creamier white but want to go a few shades deeper you can always opt for a yellow color. To strike the right color you can choose a buttery yellow that isn’t overpowering but can still freshen up the appearance of your home. In the case that those colors aren’t your style, this is where your green and blue hues play a part. A good use of green can be seen with a home comprised of brick. The brick could only look better with a soft green siding or forest green trim accents that made the red/brown of the stone pop out. Blues also looks great as a smokey grey hue with white trimming and its great for warm climates because they won’t fade as quickly as most colors do in the sun. Choose a color you can live with and love for years.
