Home is where the heart is or in this case, heart is where the home is. But is it that easy? Your house, needs to have those certain qualities in it to fulfill anyone’s desire of a home. The desired shape, the desired exterior color etc. a balance of all your wishes is what makes the house fit. So, what is the exterior color of your house? That rustic old brown that is now just brown? The blue that is so faded that it looks light sky blue rather than the royal you so adored? Take a deep breath. Having your exterior painted isn’t that hard, once you figure out what color you want. However, the color choosing; that is what you might need help with. Not to worry, my advice is just around the corner.
Choosing the Perfect Exterior Color For Your Home!
Go back in time
Nothing screams ancient, rusticity than an exterior color which reminds you of history. Choosing colors, if needed, with the help of a pro, that will bring the history to the present can make your house stand out from the other modern houses next door.
Brighten up your day and night by coloring your once historic house and blending it with the modern exterior color of the present. Dramatize the architectural details but however do keep in mind that a neon green house might not look best in a quiet and conservative neighborhood. But maybe in Vegas, continue!
Love thy neighbor
Well, the grandpa and grandma next door might not be too thrilled when you tell them your “neon green” plan. Also, you might not be thrilled with their cold, grey colored house too. Consider both your ideas and color something that will not only suit you all, but also the whole neighborhood. As they say, love thy neighbor!
Take advice from Mother Nature
She is kind of the mother, so try to adapt a few things from her too. See whether that gorgeous, oh so gorgeous brown color of the tree will make your house feel like a nature friendly nest or whether that blood red flower makes you think of a house with the same color, only bigger and better. There are many colors out there and many exterior color choices, without those colors the world would be a sad one. So, go to the beach and you might find more variety of colors in those little gathering of corals rather than the color list you see in the papers every day.
Light or Dark
Dramatic or just plain, simple and peaceful? Light exterior color will definitely add size to your house but however don’t hold back if dark speaks you. Make the house be a reflection of what you prefer whether it’s Victorian era or the White House itself!
Balance is key
Don’t go overboard just because you can. Focus on the details of the paint and see what suits the house the most. Balance the exterior color on the windows, walls, doors etc. and it will strike anyone who pass by.
