3 Tips For Choosing Paint For Your Home’S Exterior


As a homeowner, one of the most enjoyable aspects of home improvement is choosing the perfect paint color. It’s an opportunity to showcase your unique style and personality while making your place feel like home. However, that feeling gets lost if you choose a color that clashes with your house’s features or doesn’t fit with its surrounding environment. That’s why it’s important to consider every aspect of your project before you choose paint colors for your exterior — including factors such as weather conditions, existing color schemes on neighboring houses or buildings, current trends in interior design, and even the direction where sunlight hits at certain times during the day.

Consider the Exterior of Your Home

When you’re choosing paint for your home’s exterior, it’s important to look at the entire structure. If it’s a house with lots of windows and doors, there will be many different colors on display. If it’s a small apartment building with no windows or doors (like mine), there may only be one or two colors visible from the street.

Once you’ve made note of what colors are already in place, think about how they make you feel when you see them every day–and whether those feelings are positive or negative! Do they put you in a good mood? Do they make you want to move in? Or do they just remind you that this is not where your life is meant to be?

Choose a Based on Color Palette

Choosing a color for your exterior can be overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be! Here are some tips on how to choose the right exterior paint color:

  • Choose a based on the color of your house. If you have an older home with original siding, try choosing a base coat that matches the existing wood tone as closely as possible so that there aren’t any noticeable differences between new and old sections of siding.
  • Choose based on shutter colors (if applicable). If you have black shutters with white trim, then consider painting those areas white instead of black so they stand out against darker shades like green or blue hues in order not distract from other aspects such as doors or windows when viewed from afar

Picking paint based on your home’s exterior and color palette is an easy way to accentuate your home.

To choose the right exterior paint, consider the following:

  • Choose a paint that complements the color palette of your home’s exterior.
  • Consider whether you want to enhance or minimize elements of your home’s facade. For example, if you have a lot of brickwork or stonework around windows and doors, it might be best not to use white as an accent color because this will emphasize those features instead of blending them into the background of greenery surrounding them.


We hope you’ve found some inspiration in these tips.
