The outside of your home may look a little shabby and the neighbors are whispering as they pass by. If that is you then it is possible to paint your home exterior so that the neighbors will be jealous of its beauty. Exterior painting for residential homes is usually something that is done by a professional, and this will take some careful preparation work and the perfect color of paint. Choosing that perfect color that will make your exterior come to life can be a little tricky. The following are a few ideas to help you with your choice.
Many individuals cannot visualize their home with a different color of paint, especially if it is a big change. Changing the color of the exterior will also probably mean changing the contrasting or complementary color for things like the trim, shutters and doors. Take a look at the number of items that will be need painting and then decide how many color choices you will need. If you cannot decide how many colors you need to achieve your desired look you can check out some of the neighbors' homes. Usually homeowners will paint their exterior trim with a contrasting or complimentary color to the house siding and then use a third color for the doors and shutters. The exterior trim is usually done in a shade of white but this will depend on the main color choice.
Another consideration in making your color choices is the materials used in the construction of your home and the style of the dwelling. The color of the roof, any existing stone work or bricks all need to be at least tone matched to the new colors. The color you choose should blend with the materials of the home. For an exterior that is all brick, the trim paint should blend with the mortar. In this instance white is not the best choice. The roof color is a big consideration. A house painted yellow would look rather odd with a black roof but would compliment a brown roof.
