While working on your home interior look is crucial, do not forget about the exterior. Having a classic and modern interior touch and a neglected exterior affects the curb appeal of your property.
That said, deciding the perfect custom colors for your home is a daunting task, and at some point, you will need to engage an expert. So, here are some pointers to help you choose perfect custom exterior colors for your home!
While some colors may look perfect for indoor paint, they may have a different look while painted on the exterior. Some outdoor aspects, such as sunlight and landscape, may affect how the light reflects your home exterior paints. So, you can use different color poster boards to test how different colors complement other outdoor aspects.
Stick To Your Style
Each person has a sense of style; you may go for a contemporary or traditional look. So, choose a custom color that complements your style, and if unsure, stick to neutral tones like grey or tans and you can never go wrong with white.
Go For Contrast
Using uniform colors achieves a seamless look, but contrasting colors create an epic look. Depending on the level of contrast needed, you can choose a mix in color (refer to a color palette) to bring out the contrasting effect and beauty.
Consider The Non-Painted Surfaces
Other outdoor aspects such as roof, stones, gutter system, or bricks will affect your choice of colors. If the elements have underlying tones such as green, red or blue, you have to choose an exterior paint that will not clash.
Consider Your Landscape
Your home’s exterior includes not only the siding and roofing but also the landscape, patios, and driveways. All these aspects should be in unison, and the color of your home exterior should complement the other elements of your landscape.
However, if you live in an area with HOA guidelines and regulations, there may be some limitations to staying within. So, before you settle on a given design and color to your exterior, confirm with your local regulations to ensure you remain within their stipulated guidelines.
