When selecting colors for your home's exterior consider the following tips. However, always remember that the final decision should be the one that you like best.
- Find a dominant color that you like or wish to keep on the house. This could be the color of brick or stone, prefinished windows, or the roof.
- Consider how simple or complex you want your color scheme to be. Simple schemes appear more serene, whereas more complex schemes are more dramatic and energizing.
- Use accent or contrasting colors to bring focus to architectural details. This can help to accentuate your home's unique features such as specialty trim or a front door.
- Pay attention to the neighboring homes, natural geography, or environment. This can help your home to blend into the landscape or stand out.
