Exterior House Paint Red DoorChoosing a paint color for the exterior of your home can be a daunting task. It’s hard to decide what color you want to look at for the next 10 years – and it’s got to look good with the architecture of your home, the other homes in your neighborhood, and your landscaping. To help make the decision a little easier, Three Brothers Painting suggests three things to keep in mind when searching for the right exterior house paint color. 

Talk to the Homeowners Association First

This is the most important step to choosing your house’s exterior color if you live in a neighborhood. Some homeowner associations have specific colors that you have to choose from, while others might just have a general color scheme, while again others may have no specifications at all. Either way, it is good to check first. Plus, this could make your decision a whole lot easier if there are a limited number of colors to chose from!

Choose the Right Color for Your Architecture

Some architectural styles call for specific color schemes. Victorian style houses look great in bolder color that plays up their details. Traditional homes typically look best with neutral tones of gray of or taupe. Contemporary homes are playing up their style with neutral siding colors and a bright red front door.

Call in a Professional

Almost all paint manufacturers offer color consultants that can help you decide on your exterior house paint color. You could also call on the expertise of an architect or interior designer. Just remember, that if choosing the exterior paint color for your home seems overwhelming, there are professionals available to help.
