Spruce Up Your Home with These Exterior Colors!
If you’ve found the time to refresh your home’s look, then you’re probably inclined to paint. Use these exterior color suggestions to rejuvenate your home’s curb appeal!

Now that we are in October, the end of the year is quickly approaching. Many monumental events have shaped this tumultuous year, but we have almost made it through to the other side: the promised land of 2021. If you’ve found the time to refresh your home’s look, then you’re probably inclined to paint. Use these exterior color suggestions to rejuvenate your home’s curb appeal!

Combining Black and White 

Nothing is simpler than using the classic tandem of black and white. Imagine a house clad all in white, but complemented by its exterior colors being dressed in black. The doors, windows, trim, balcony rails, and the gutters being designed this way can help make your home the most eye-catching one on the block. Plus, these exterior colors are relatively easy to get from most reputable suppliers and vendors. 

Pairing Similar Tones and Shades

Another idea is to try mixing and matching a color palette that is not only complementary but also nearly identical. The foundations don’t always have to be the same as the roof; experimenting with the right tones and shades can refresh the way your home looks, especially if you want to emphasize the pillars and columns surrounding your front stoop.  

Using Warmer Tones Instead

There is no doubt that the weather is cooling down – although September is the first blush of fall, October is when the autumn swoon really begins. That’s why it can be a pleasant surprise when you utilize warmer tones as the basis of your exterior color choices. In order to make this look truly pop though, contemplate making the window trim a different color than the rest of the outside elements.  

Playing the Blues All Over Again 

You may not be accustomed to seeing a home that’s been painted a robin egg blue. Even so, that vibe is perfectly valid and can stand out even better when the window trim is painted as strong purple. White, cream, dark grey, and black can exude an exciting flair that shows off the contemporary design of your home.  

Accentuating the Vibrancy of Red 

Red is a lucky color, you know. One of the best reasons to use red as the primary scheme for your abode’s exterior color is that it is timeless. In other words, it’ll always be on-trend. For best results, accentuate the fierce crimson with some pale trim while considering that the opacity provided by a darker roof can be a way to wow all of your neighbors.
