Bold Colors

Exterior color paint of house ideas

The exterior paint of our homes may make or break the image if the wrong color combination is used. Colors ranging from pale pastels, to darker hues even to bolder ones all work if the combination of neighborhood, design of the house and decoration all come together. Having a brick exterior wall or stonewall could do a lot to help plan for the exterior color as you could base the color to be used on the colors that they have. Be that as it may, whatever exterior color you may choose that could set you on fire; we’ve some tips from designers themselves to help you make the right choice.

You will never go wrong with the natural color of wood that may be given a coat of varnish to make it look shiny. The grains of the wood give the house a statement and having them all on the walls would make it look fantastic.

If the house is made of different types of material, it would be well to give them the colors that best flatter them. Flat panels usually go for pastel colors while shingles want a brighter hue.

3. Fading Shingles

Shingles tend to fade as they age and may not have the dark colors that they had when still new. For fading shingles, a bright color needs to be contrasted to make the house look updated. White is usually the best color to use and very effective in big columns or posts of the house.
