Choosing the right colors for your interior is one thing, and choosing the right home exterior paint colors is another. Unlike the interiors, where you can apply any color you like, exterior colors can affect the entire environment — the street, the front yard, and gardens, and that might put a lot of pressure on you as a homeowner.
In choosing the right paint colors for your home exteriors, you need to consider several things that you don’t have to deal when choosing the interior color palettes, such as hardscaping, landscaping, roofing and more. Here are some ideas to show you the best colors to paint your exterior:
1) Mustard yellow and brown
Yellow exteriors will stun the passerby by reflecting the sunlight. With brown accents, your home will be surely fabulous with a contemporary sense. When you paint your exterior with mustard yellow, honey gold, brown or maybe ochre, you can opt for neutrally stained wood door and windowsills to add statement.
2) Beige and maroon
You can make a bold statement by painting your home exterior in earthy red or maroon, a color that will give your home a traditional touch. For that beautiful red house, paint the doors and shutters in beige to make a right vibe. Your home will be fabulous with a hint of all-American classic style.
3) Ivory and white
If you have a symmetrical home, you can ignite the sense of elegance and heritage by painting the exterior in lighter colors, such as white and ivory, or maybe beige. Also, paint the trim white, and don’t worry to add a pop of color by painting the door in bright aqua.
4) Pale gold and gray
Modern homes maintain a warm, yet minimalist vibe with a neutral palette of brown, gray and gold. You can paint the exterior walls with pale gold or pale yellow, and add some gray or taupe accents on doors and windows. Those color palettes will make your home looks elegant and harmonious, as well as warm and inviting.
5) Sky blue and beige
To make your home looks effortlessly stunning, you can show the exterior texture off by painting it in dark or lighter sky blue colors, trimmed with cream or beige. When the day turns cloudy, your home will absolutely be the brightest on the block!
