Choosing exterior colors for your house can be one of the biggest design decisions you ever make, as they're a major factor in its overall look and feel. Luckily, there are a few tips and tricks you can follow to make the decision less daunting.
When choosing a color palette for your home, there are three elements to consider: the main or field color, the accent color and the trim color. Scope out your neighborhood for field color inspiration; if your neighbors’ homes feature mostly muted hues, neutrals and earth tones will be your best bet so your house doesn’t look out of place. Accent colors are where you can have some fun; consider pairing a white or gray field color with a bold yellow front door, or a brown or beige field color with cheerful green shutters. For the trim, white looks clean and crisp against just about any exterior, but brown, black and gray can also complement many color schemes.
Now that you know the basics, browse the following exterior house colors (with paint color recommendations) and get inspired to spruce up your home’s curb appeal.
