The problem with picking a color to paint the exterior of your home is that everyone will see if you made a bad choice. Your taste, whether good or bad, will be on display for the world to see. The thought of that just made you nervous about picking out your home’s new colors. Fear not, our fellow homeowners, for we have created a list of tips to help you avoid the potential public embarrassment of choosing lousy exterior colors.
Unlike interior color selection, exterior hues can quite literally affect an entire neighborhood. This puts a ton of pressure on homeowners when it comes to choosing a palette. Additionally, there are many factors that need to be taken into consideration like landscaping and roofing and how these affect color choices. Indeed, painting your Fort Collins or Loveland home isn’t as simple as you are led to believe.
Unless you plan on doing some very expensive renovations, your roof tiles, stonework and landscaping will remain the same, something you need to consider when choosing the right colors for your home. If your roof shingles or tiles don’t happen to match the new color of your home, you will be left looking the fool.
You may also want to consider your home’s architectural style as well as era it represents. Whether you reside in a Victorian bungalow or a modern ranch style home, your color should compliment the appropriate style. That is, burnt orange on a Victorian house just won’t cut it.
Taking the time and effort to choose your exterior colors will ensure you don’t become the laughing joke of the neighborhood.
