What Color should you Paint Your Home?

Oct 23, 2013 by

Your exterior colors can make or break a sale.  Potential buyers want a home that is distinguished, has curb appeal, and has colors that draw their interest.  Your exterior colors should stand out and make a statement over other homes in the neighborhood.

Neutral Colors

Neutral colors are the preferred choice of colors to help ensure a speedy sale.  Neutral colors work with a number of different colors and shades and don’t upset the color rhythm in the neighborhood.  Blue, light shades of yellow, beige, white and tan are all considered good neutral colors.

Contrasting Colors

Contrasting colors can create a very nice appeal.  For instance, if a majority of the homes around you are white, you might opt to paint your home a light yellow or blue.  The contrast will offset your home from other homes in the neighborhood and make a statement of a home that stands out.

Complementary Colors

Complementary colors are colors and shades that complement the other colors of homes in the neighborhood and work with features outside your home.  For instance, you might have brick walkways, which would be nicely complemented by a light shade of paint or you might paint the front door to your home a slightly darker color.

Get plenty of ideas on colors and shades.  Visit your local paint store for a paint wheel, look in magazines, drive the neighborhood and get ideas online.
