How to pick your color?

Choosing the right paint color for your home's exterior is a significant decision that impacts your home’s curb appeal and its integration with the surrounding environment. Here are some steps to guide you through the process:

  • Consider the Architecture: The style of your home can influence the color choice. For instance, earth tones might complement a Craftsman-style home, while a Victorian might call for bolder, more varied color schemes.
  • Look at the Roof: Coordinate with the color of your roof. The paint color doesn't have to match the roof, but it should harmonize.
  • Observe the Landscape: Consider the colors of the natural landscape around your home. Choose colors that complement the surroundings without clashing.
  • Take Note of Fixed Elements: Pay attention to any fixed elements that won’t change, like stonework, bricks, driveways, and pathways. Your color choice should work well with these elements.
  • Check Regulations: If you live in a neighborhood or specific region of the country, there might be rules about paint colors.
