Tips on Choosing Exterior Home Colors and Materials

Selecting exterior home colors can be quite difficult. Often it takes years of experience to learn what colors and materials will work together. The average person has never done this before and certainly has no training or professional experience. And choosing the color of paint or the wrong material can be a very expensive mistake that you might have to accept for years (or spend a lot of money to fix it). Here are some tips to help you make the right choice.

Choosing the Right Paint Color

The most common mistake I see in choosing exterior home colors is that the color is too bright. The sun will wash the color outside, so choosing a bright color will end like white. When choosing colors, keep in mind that they usually need to be more gray or brown than you think. For example, the color gray in green will read greener than you usually think when painted throughout the house. If you choose a color and can say ‘now it’s green’, you might have chosen too ‘green’. The main exceptions to this rule will be in more tropical locations such as Florida or other locations where lighter, more reflective colors are desirable to keep the house cool. Here pastel and bright colors can work very well.

Tips for Choosing Window Colors

Many homes have vinyl windows that are usually white. Painting white vinyl with dark paint can be a disaster because of vinyl expansion in the sun. Dark colors will cause vinyl to expand even more than usual, leading to paint and possibly window failure. If you trim white vinyl windows, it’s often best to paint white ones too. That will tend to make vinyl windows mix more, and look more like traditional wooden windows.

If you choose a new window and want to paint your house in a darker color, consider choosing a cream or almond window. Bright white windows on the color of a house that is very dark will usually have too much contrast. If you choose a cream or almond window and paint in a coordinated color, it will work better with a dark paint scheme. There are several manufacturers that produce vinyl gray that can work well with more modern homes or houses with metal siding, or even bricks. Usually, I don’t care about white vinyl in brick houses, except the house is very traditional. That’s the article about exterior home colors.
