We are all familiar with the back and forth struggle of trying to figure out the perfect color scheme and style for the exterior of your home and we get it!! It’s a HUGE decision and one that you will live with for many years to come. The curb appeal of your home is a first impression and you want everyone to be wow’d by it and you also want to make a choice that will bolster the value of your property.

What most people don’t realize is that it’s not just about the color. There are many more factors to take into consideration such as the type of siding on your house, the best features of the exterior, matching color and detail to the style of your home you have and more.

So, how do you start?

Some people will choose to emulate the style of their neighborhood. Perhaps you have a designer who will assist you in developing your color scheme. If you’re developing your plan on your own, we recommend having a look at Houzz for inspiration. A local professional painting contractor can advise you on classy color options based on the style of your home. If you live in one of our local historic zones, you may be limited to specific color palettes, which in some ways may make your decision easier!
