There are many ways to improve the look of the exterior of your home and not all involve a great deal of money from your savings or intense labor that takes months to complete. One of the best ways to improve the look of your home, add curb appeal and increase the value is exterior paint. Changing the paint on the exterior of your home can give your house a fresh new look. Exterior paint for homes is now available in a wide variety of colors, textures and finishes; giving home owners endless possibilities when it comes to painting the exterior of their home.

Exterior Paint when Selling your Home

If you are getting ready to put your home on the market, or it has been on the market for a while without receiving any serious offers, a new exterior paint job could be just the thing your home needs to get a buyer. When it comes to choosing a color, you may think it is not that big of deal, or will not make that great of an impact, however there is truth to color value. There are specific color schemes that are more attractive to the human eye than others and will make your home look much more attractive. With the help of a professional, you can couple the right colors that will make your home stand out in the best way possible.

Exterior Paint Color Combinations

Choosing the shade of color is just as important as choosing the color itself. Once you are set on a specific color, you then need to determine if it is best to go with a dark shade of that color, a medium shade or a lighter shade. The shade of the color can make all the difference in contrast with the other colors you have decided to use. If there are intricate detailed pop outs on your home, be sure to highlight these areas with a color that is easy to notice. This will add an additional level of charm to the new look of your home.

Avoiding a Top Heavy Look to your Home

Professional painters will tell you to avoid painting your home to look top heavy, or in other words, keep darker colors towards the bottom of your house and lighter colors towards the top. This will improve the look of your home and not give it a “top heavy” look. When picking colors for your home, make sure you test them in the natural light that is exposed to the exterior of your home. Make sure that the paint colors you choose compliment the colors that are around your home, like brick, stone or stucco.
