You’ve had a rough day at work, and you’re on your way home. As you pull up to the house after a long commute, instead of feeling the stress of the day melt away, the outdated, chipping paint reminds you that you still have projects on your plate. The exterior paint on your house needs to be replaced, but what should you choose? It can be difficult to stay on top of what’s popular and “in” right now. Read on to learn about painting trends you’ll want to consider this year.
Warm, Creamy Whites
Although you should never use a bright, true white as a main color on exterior walls (because the glare alone would be blinding), a warm and creamy white provides the right kind of contrast to wood textures and tones.
Beige is a common go-to choice, but gray provides an alternative that is still pleasing the eye. Consider grays with warm undertones and hints of green. In certain lighting, this paint color can have a calming effect, which everyone could use when coming home, right?
Accent Colors of Pale Blue and Green
There’s something interesting yet soothing about pale green and blue that can turn your house into a home. These colors are perfect for trim, windowsills, and other accent areas.
Using Two Tones
Split-level, ranch style homes are gaining popularity, and these provide the perfect setup to utilize more than one main color. Choose complementary colors that work well together and can stand on their own, especially if you’re going to paint the top part with one color and the bottom with the other.
Black as a Main or Accent Color
Want to really make a strong statement? You can use black or a super dark, moody shade of gray. This trend is making a comeback and can help your home stand out in your neighborhood.
Slate or Navy Blue
Perhaps you would like to have a unique color without veering too far from a reliable neutral color scheme. Slate blue, which combines blue and gray, provides this perfect matchup. Or, you can opt for a deep navy blue, which works well on many kinds of house styles.
Not only is the exterior of your home the first thing everyone sees, but it can also serve as a beautiful welcome for you when you’re returning. With a stunning paint job on the outside of your house, you’ll be ready to relax and enjoy your free time before you open the front door.
