Painting the inside of your home is about personal color choices and creating a cozy atmosphere. The outside of your Palm Beach County home is a little different. For one thing, painting your exterior is about providing an additional layer of protection.
While you should still be able to select a color scheme that you like, the factors that go into the decision making process vary slightly. Fail to realize the importance of making a good decision and you could end up regretting it. Don’t end up stuck with colors you don’t like because a house painting project is usually only carried out once every few years, or so.
It can be easy to be hasty and choose hues based on the mood you are in or a new trend. Yet smart homeowners know that it takes more time and that the look of the exterior effects more than just the visual aesthetics.
Tips for Making the Right Selection
The best way to avoid making mistakes, when it comes to your exterior paint colors is to learn from others. Some of what you need to know and think about includes:
Exterior color choices are about cohesiveness. Think about details such as the landscaping you have in place and even the colors of neighboring homes. Too often, a homeowner selects a color only to realize it clashes with the surroundings, causing the house to stick out like a sore thumb.
Also think about permanent materials. If there are certain existing aspects of your home that are not going to change, such as brick or stone, make choices based on that as well. The hues you choose should blend well with these materials.
Don’t make your choices based on just rock bottom prices. In other words, know that you get what you pay for when it comes to your paint quality, as well as the quality of the paint job. There is nothing wrong with trying to save a few dollars. However, true value means good quality for a fair price, not simply making selections based on the lowest price there is.
Making choices about trim colors is often what becomes a problem. Too often, homeowners simply choose white just because they do not know what else to pick. If you are stuck in this type of predicament, remember that you can always opt to use a lighter shade of the main house color you have selected. This way it will obviously match, it will pop just enough and it will be more interesting than just white.
Avoid trends at all costs. Too often, a homeowner gets caught up in a color fad frenzy and makes major decisions based on this. The problem is that, once the trend is over, you are still stuck with an entire home that is this color. If you are really stuck on the color, at least consider getting a more subdued version that you are less likely to grow tired of.
