You don’t want to ignore any of these three elements when choosing colors for your house. The history of your house will determine what type of color scheme is appropriate. For example, if you choose bright colors, this will most definitely class with a historical style home.

Your architectural elements will help guide your decisions in the same way. If you have a particular color of roof, you’ll want to pick a color that compliments it. Same with other exterior elements of your home such as a stone facade.

The other important thing to pay attention to might be surprising: your neighbors. You don’t want your house to stick out like a sore thumb, so you should be sure to choose exterior paint that will give a pleasant curb appeal when paired with your neighbors.

If you mind these two main guidelines for choosing your exterior paint colors, you should be pleasantly surprised with the results. If all else fails, trust professionals like Penington Painting Company to help guide your home painting process.
