Most people use the new year to create a fresh start in some aspects of their life. There’s no reason why home improvement can’t be part of your improvement plan. If you want to change the look of your house, why not consider repainting your exterior?
Steve Allen Construction of Ocala, Fla. is the go-to place for all your framing, exterior and interior trim carpentry needs. We want to help your home earn serious curb appeal. Keep reading to find out how to spruce up your exterior with different paint combinations.
Dark Brown and Bright Green
This paint palette is fresh and contemporary. The contrast between the dark and light is reminiscent of scout uniforms in summer—all dark brown or black with a green scarf around the neck. For an interesting look that isn’t too harsh, use the green as your primary color, with dark brown as your accent shade.
Light and Dark Khaki
For a calmer, more natural look, you can’t go wrong with light and dark shades of khaki. This combination presents a subtler, more harmonious contrast that reinforces the colors of slate roofs and limestone.
Natural Tan and Sea Blue
If you live by the coast, you’ll definitely want to check out this color palette. Use the lovely sand color on the house’s body and trim. Add a pop of color by applying the bright blue to the shutters.
Light Yellow and Brick Red
If your house is in an area with clay in the ground, this color combination is a great way to help your house fit in. The warm yellow, paired with a metal roof and red shutters, is sure to make your home look naturally stunning.
Deep Red and Dark Green
For traditional American appeal, you can’t go wrong with red and green. Paint your window shutters deep green and apply a high-gloss dark red on the front door. You can paint all solid doors to match the shutters and tie the look together. For a light, fresh twist, splash French doors and trim with an opaque whitewash. Your house will be the envy of the entire neighborhood.
One of the easiest ways to spruce up your exterior is to slap on a new coat of paint. The next time you think about repainting your exterior, we hope you’ll choose one of these color combinations.
