2019 Guide to Home Exterior Paint Colors

Posted on August 23, 2019

Foxboro, MA Home Exterior Painting

Color isn't the only factor when it comes to choosing your home's next exterior paint job, but it's certainly the most fun element. Choosing your exterior paint color is a way to express your sense of style and boost your home's curb appeal. Sometimes it helps to know the trends, whether your plan is to follow them or break them. When it comes to exterior paint colors, the trends often change from year to year. Here are a few colors that stand out this year.


There's something soothing about the color opal, which must be why so many homeowners are choosing it for their exterior walls in 2019. It has a homey look while remaining a cool, airy sort of color. Opal pairs well with white trim and lighter colored roofs, as well as with pale yellows for a warmer effect.


Sometimes there is merit to playing it safe. White colored houses are typically inoffensive, but choosing off-white adds a bit more depth of color, while still showing your home as more traditional and stylistically versatile. Off-white colors work best with classic style homes, and are best off-set with a darker trim and dark roof to create a bold contrast. This is also a great time to have a bright red or deep blue painted door to stand out.


Yellow is not a color you see used for exterior walls often, so it draws the eye, but it does so in a pleasant way. Yellow screams cheerful, or whispers it if you opt for a soft, pastel yellow like lemon. Use white trim to get the most out of the happy-go-lucky aesthetic, but yellow suits just about any color of roof.

Ocean Blue

The right paint color can be transportive. Ocean blue is a perfect example that you don't have to stick to light paint colors in order to have a stylish home. It has the calming elements of blue, but a strong character that evokes feeling and a sense of place. Here again, lighter colored trims make for a great contrast, but grey trims and dark colored roofs work well, too. A deep red door is a perfect companion to this sea-like exterior paint color. 

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your paint color options, but it may spark some inspiration when it comes to your home. Need a paint contractor who will handle your exterior paint with expert care? Contact No Risk Painting today.
