3 Questions to Ask When Choosing a Color for Your Exterior

Posted on October 18, 2017

Professional House Painting in Portsmouth, NH

Once you've found a trusted contracting company for outdoor house painting in Portsmouth, the only thing left to choose is the color of the new paint job. That may feel like an overwhelming decision, but luckily there are ways to narrow down which tones will work for your home. Use these guiding questions to help you pick the perfect shade.

1. Will It Match?

Many homes feature some permanent materials in their construction, such as brickwork, natural wood, or stone. Draw inspiration from these when choosing a shade for your home. Even if the walls of your house are entirely composed of siding that you plan to paint, there are always features you can look to for guidance. Roofing, lighting fixtures, and gardens can provide references to which you can match the new paint color.

2. What Impression Do You Want to Make?

Outdoor house painting in Portsmouth is an opportunity to change the look of your entire property. Make sure to think about how you want your house to appear. Light colors are likely to make your home appear larger and help it stand out from the surroundings. Dark colors, on the other hand, create a smaller, more subdued look that help your home blend in.

3. Does It Suit the Look of the Neighborhood?

You're not the only one who sees your home every day. Consider how your home fits into the neighborhood when picking a color for the exterior. Overly bright shades may not be the best choice for a crowded suburban street, but you don't want an exact match to the house next door either.
