You can paint your home in nearly every color imaginable. This can make selecting a color when you are looking to have your exterior painted challenging and overwhelming. You want to select a color that enhances the beauty of your home, fits in with the overall design and look of your home, compliments the other elements on your home, such as the roof and garage door, and is a color scheme that fits in with the rest of your neighborhood. When you are looking to complete an exterior painting project, looking toward paint trends can help you pick a color. Here are some of the top exterior paint trends in 2019.
Neutrals are always popular options for painting a home. Neutral colors are timeless, and they fit in in any neighborhood. Another advantage to neutral colors is that they match most accent colors. This allows you to pair them well with colored roofs, colored garage doors or colored front doors. Some of the most popular neutral colors in 2018 include gray, beige and what is known as greige, or a grayish-beige color.
Light paint colors are often popular in warmer climates. Lighter paint colors can help keep the home a little bit cooler, as darker colors retain heat. Just like with neutral colors, lighter colors allow you to pair many different accent colors with your home. Lighter colors also put your landscaping on display, which is perfect for those who want their grass, trees, flowers, or even paver driveway to be the focal point of the home. White, off-white, light blue and light gray are all popular light colors this year.
Dark colors can really make your home pop and stand out. Dark colors also hide dirt stains well, which can help you to keep your home looking cleaner longer. Many people select dark colors to use as an accent color, but you can also paint the exterior of your home in a dark color if you prefer. Some of the most popular dark colors include blue, green and grays. If you are selecting a dark color as the base for your home’s exterior, keep the other colors used on your home, such as the garage door, roof, gutters and doors, light. This helps to balance your home and keep it from looking too dark.
