Choosing exterior paint colors can be a challenge. But you can go beyond beige and still allow your home to shine by following the advice of exterior paint expert, Mark Masica of Hirshfields.
Your favorite color may have to be on the inside. Make your home your own, but keep in mind that you’re painting the outside for everyone else… Never forget the importance of curb appeal.
Neutral doesn’t have to mean beige. Colors like green can be considered neutral. A simple look to Mother Nature will show that many different shades of green go together. For example, look at all the different bright colors of flowers, yet the foliage is always green. Still not sure? Ask yourself if you have ever looked at someone’s home and said the grass doesn’t go with the trees and shrubs.
Don’t call attention to garage doors. If your garage door/doors are visible from the front of the home, the actual door should be considered part of the body of the home and painted accordingly. You can picture frame the doors the trim color of the home. Why? The focal point of a home should be the front door (unless you plan on asking your guests to join you in the garage!)
