How to Select Exterior Colors

  • When selecting exterior paint colors, take the fixed colors into account (like the roof, brick, stonework or any stained wood), and make sure all the colors look good together.
  • Light colors will make a small house seem larger, and dark colors will make a large house seem smaller.
  • A large, boxy house can be broken up by using a trim color that contrasts the body color.
  • A small house will appear larger if the trim is painted the same color as the body of the house.
  • Light colors will help keep a home cooler in warmer climates, because they absorb less heat. Dark colors will help keep a home warmer in cooler climates, because they absorb more heat.
  • Because light colored paint films absorb less heat, they will generally last longer than darker colored paint films.
  • Some communities have restrictions on what colors can be used on house exteriors, so check this out before you make your choice.
