If you're looking to make a change to your exterior home color, why not make a bold statement. Do something that no one else is doing. Your house will surely stand out. And you're sure to love it, too.
White: The Old Standby That's New Again
Yes, you will look around and see many white houses out there that look old and dated. But white can make a beautiful, bold statement. It looks great on any style of home, and pairs well with wood, brick, and stone. The key is to go with a minimalist style, keeping colored trim very low key or all white.
Black: Yes, You Heard Me!
I can tell you think that black would be depressing, too dark, and somewhat sinister. But it's anything but when done well. Black takes even the most humble house into the stratosphere of high style. Keep the style of your house simple, and let the color do all the talking.
Navy Blue: A Nautical Feel
Navy blue lends a nautical feel to any home, regardless of whether it's near water or not. You can't go wrong with crisp white trim. Nave pairs well with red brick and makes a nice backdrop for a bold front door color.
Red: Be Bold
If you really want to make a statement, go with a red house. Just like a power tie, red draws attention and shows that you are confident in your color choices. Red pairs well with crisp white trim and dark colors equally well. Tie in some stone and wood, and you'll have a showstopper.
Step out with confidence on your house color and don't be like the rest of the pack. Go with what you love and you will never regret it.
