The Top 3 Exterior House Color Schemes

When we begin repainting our homes, we often focus on the interiors. But the exterior of our homes is just as important. In fact, it may be even more important if you’re planning to sell your home. After all, the exterior appearance of your home will be the first impression potential buyers will receive.

While there are many color schemes for you to choose from, here we discuss the top three that will ensure your home looks the best:exterior of home


If you want a dash of color across your home, but also don’t want anything too jarring, then consider a blue color scheme. Shades of blue are calming and inviting. Not only that, but a blue color scheme will blend will with almost any environment. Add some white accents to achieve a clean appearance or a bright blue front door for something that will truly pop.


Neutral color schemes are the best option if you plan on selling your home in the near future. Why? Because neutral colors are the most appealing to the widest range of people. Beiges and grays are your typical neutral colors, but you can also add in blacks and whites as accents.


A monochromatic color scheme depends on a single hue. This kind of color scheme can be tricky, as you run the risk of your exterior appearing boring or dated. Nevertheless, if done correctly, you will have a beautiful home. To do this, paint your accent pieces either a few shades lighter or darker than your main color. You can also use a complementary color for your accents to achieve a bit more pop.
