Finding the Right Exterior Colour for Your New Home

When you’re nearing completion on a custom home build, one of the most important finishes that ties a home together is the colour of the exterior. With so many options to choose from, you can pick the colour that is right for your wants, needs and design of the home. But what colour is that if you’re unsure? Are you having a hard time figuring out which colour would be best for the exterior of your home? If so, don’t fret because we here at Lions Den Construction want to help you decide with our advice below.

Always Factor In The Roof

Regardless of what colour you end up deciding on, one of the most important things to be certain of early on is that the colour you choose goes well with the colour of your roof. If you choose a colour without considering this aspect and you find that these two don’t go well together, you’ll have wasted a lot of your precious time.

When you have an idea of some of the colours you’d want, make sure you take a photo of your roof (or look at your roof from the outside) and match the paint swatches of the colours you want with the roof. If they look good together, you can then confidently begin the process of applying the colour knowing it won’t look mismatched.

Do The Same With Your Other Outdoor Materials

While matching your home’s colour with the roof is always deemed important, make sure you do the same with other outdoor features as well. This means things such as stairs, stair railings, fences,window panes, etc. When all is said and done, you want every component of your home’s exterior to mix properly and create a warm, welcoming aesthetic. If your home features are more muted in colour, or they are made of wood, it might be easier to find a colour you’re happy with as it’s likely these two factors won’t clash as much.

Take Inspiration From Your Environment

One of the best ways to find the perfect colour for the outside of your home is by taking a look at the environment around you. Are you surrounded by greenery? Maybe the other homes next to yours are a specific type of colour? Maybe you have a certain plant, flower bush or tree that you want to match with in terms of colour? Regardless of the way you want to blend your home into the environment, there are really amazing ways to make your home look its most beautiful in the area it’s placed in. Taking into consideration the colours outside of your home really help bring that idea of cohesiveness together.
