Choose colors outside the house can be quite a challenge. It often takes years to learn what colors and materials work together. Average person has never done before, and certainly doesn’t training or experience. And choosing the wrong paint color or material can be very expensive mistake you’ll probably take years (or spend lots of money to fix) be. Here are some tips to help you make the right decisions.
Choosing the right paint colors
The most common mistake I see in the selection of outside house paint is that the color is too bright. The sun will wash out the colors, so choice is a light color end up looking like a white. In selecting the colors, the fact that they usually require more gray or brown, to think as you think. For example, gray with a hint of green to green everything you read in the rule to think as if painted on the house. If you choose a color and say “Well, it’s green,” you probably “a verdant green” is selected. The primary exception to this rule would lead to more tropical places like Florida or other places where the lighter more reflective color you want, is to keep the house cool. Here pastels and lighter colors can work very well.
If you have problems with the election of the siding and trim color, count them related to each other, like a cream trim and a darker shade of beige on the same chip color strip. Then add an accent color like a deep eggplant color.
Tips on choosing Window Colors
Many houses have white plastic window in the rule. Painting white vinyl with a dark color can be catastrophic due to growth in the vinyl in the sunlight. The dark color makes it to vinyl increase even more than usual, what to paint and windows may fail. If you cut white vinyl windows, it often works best to cut to paint white. This will tend to blend in more plastic window and look more like a traditional wood window.
When choosing new windows and paint your house a darker color, consider selecting a window, cream or almond color. Bright white window on a very dark house is usually too much contrast. If you choose to almond cream or window, and paint the trim a coordinating color, it will be better with a darker color. There are several manufacturers; the product is gray vinyl that can work well in modern houses or houses with metal or stone cladding. Generally I do not care about white vinyl on brick buildings, unless the house is very traditional. Choice of gray or almond-up almost always looks better. If the budget for clad windows has wood or metal, then you will have many more colors to choose from, and mid-tone darker colors often look better with a brick.
Just because you have a house made of brick, not automatically rule out the paint brick. You do not have the quality of brick, but you will not be the same color, which are many, many houses date fixed. Of course, if you have a Frank Lloyd Wright Mission style brick home, not paint! But most of our houses are not so enthusiastic. Painting brick can really brush up on dark and dark houses. Please keep a good color when painting tiles to be sure to get compatible products.
How to choose the right color accent
This is becoming a place where you do it a little risky, because accent colors are usually limited to smaller areas. I compare this to women who use make-up: The accent color is like putting on mascara and lipstick. But keep it classy! You know, there’s too much make up, woman. The same goes for houses.
How to choose a roof color
When the roof of a house is visible, it can be a very prominent factor. Choosing the wrong color roof is a very costly mistake so it is important to understand some general rules. Consider when choosing a roof, what color the house is painted (or if it is brick or stone, consider the general tone of the material). If the house warmer paint colors, the brown roof right choice. If the house cooler colors (like gray, blue or green), the dark gray roof will function better. If you’re on the roof color first, choose one of the most vers tile and have a choice, a dark gray color. If the house is used to shake the trees have shingles and replace it with a composition shingle, most manufacturers provide a dark brown color that is similar to shake like colors. If you have a metal roof, consider other colors than the traditional green, which works well with log siding on buildings, but not too much else. Again, choose a color that allows you flexibility in house paint colors.
Choose colors can be very challenging. Think you choose it, not from a small chip color! Even trained professionals have large panels painted (or paint directly on the house). Order a bottle of paint several colors and look at the samples in different lighting and different sides of the house. Color can change dramatically in a different light, so the time to pick the right colors. If you do, the results can be amazing transformation.
