Choose your own Color Adventure

Selecting the color for the exterior of your home can be daunting, especially without the assistance of a design professional.  The very first piece of information to discern is the effects of sun and wind on your home’s exterior.  Note the amounts of shade and full sun on your home and which direction inclement weather most often travels from.

For homes which receive full sun, particularly if the front façade faces south or west, plan on using a lighter color palette to avoid yearly maintenance and frequent repainting or refinishing.  Whites, cream and neutral colors will work best in these conditions. 

 After that, choose the color adventure that suits your home best using our handy info graphic…
