What Color Should You Paint Your Home?
December 21, 2012 admin 23 Comments
The color a person chooses to paint their home reveals a lot about them. For example, a cream colored house may represent a more traditional family. On the other hand, a house that is painted a bright lime green would indicate owners who are more radical. What color is your home? Is it time to make a color change?
What home colors do you admire?
When considering a new shade of paint for your house, the first things you’ll want to take into consideration are the homes that you love. Take a drive through your favorite neighborhoods and snap photos of your “dream” homes. Ask yourself what home color combinations you admire and would like to have for your own house.
What do you want your home to convey?
When choosing a new color for your house, you may want to ask yourself what you want your home to convey. In other words, what do you want your house to say about you or your family? If you are very traditional, perhaps colors such as beige, cream, and eggshell would be good choices. If you are more out-of-the-box, consider colors such as pink, yellow, red, and brighter shades of traditional hues.
Blue – the “color of the year” for 2013.
Apparently, blue is the “color of the year” for 2013. This shade may be a perfect choice for someone who loves to follow trends. Blue would also work for families who simply love the color or want to give their home a beach cottage feel.
How to decide on a paint color for the exterior of your home
Once you have an idea of the exterior home colors/color combinations you like, buy a small amount of the paint shades and give them a try. Once you have a chance to see these colors on your house during all times of the day,you will begin to have an idea of the color you will ultimately choose.
Your home should be a place where you can be yourself. Color really impacts how you feel about your home – that’s why it’s important that interior and exterior paint shades are chosen with care. Have fun choosing paint colors that will revitalize both you and your house.
