4 color schemes for home exteriors

Your property’s exteriors are a direct reflection of the home’s style and design. It is also the first thing your guests see when they come over for a visit. Your home’s architecture and garden landscaping set the tone for what is yet to come. However, these features are difficult to change or renovate. 

Neutral colors such as beige, cream and mocha are fail-safe colors that adhere to timeless tradition.

Repainting is the easiest and quickest way of updating your exteriors. Try these creative color schemes for a fresh new look. 

1. Black and white

Black and white offers a timeless appeal unlike any other color scheme. With a modern house architecture, the effect is sleek and masculine. This palette can also work for traditional architectural styles and bring a fresh and unexpected element to classic design. Use black for doors and trimming, and use white on most other parts of the home exterior. 

2. Classic neutrals

Neutral color palettes are classic choices for a reason. Neutral colors such as beige, cream and mocha are fail-safe colors that adhere to timeless tradition. Opting for neutrals imparts a classy first impression. 

3. Sand and aqua

Evoke the ambiance of a beach home with a sand and aqua color scheme. This unconventional palette makes for a relaxing look you’d love to come home to everyday. Use aqua as an accent color and sand for the exterior walls. For a more streamlined effect, use white for trimming. 

4. Gray hues

Bringing sophisticated style to a home, gray exterior colors create a mature and sleek vibe. You can’t go wrong with this color palette, since grays are less likely to clash with each other. This color scheme is best suited for mid-century modern homes.
