When is the last time you thought about your exterior house colours, let alone painted the exterior of your home?

If you’re scratching your head right now and struggling to come up with an answer, it likely means that it’s been too long since the last time it was done.

Did you know you should have the exterior of your home painted every five to ten years or so?

You should also make sure that you pick the best exterior house colours to suit your home and tastes. Take the time to choose exterior house colours that look right on your specific home. That way, you’ll love the finished product until the next time it’s due to be repainted.

Take a look at our tips below to help you choose the right exterior paint colours for your home.

How to choose the best colour combination for your house exterior

When people are in the process of trying to track down the best exterior house colours, they often make the mistake of diving headfirst into the sea of colours available to them. Avoid doing this until later.

Before you do anything else, you should stand outside your home and inspect the different colours that are already on the outside of it. You’re going to be changing the primary colour of your home. Your roof colours, windows, and any brick on the outside of your home will likely remain the same.

The paint colors you choose will need to complement these colours nicely and play off them. If they don’t, the exterior of your house is going to look mismatched once it’s painted.

Choose exterior house colours that are going to work well with the colours that will remain. You’ll be able to rule out some possibilities by taking this approach from the start.
