Do you want to paint your house, but don't know where to start? Painting your house is a great way to make it stand out from the rest of the homes in your neighborhood. Painting also increases curb appeal and provides a fresh look. Painting can be overwhelming for those who do not have any experience with DIY projects like this, but we have created an easy-to-follow guide that will help you paint your home quickly and without hassle.
Painting your home is a time-consuming project, and it can be prohibitive if you are not in the mood to commit. Painting is very much an art form that will take some practice before you get things just right.
Painting Colors for Exterior of House
The first question people have when they paint their home is what color should I choose? The best way to answer this question would be by asking yourself "What do I want my home's personality?" Some popular options include white (neutral), black (bold) or reds/oranges/yellows which gives your home more character. To decide on a perfect color though, we recommend opening up Google Images and searching for other homes with similar shades as yours.
Painting Your Front Door a Bright Color
One thing you can do with your exterior is paint your front door a contrasting color, such as red or black. Painting your front door will not only give it more attention; but also allow people who are standing at their homes' doors to know what they're getting themselves into before opening them up and stepping in! Painting an accent color on one side of the doorway (or both) will highlight this area for visitors when entering
the home, where we have guests over and introduce our family members/friends and show off that special room inside. This effect will provide plenty of emphasis while still maintaining balance throughout the design scheme. Painting the shutters, trim and other doors in a contrasting color will also create more depth.
Paint the Trim and Shutters a Contrasting Color
Painting outside of the lines isn't just something we promote when painting our nails; it's also a great way to spruce up your exterior. Painting the trim and shutters in different colors will make them stand out more against the white or other color you choose for your house, while also providing some added contrast with each other which gives another level of depth. When choosing paint colors, don't be afraid to mix things up because that's what makes this project fun!
Painting Areas of the Home Bright/Bold Colors
Another trick is using multiple bright or bold colors throughout different areas on your house such as around windows, doorways or along pathways. Painting key "high-traffic" spots can add life to an area and give it personality. You could even paint a "coat of arms" on the front door for a little fun. Painting your backyard can also be an idea to create more space and give it personality; whether you do this before or after is up to personal preference, but painting will increase curb appeal!
