Get creative with the
exterior painting of your home!
The exterior walls are one of the most important features of any home because they are the first thing that someone sees when they visit or pass by your house. Maintaining a beautiful exterior is important for the curb appeal of your home and to preserve an attractive look that neighbors will be envious of.

Another important aspect of your home's curb appeal are other outdoor features such as decks, porches, pools, landscaping designs and other exterior aspects of the house. One of the best ways to spruce up the outside of your home or add to its style is to apply a fresh coat of paint.

Almost every outdoor feature of your home can be painted including the deck, pool, concrete and walls.

One of the best ways to determine the color you would like to paint your home is to look at a design gallery of exterior house colors. Looking at images of houses will give you inspiration for your home and provide you with examples of the most popular outside paint colors to choose from. 

Traditionally,the best paint colors for homes are lighter shades of any hue because the pastel colors tend to attract less light and heat than darker ones, preventing sun damage. Great outside house paint colors are neutral shades such as tans, whites, and creams because they work well with simple landscape designs with lots of plants and flowers and highlight the vegetation, rather than taking away from them. However, many homeowners also choose to get a little more festive with their painting, choosing exterior paint color combinations of one main, bright hue with an accent shade that is lighter and complements the home well.

If you are unsure of what colors to choose or combine when painting your home, remember to look at pictures of exterior paint colors to get an idea of what style you would like use.

For those homeowners who are not interested in taking on a huge painting project, keep in mind that other areas of the exterior of the house can be painted as well.
