Whether you're in the market looking to buy or sell, or to own or lease out a property, curb appeal plays a central part of the decision.

And one of the easiest ways to address curb appeal is to change or improve your exterior paint colors. 

Here are 8 tips to help you choose your exterior paint colors:

  1. Accentuate the Past - If you have the help of a designer--and most of the professional or contractor paint shops offer such an expert--then ask him or her to find paint samples from the era in which your home was built.
  2. Be Aware of Neighbors' Exterior Paint Colors - Will the colors you are leaning towards fit in the overall feel of the neighborhood? Can you manage to be unique without being the eyesore?
  3. Structural Harmony with Rest of the House - Structural elements such as roof color/material, landscaping, and natural surroundings can suggest color families to help you decide your exterior paint colors.
  4. The Inside Affects the Outside - Don't be afraid to pull the colors for your home from a beloved piece from inside (a quilt, some china,) and translate it onto your exterior. This adds a sense of harmony and integrity in design, and can be as subtle or obvious as you'd like.
  5. White House: The Color of Tradition - With the right complementary touches, white can be a fantastic exterior paint color option. Don't think of it as a last resort or a default color; white is not a non-choice. White has its stately appeal.
  6. Darker Details Draw the Eye In - If you have an archway or trim, or any particular feature you want highlighted, draw attention with darker colors.
  7. Consider the Number of Colors - Adding too many colors to a home that's really designed to have a maximum of 3 or 4 colors will make the home look garish. The right home can have as many as 10 colors, but this requires the keen eye of a professional designer to make it work.
  8. Take Advantage of Color Tools - At the very least, you will need to pick up a handy paint tool commonly called a color wheel or color fan. Ask your dealer if they can loan you a fan, or if you can take some samples once you think you're decided.
