Best Colors for Painting Your Home Exterior

Posted on August 27, 2021

There is something about the Spring and Summer months that makes painting your home exterior appealing. One thing that holds homeowners back from going through with their paint job is not being able to choose the right paint color. Our painting professionals have compiled a list of our top three favorite exterior home colors that are trending in 2021. We have painted thousands of homes across America in these colors. If these colors aren’t quite what you’re looking for, our team offers a free color consultation with every project. 

A Classic White

It is hard to go wrong with a white exterior. The classic color looks great on homes of all shapes and sizes around the United States. In a place like Charlottesville, white paint can help make a home look more historic. Some homeowners shy away from choosing white from their home exterior because it has too much of a sterile look. However, creamier whites do a great job of providing the perfect balance between clean and welcoming. 

Modern Black

On the other end of the spectrum, we are seeing a rise in homes painted black. This is especially popular for homes that have wood accents or trim. The sleek color brings a sense of a modern lifestyle. It is also fairly good at hiding damage or problems that are already in your home. We always recommend fixing any problems to your home structure before taking on a paint job. Failure to do so will result in your new paint deteriorating at a quicker rate. 

Soft Pastels

Don’t worry, colors aren’t out of the question. In fact, pastels of all different colors are more popular than ever before. Whether you’re a fan of yellow, pink, blue, or green, you can put it on your home. Pastels are a great way to bring life and personality to your home without being too overwhelming. These bolder colors are a little trickier to get right, though. We recommend working with a color professional to make sure that you get the exact finish you are looking for. 

Going for White Trim

Whatever paint color your chose for the body of your home exterior, don’t forget to paint your trim. White trim is one of the most popular paint trends we have seen the last few years. If you are looking to increase your curb appeal or stick with the painting trends, white trim is the way to go.
