Paint Colors That Go With Brick

The KC Northland area has a lot of brick exterior homes that bring charm and character to our neighborhoods. However, homeowners can find themselves confused when they decide they want to update the exterior of their homes. Pairing paint the right paint color with a home’s brick color can be a stressful task. What works on a red brick home won’t work on a tan brick home, so it is important to pick a shade that will complement your home’s specific brick color.

Our team at CertaPro Painters® of KC Northland has completed countless exterior painting projects on brick homes. Since we see this problem often, we thought it would be helpful to put together a list of some of the best paint colors that go with brick.

Paint Colors and Tips for Red Brick Homes:

  1. Creamy White – If you are set on choosing a white shade to paint with your red brick, stay away from stark cool whites. It will clash with the red brick. Instead, opt for a warm creamy white. Sherwin William’s Shoji White is a good example.
  2. Green-Gray – The green contrasts well with red and will leave you with a classic look. Sherwin William’s Iron Ore is a good example.
  3. Blue – A medium shade of blue looks stunning when paired with a red brick exterior. It brings color and playfulness to the traditional red brick. We would recommend staying away from darker shades of blue to avoid clashing.

Any muted, creamy paint colors will work well with red brick exteriors.

Paint Colors and Tips for Gray Brick Homes:

  1. Black and White – A gray brick home paired with black and white accents look classy and modern. White trim and garage doors and black shutters and a black front door make for a cohesive, unique look.
  2. Tan – A tan shade will make a gray brick home appear softer. This is a good option if you are looking for a more natural, earthy look.

Paint Colors and Tips for Brown Brick Homes:

  1. Earthy Green – Earthy paint colors are very popular now. Choosing a green paint color to pair with your brown brick will add a pop of color.
  2. Neutrals – Any neutral paint color will pair well with brown brick. We personally like tan.
  3. Black – You can’t go wrong with brown and black. This is a more modern option and will make your home stand out.
