Exterior Color Palettes for Home

Inviting Colors

There are so many exciting new exterior color palettes for your home. Do you like white or light colors? Or are you drawn to medium or dark shades? Do you want a bright happy front door? When choosing the right palette make sure to look at:

  • Your roof color
  • Brick or stone color and tones
  • How much sunlight your home gets
  • Gutter color

These 4 details are important because you can pull tones or colors out of these to use for trim color, and making sure the palette you pick won’t clash. Also, if your home gets a lot of shade you may be happier choosing a color 2 couple shades lighter than you originally thought. And the opposite is true if your home gets full sun.

Let’s explore some beautiful color palettes for your home exterior.
