In Outside colour trends

Whether you are thinking about your property’s kerb appeal, or you just want to try and make your home look much closer to your dream house, you will at some point have to think about the colour scheme that you are using throughout the home, and in particular on the outside of the building.

Getting this exterior colour scheme right is something that can actually be very challenging, and yet it is so important that you really don’t want to overlook it if you can help it. In this article, we are going to take a look at some basic advice to help you figure out what colour scheme might be right for your house. That should mean that you will have a much better looking home in no time.

Take A Tip From The House Itself

If you are struggling with this, one of the best ways to think about how to choose a colour is to look at the house itself and see if there is anything that might tip you off about what kind of colours you should choose. You might find that this becomes obvious once you start looking, or you might at least end up with a stronger sense of what direction you should start looking in. If you want your home to look more grounded, for instance, you might want to consider darker colours for the base, or if you want it to stand out more then you can be sure that a big, bold, bright colour is going to do that for you much more effectively. Likewise, if there are parts of the building that are somehow standalone or piecemeal, you might colour those differently from the rest.

Looking at the house itself is an important part of this process, so make sure that you are not overlooking this essential thing. You should find that you can much more effectively choose the appropriate colours for your home as long as you have looked at it this way.

Consider The Neighbours

Of course, you might not want your home to be really stand-out in the street. For one thing, depending on where you live this might breach some kind of code that you would be better off not breaching. Or you might find that you actually quite like some of the colours that your neighbours have, and you want to borrow them to use on your own home. However you approach it, considering the houses of your neighbour is always something that you are going to want to do as you look into figuring out this colour scheme for your home. It might be that you main inspiration ends up coming from looking at your neighbours’ homes.

Borrow From The Natural World

One of the most likely and effective means of choosing colours for your home’s exterior is to look at the natural world for inspiration. As in many kinds of artistic designs, looking to nature is very often a good way to go, as it tends to have a way of ensuring that you have colours which are going to look good to the naked eye. There is just something comforting about natural colours which means that your home is going to be a much more beautiful place for you to live in, so that is something that you will certainly be glad for. Whether that means going for mossy greens and luscious browns, or the blue of a clear sky, is entirely up to you – but in any case, it is a way in which you are bound to end up with something that looks amazing.


Whether or not to pay attention to trends is of course up to you. But if you feel that you would quite like to do so, then you should find that you need to look at what kind of trends are going on, and try to decide how much or how little you want to follow them. You can follow a trend some of the way, all of the way or not at all – but you need to be clear on which of these you are following.

Get Professional Advice

Of course, one of the best ways that you can try to decide on what colour scheme is right for your home’s exterior is to get in touch with a professional colour consultant, who will be able to give you advice that you can’t easily get anywhere else. Often, this is all you need to do to really get to the bottom of it.
