So it's about time again to repaint your home outside. But how do you choose exterior house paint colors? This can be a real headache of indecision. If you pick a wishy-washy color probably none of the trim work will contrast with it. If you pick a very strong vibrant color and contrasting trim color in the home might look like a place out of Alice in Wonderland which again is not good. This may bring your neighbors knocking at your door.

Taking great colors will show the best features of your house or hide some of the worst features of your house. But the question is what are these colors.

1. You can hire a pro for paint consultation

2. You may want to look at your neighbors house and see if you want to potentially use some ideas from his house paint colors

3. Something to consider is look at your roof color / your brick color / siding color. These colors will establish a baseline for picking a color to harmonize with them.

4. Considering the house look at how many detailed features you have on its and you might want to paint these different features different colors for example shutters, moldings, doors, porch decks, pillars. These are all some things you might want to highlight with color to make them stand out.

5. I suggest walked to the front of your house look at it from a distance and keep in mind to make sure that you are going to paint your home do we want it to look for example not lopsided on one side with a color for example .
