Painting The Exterior Of Your Home

There are a number of factors that you should consider when painting the outside walls of your home. These factors range from the type of paint you will be using through to the colour that you choose to use. You need to consider you own preferences and weigh these against whether or not your neighbours will be fine with it. Your budget is another factor that you should consider and is actually very important. You should ensure that you do not cut corners with the quality of the paint because this could end up costing you more money as you frequently have to put a new coat of paint.

As mentioned above, choosing the colours to use when painting the exterior of your home is very important. You may want to go for the original colour of the house. You can get an expert to come in and take a look at the old paint colour and have it mixed to that exact colour. This is a great way of keeping the house with the original colour.  Keeping it the original colour will add value to the house because everything has been keep as original as possible.  

You will also want to take your neighbours into consideration. You would not want a colour that will bring down the image of the whole street. Having a colour that is in harmony with the rest of the street is a good idea. It helps with keeping the value of all the houses high and will not be something that brings everyone down. The colours of the exterior walls do not have to be the same as everyone else’s but, they should add to the look of the neighbourhood and not take away from it.  

You can also look at the nature around you for inspiration on the colours you choose. If you live in a very leafy suburb, then you can choose a house colour that complements this. Having an earth coloured pallet as your colour basis will help your home blend in well with the environment and landscape it is set in.
