3 Tips for Choosing the Right Exterior Paint for Your Home, Lincoln, Nebraska

Repainting the outside of your house is a cost-effective way to increase curb appeal. But what color do you want greeting you during every return home? Before hiring a remodeling contractor to begin this home improvement project, the guide below offers tips for selecting a shade that suits your property and style. 

What Factors Should Influence Your Exterior Paint Choice?

1. Consider the Neighborhood

While you may want your home to stand out, it shouldn’t jar with other properties in the area. Therefore, if most houses on the street are shades of eggshell or tan, consider something that is also a bit muted—like olive green or pearly grey. This is especially important if you plan on selling the home someday, as more neutral colors tend to do better during resale—with greige being the most popular shade among buyers. Similarly, if your house has a certain look—whether it is a mid-century modern or Tudor—these styles come with certain established color schemes you likely don’t want to stray too far from.

2. Remember the Roof

However, if you’re not planning on updating the roof when you repaint the exterior, make sure that the shade you choose for the house does not clash with the shingles.

3. Look at the Landscape

When choosing a paint color, you can take inspiration from almost anything, but one of the most convenient sources is your own landscaping. What type of trees, flowers, and bushes are around your yard? Whites and greys can serve as a supporting backdrop for bright green leaves and pink and red flowers, while light blue might bring out the beauty of any water features you have.
