Want your neighbors to be envious of you?
Well, here you get the simplest but amazing way to do so. Pick the best colors for painting your home and make it shed the bright light. It will certainly make them feel resentful. But, to make it successful, you need to go deeper with research on the selection of colors. So, not to give a flat and featureless look to the house, pick the bold ones which might complement the architectural beauty of your house.
Show your smartness while picking the colors and make sure that your choice is potent enough to contribute a lot to highlight the features of your house and hide any design flaws (if any) as well. However, now you need to find that delightful combination of colors and here are the steps to do so:
Keep its essence intact: Planning to renovate an older home? You may probably want something very much harmonizing between past and present and for that matter, choosing a classically toning color is a necessity. A professional hand would do it better by analyzing old paint chips and restoring the color of past afresh.
Rejuvenate the times of yore: Neo-classical houses are considerably more appealing than only modern houses or historic architecture. Mix of both is better and so are you supposed to give it the best crux of colors too. Painting your old house with the magical combination of modern colors would highlight its features more brightly. Before you start working on what has been suggested here, you better take a glance at your neighbourhood. If it is a conservative society of yours, do not you think for Victorian look.
Look around and take ideas: Neighbors do not seem rivals all the time. Sometimes, they become source of ideas and be better than them. As far as house painting is concerned, make sure you are still in the popular trend but with a little bit more convincing difference.
Consider nature for color ideas: Take glance through your frontyard and backyard. The landscape spilled around your house may pump you with rich color ideas. Trees may suggest you for green and brown, the set of lake may ask you to choose vivid blue and the lawn may whisper in your ears for fertile green.
Look up to the roof: Consider your house a canvas that is not fully blank. Some colors are already there and some new to harmonize with. Generally, roofs do already have color and all you are left to do is put some more colors around to synch with it.
Everything in your house needs not be painted: Not every, but some homes do have features that need not be painted. They look best in their natural colors. For instance, wooden windows, Vinyl doors, brick walls and a few more. Pick a color for rest of the parts that goes complementing them.
Add a vision to your living room: No one is actually asking you to match your wall paint with the furnishings you have installed. But, going well with it does make sense too. Try not to match but harmonize. For instance, the color of your pillow case may help you choosing the color for your walls and the interior paint may encourage the exterior color.
Have an eye for detail: Evaluate the dimension and complexities of your house. This evaluation leads you to pick as many as six colors to paint it. However, make exceptions with the choice of accent colors when it comes to shutters, moldings, entryways, window sashes and porch deck. Application of too many colors will make your house look pricking to eyes, whereas too less color will again make it look flat and dull.
Light colors make it look great: There is no doubt in saying that light colors have always added size to the building. Big estates are always found painted white with a touch of classical architectural design. You can too add some range and volume to your house by applying light colors.
Use dark to dramatize: Coloring your window sashes, railing and siding dark will draw the attention to details. Dark shades are considered to emphasize the recesses.
Try color families than extreme variety: Application of extreme varieties of colors will make the house look ambiguous rather than a center of attraction. That is why consider holding up to any single color family and make it appear delightful.
Keep up to the harmony: Painting one part of your house in single color may give it an abnormal appearance. Try to make balance between a few complementary colors across the entire building.
