The inside and outside of your home will experience wear and tear over time, but especially the outside since this is where most features are exposed to the elements. If you are ready to make changes to the outside, you should consider going with a lighter color palette. Here's why.
Dirt and Grime
By going with a light color such as white, light gray, beige, or yellow, you should expect dirt and grime to show up on exterior features much easier than darker colors. This is something that you may find advantageous as these colors will show you when you need to set aside time to clean.
While you may like how dark colors can conceal dirtiness at first, you will find that dirt and grime is harder to remove as time passes by and the substances get stuck onto exterior surfaces. Being able to see any dirt right away can help you keep features clean and minimize overall cleaning demands.
An entire property painted in neutral colors is likely not going to make people feel happier, inspired, or more creative than they already were. But, you can look forward to colors such as cream, yellow, light coral, and blue-green making a positive difference in moods for anyone passing by.
If you want your family to be exposed to these colors for longer than they would with the exterior door, siding, or window frames, you should also use these colors in commonly used exterior features like the porch.
By opting for light colors on your property, you can look forward to creating a unique appearance compared to other houses in the same neighborhood. While most houses may utilize neutral colors with bold color pops, you can make sure that your property has a bright and inviting overall color scheme that makes your place stand out next to your neighbors.
If you have several extra outdoor features like a gazebo, fence, and storage shed, you will have the opportunity to get extra creative with how you approach exterior painting. You can use these features to further reinforce a particular color scheme or go with mismatched colors.
If a unique-looking property that can boost moods and help you spot dirt and grime quickly sounds appealing to you or your family, you should not hesitate to call an exterior painting service. They'll give you a bid and help you paint your home today.
