Different home improvement websites have different tips on getting started, and if you find yourself going through each article, you might end up even more confused. Here are a couple of helpful suggestions:
Look at Other Houses: If you are starting from zero and don’t have a specific color or shade in mind, drive around residential areas, look at the houses there, and take photos of houses you like. This way, you can see real colours in real houses and therefore have a better idea of how those colours would look at your home.
When in Doubt, Consult the Colour Wheel: Looking for good colour combinations? Refer to the colour wheel to check which ones belong to the same family or which colours are complementary.
That said, you’re not limited to paint colours when designing your home’s exterior. There are more options to achieve your desired aesthetic, and one way to do that is through exterior wall cladding. You have plenty of choices here, from the classic brick wall cladding to stone, to aluminum, and so much more. Professional cladding contractors London from KDD Construction Ltd are one click away.
When I was trying to decide on a color for my exterior wall coatings, I did quite a lot of research online to help me to find out which colors would look the best. I came across this coating service company website: http://www.protectyourwalls.co.uk/services/exterior-wall-coatings, which included quite a lot of information about choosing the right color for your building. When you’re choosing a color, you should think about:
– The color of the neighboring properties
Although you have the freedom to choose whichever color you like, properties usually look nicer when they coordinate well with the other properties in the area. If you are thinking of choosing something very different than your neighbors, you may want to find out their feelings about it to avoid any upset at a later date
– The color of your roof
You want to make sure that the color you choose also coordinates well with your roof.
