Navigating the color world of exterior painting can be daunting! There are so many choices when it comes to choosing a paint color for the exterior of your home. You can choose any number of trendy or bold colors - but if you want something that will stand the test of time, its best to go for a classic color for your home’s exterior. We’ve put together a list of 5 timeless and elegant exterior paint colors that we think will look great on your home in coastal New England!
This light yellow color is bright, cheery and inviting. It is also a classic in terms of exterior paint colors. If your goal is to give your home a welcoming curb appeal then light yellow would be a fantastic choice. And paired with some accents of white, or grey this color will be sure to give your home a beautiful and fresh look.
A neutral color like light tan or khaki is always a good choice when it comes to exterior painting. This color blends seamlessly into its surroundings and provides a gorgeous backdrop for landscaping. Its also easy to decorate with trim, shutters doors, etc. If you live in a traditional neighborhood, this color would be ideal because it would blend in with the other houses and the neighborhood surroundings.
Greys are both trendy and classic these days. A light grey is a neutral, similar to tan or khaki, that will always be around. With a light grey exterior, your home will have a sleek and clean curb appeal. When you’re choosing this color, the best trim color to choose is white. Just like the rest of the colors on our list, light grey will not clash with your roof color no matter no matter which color roof you may have - even if your home has traditional shingles.
Red is popular because of classic brick homes. Something about that deep, red brick is homey and cozy and people have been choosing it for their home’s exteriors for years. As long as brick is a popular building material, red will always be a popular color for the exterior of your home. Especially if you live in a wooded or green area. Red is also a great idea if you have a significant amount of landscaping - or if your home has ivy crawling up the walls.
White is anything but boring for exterior homes. White is incredibly clean and sleek. However, there is one important thing to consider when painting your home white: dirt will show up more easily meaning you’ll need to keep the exterior clean regularly in order to make sure it looks great! White is a great color for homes all year round - whether your yard is blanketed in snow or basked in a sunny day! White also bounces heat instead of absorbing it, so the inside of your home will be nice and cool.
