The outside of your home is where you have the most potential to make a first impression. Even to those who might never set foot inside your home, the type of paint you choose, as well as the color scheme, can be the most important decision when it comes to how outsiders view your home. Yes, the lawn and the decorations around your home are important, the driveway and the sidewalk all have an impact as well, but the way your house itself looks can be directly impacted by the way you choose to paint it. Let’s dive into a few ideas you can use for inspiration of your own when it comes to painting your home’s exterior.

Another great place to draw inspiration when deciding how to paint your home is to think about where the inspiration was drawn when designing your home. If your house was intended to resemble a sort of cabin, the natural choice would be to go with an earthy color scheme as well. Focus on your browns and deep greens when painting this type of home. If you have a more traditionally “classic American” home, these typically look best with a very calm taupe color scheme with the subtle accent of color around the windows or doors.
The key thing to remember when thinking about repainting your house is that it is, in fact, yours. So don’t be afraid to spice things up a little bit. If you want to add that little splash of purple on your front door to really make it pop, go for it. As long as you like it, there’s no reason you should be afraid to do it. If you’re looking for advice, though, don’t be afraid to ask for that either.
