Finding the right exterior paint color for your home can be daunting when there are thousands to choose from. Spectacular Painting is a premier painter who really enjoys helping homeowners with great tips and advice on choosing colors for Atlanta exterior painting projects.

Whether your home has a traditional architectural style or something new and contemporary or modern, using quality paint is key. Here are some tips about choosing colors for exterior painting.

Are Bright Colors Totally Out For Contemporary Homes?

Absolutely not. In many areas of the U.S., bright colors will always trend even though what is “in” for each area can vary. Coastal homes, tropical homes, and nature-inspired homes will always sport fabulous bright or bold colors.

Victorian homes will forever need accenting with beautiful, bright paint colors and many contemporary homes are sporting bright and bold reds, oranges, blues, black, and other tones.

Choosing the right paint color in bright colors should be carefully considered because it’s very easy to make the wrong choice which looks garish instead of fabulous. Also, home owner’s association homes and historical homes may have regulations that limit your exterior painting color choices.

Exterior Paint Colors Popular Now

One very “In” quality paint color is the current favorite of the painters at Spectacular Painting -Benjamin Moore’s Shadow 2117-30. The rich, amethyst color is amazing on many architectural home styles including Victorian, colonial, contemporary, and more. Salamander 2050-10 is a bolder saturated color which is equally stunning for exterior painting.

Other favorite “in” colors range between those with rich, deeper hues to muted pales. Sea Star 2123-30 and Sandlot Gray 2107-50 are two beautiful muted colors.

Lighter shades of paint help to reflect sunlight and tend to last longer when used on your Atlanta area home’s exterior. They also require fewer coats and are easy to replace later. With the flexibility lighter tones offer, you can find the perfect match for all architectural home styles.

Colors such as Sea Star, Sandlot Gray, and Porcelain are also wonderful accent colors for trim on darker home exteriors. Whether it’s darker brick or darker paint on a stucco, concrete, or wood exterior, these contrasting colors stand out as a beautiful accent.
