As fall rolls in and temperatures start to drop a little, don’t let yourself be rushed back indoors. There is still plenty of time to tackle your outdoor home improvement projects and up your home’s curb appeal before the Virginia winter forces you inside. In fact, why not let the fall colors inspire you to do some exterior painting?

Color Selection Tips

You may be tempted to simply stick with the existing color on your home. That’s fine, if you love the color and feel that it showcases the house, this is a simple route. If, however, you feel that it is time to change things up, now it the time to do it. Here are a few things to consider:

  1. Let your home’s architectural style lead you to the color families that showcase it best.
  2. Note the color of the roof, brick or stonework, and other permanent or semi-permanent elements and ensure that your color choices complement each other.
  3. While you want your home to be eye-catching, you probably don’t want it to stick out like a sore thumb. Take your color cues from the houses you admire most in your neighborhood.
  4. If you’re thinking of putting your home up for sale in the next couple of years, considering sticking to neutral colors that have a more universal appeal. You can use landscaping elements such planters, and flowering plants to add pops of color if you’re worried about the property seeming drab.
