Among the many things that come into play during an exterior home renovation project, is the appropriate choice of engineered wood siding, trims and accents. This can prove to be quite the tedious task. Bear in mind that first impressions are everlasting. In this case, you want to make sure the outside of the proprietor’s home creates that perfect first impression. Something else to keep in mind, a home’s siding colors and finishes can have a significant effect on its resale value. Curb appeal is essential when selling a home and poor curb appeal will exclude certain buyers from even looking at the home.
Key Things to Consider When Deciding on the Exterior Color of a Home:
- The architectural style of the home. Especially historical colors in that region if the building is of a certain historical era.
- The client’s personal tastes. This will be one of the biggest determining factors as the homeowner must ultimately be happy with the end result.
- The home’s surroundings and natural setting; the home should blend in comfortably even if the colors chosen are bold.
