Tips to keep in mind when choosing your color
Tip 1: Use the 60-30-10 rule.
When you choose your home exterior makeover color palette, make sure to implement the 60-30-10 rule. That means the primary color should take up 60% of the home (that’s the siding), the secondary color should take up 30% of the home (that’s the gables and accessories), and the accent should take up 10% of your home (those are the trims). Following this general rule of thumb will yield great results and strike a perfect balance between the colors you choose.
Tip 2: Borrow from the neighbors.
You want your home to stand out in order to add curb appeal, but you don’t want it to stick out like a sore thumb. You also don’t want your neighbours to feel like you are “one-upping” them, and you certainly DO want your home to flow harmoniously with theirs. So how do we do this? Borrow at least one color from your neighbor’s color scheme and include it in your own. It doesn’t have to be the primary, or even the secondary, but as long as you include a color from your neighbor’s’ home as an accent (at a minimum), your home will harmonize with theirs and flow beautifully.
Tip 3: Complement the architecture of the home.
While you may want to go crazy with your house color, there are still some limitations that you have to be mindful of. Make sure the color palette you go with doesn’t work against the architecture of the home. For example, if you have a colonial style home it may look great with dark, strong colors but a French colonial may be better suited for a lighter color palette.
