Painting a House's Exterior

Curb appeal is an important  aspect of a house, and merits attention regarding color and trim for any house.  Will the color selected be in harmony with other houses in the neighborhood or with the architectural style of the property? Or, do you stick with the same color combination?  It’s an interesting challenge worthy of some research. 

Should the color of the trim be shades darker or lighter than the primary color of the clapboards or shingles?  Should a contrasting color be introduced? Or, none of the above!  

If in doubt, consult with a trusted professional for his/her expertise for a creative opinion or solution. A productive adventure is to tour around this greater area and observe the color of the many homes visible from the street. The colors chosen may be varied and customized which may help in your own decision process. Besides, it’s a fun exercise. At the same time, focus on how a welcoming front door makes a statement with a dramatic harmonizing color.
