Are you finding selecting colours for the exterior of your home stressful? Do you lie awake at night worrying about how you colours will look? The exterior is the first impression everyone has of your home so taking the time to get it right is well worth it.
I get a lot of queries about what colours exterior trims like gutters, fascias, downpipes and windows should be. It is an area that people really struggle with. The most common questions I get are “should my gutters blend in with the walls or the roof?” or “should my fascia match the gutters?” or “what colour should I paint my downpipes?”
So many people are afraid of dark colours. The most common thinking is that it will make rooms feel smaller. For this reason so many people go with all white.But dark walls don’t necessarily make a room look smaller. Painting a wall in a very dark colour can make it disappear and bring the focus to what is on the wall.
Colour is one of those things that a lot of people take for granted. They paint their house the first white they find, they go and select a beige carpet and white kitchen cupboards, a grey benchtop and that is the last time they think about it. They don’t mind the result but they don’t love it.
