How to Pick Exterior Paint Colors for Your Home

Choosing exterior paint colors for your home can be nerve-wracking. Nowhere else is so much paint used, and nowhere else does it make such a big impact as the exterior of your home. If you get it right, your home will look naturally beautiful. If you get the color wrong, your home will become an eyesore in the neighborhood. With so much pressure, how can you get the color right? Follow these tips for a beautiful exterior home color.

  1. Honor the Style of your Home- Pick colors that work with the era your home was built in. Pick colors that fit with the style of your home and are historically accurate for the time it was built. For example, bright colors on a mid-century home or older might not work.
  2. Pay Attention to the Architecture- Pick colors that work with the roof, stone work or walkways as those are bound to not change and will affect the appearance of the color you select.
  3. Follow Three Steps- Select the main color of your home, the accent color- which would be shutters doors, and the trim color. Make sure these three colors work well together and that the trim and main color have a contrasting element to them to really make the home pop! If you plan to go with a darker color for your home, choose a light color for trim.
  4. Ask for Help and Don't Stress!- Let Spectrum Painting's color consultant help with choosing colors for you home. Not only will she bring along chips and samples across the color "Spectrum", but she's also able to do a mock-up of your home or business in a print out showing how different combinations of color will look.

People happy with our services

Excellent workmanship! The crew was meticulous, very polite and when finished, the house was left very clean. We chose Spectrum based on your reputation and you lived up to it!

Spectrum was very professional and they did a great job with every aspect of the job. They were friendly and helpful, had ideas for future projects and worked quickly and really took care in the staining of the deck. Everyone on the team was courteous.

We hired Spectrum to paint, wallpaper, remove wallpaper, build a closet, remove popcorn ceilings, and other related jobs that came up. Each day I was greeted with a smile and handshake from the crew leader and his team. At the end of the day, their enthusiasm was as strong as it was in the morning. Just an amazing group of dedicated, hardworking people. They finished our condo in record time, covered our floors and furniture, what little we had. I am sorry that we have to stop at 5 stars. They deserve at least double that number! We moved into a condo and they were careful also about the common areas, putting down tarps and board to keep the dust off the rugs and not track onto the carpet. The building staff was so appreciative!

Each and every employee is professional, courteous and does meticulous work. The attention to detail is amazing and the care they take in the cleanup process is to be commended. I actually think they left my house cleaner than when they started the work. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would give them a 20!!! Completely exceeded my expectations!

We used Spectrum Painting to paint our laundry room, kitchen, living room, office, powder room, sitting room, 2 story foyer and hall, 2 bedrooms, master bedroom, ceilings in kitchen, living room, and foyer, 3 car garage, shutters on 13 windows, and the front door with 2 sidelights. In addition to the walls being painted all doors, baseboards, window frames, crown molding, and other trim were included. Furthermore, we had a wallpaper border removed and crown molding added in the master bedroom. The paint job took less than a week and turned out great! We could not be happier with all of the colors we chose (with the help of Pam) and the way the it turned out. Overall, the sales team, including Rich Lauretta and John Mangiafreno, the project manager Rafael, and the design consultant Pam Steinhilber were all very professional and a pleasure to work with.
