Tips for Choosing the Right Shade of Blue

- Consider Your Home’s Style: The architectural style of your home can guide your color choice. Traditional homes may look best with classic navy, while modern homes might shine with cobalt or slate blue.

- Think About Surroundings: Consider the natural landscape and neighboring homes. Sky blue and robin’s egg blue work well in natural, verdant settings, while more vibrant shades like turquoise stand out in urban or tropical locales.

- Test Before You Commit: Paint swatches can look different in various lights. Try a few samples on your exterior to see how they look at different times of day.

Choosing the right shade of blue for your home’s exterior can significantly enhance its curb appeal and reflect your personal style. Whether you opt for the timeless elegance of navy or the vibrant energy of turquoise, blue offers a wide range of possibilities to make your home truly stand out.
