Choosing Paint

Choosing Paint – House Painting

Here are some suggestions for choosing paint and stain for exterior and interior house painting.

Exterior House Painting:

  • First and foremost,  you need to check with your homeowners association (HOA) to see if there are any restrictions on what paint
    colors and stains you can choose
  • Don’t be afraid to use your imagination with the color scheme; mixing a variety of colors doesn’t necessarily cost that much more than sticking with a bland color scheme
  • Don’t draw attention to unattractive features such as gutters or air conditioners by painting them a different color
  • Consider the color of your neighbors’ houses and how your colors will look next to their
  • Take into account other nearby colors, such as the color of the roof, the color of the landscaping, shading near the house, etc.

Interior House Painting

  • You don’t have to settle for beige or white, the most common colors used for house painting in new homes
  • Not all whites and beiges are alike (some have tints of pink, blue, brown, etc.), so choose your hue carefully
  • Decide if you’re going with warm colors (such as reds and oranges) or cool colors (such as blues and greens)
  • Typically, in interior design, the color of paint is often the last choice, not the first choice, which allows you to complement your furniture and furnishings
