Adding a new paint job to the exterior of your home is an easy and cost-effective way to your home look fresh and new. Whether you’re the new home owner or are just ready for a change of design style, redefining your home’s exterior style can be an exciting project.
Choosing the Scheme
Painting the outside of your house is a bit more daunting than painting the interior. Several key elements come into play, such as the size of the surface area of the exterior, the way that the light hits your home, and what era your home was build. For example, if your home is a designated heritage home, you are usually required to consult with a color panel before painting, so that the house fits with the character and era that it was built. Finally, since your exterior surface area is so much larger than your interior, and you’re dealing with a variety of textures (stucco, wood, etc.), be sure to enlist a professional consultant to help you. Our trained experts at Two Lions Painting can help you choose the best paint and color palette for you.
The easiest and most potent way to add charm and pop to your exterior scheme is to paint your front door a statement color. Many people love red front doors while other more daring choices today include yellow, blue or even purple. Your front door is one of the focal points of your home’s exterior, so it should stand out. The family, friends, and guests who visit your home will see your front door and be pleased with the statement that it makes about your design style. Another idea is to paint the trim around your windows and doors a bold color, such as black instead of the typical white, or even a pop of color that coordinates with the rest of the scheme.
A fresh paint job can increase real estate value
If you’re getting ready to sell your house then adding a new coat of paint may be a good way to catch the eye of potential buyers. A new coat of paint can make the home look brand new and can increase its value, as the exterior appearance of your home or business is your opportunity to make a positive first impression. For even greater curb appeal, consider updating your landscaping as well as putting in some accent lighting to illuminate your home’s beauty.
Fresh paint can protect your home
Often, exterior paints can provide excellent protection against the elements of weather, such as wind and rain, to help maintain a beautiful look, as well as protect the siding of your home.
