Tips for Choosing Exterior Paint
There are several essential tips to keep in mind when you are trying to find the best exterior paint option for your project:
Pay attention to the sun's location. Take note of which parts of the building get the most sunlight at which times of the day. Full sun intensifies colors, so consider more subtle colors for the areas that get maximum sunlight. If the property is mostly shaded, saturated hues stand out for a beautiful look.
Consider the surfaces you are painting. Certain paints and colors look better on certain surfaces than others due to different material textures and styles. You may need a heavy-duty option for hard-to-paint surfaces or a particular color that provides the best coverage.
Use contrast. Color variations make a home's exterior more visually appealing. A mix of complementary light and dark colors is the best way to achieve this attractive variation. For example, if you are painting the trim on a home with a brick facade, it is ideal to use a contrasting cream or green shade to complement the red brick.
Find inspiration in the neighborhood. Choose colors that are unique but complementary to the building styles and natural surroundings of the neighborhood. For example, Classic American architecture is often best complemented by Benjamin Moore exterior paint colors like gray and natural blues and greens.
"Try on" the paint colors: Order color samples from Aboff's Paints and apply them on your different exterior surfaces to see how the color looks on the material and in different lighting throughout the day.
