Exterior House painting does not have to be a tedious task. In fact it can really change the look and value of your home. It is an extension of your lifestyle and should be your pride and joy.
Most people feel that painting a home can be a tedious task, especially when it comes to exterior painting of their home. Getting permits, choosing a complementary paint and the right person to execute the task at hand can seem rather daunting. We always tell our clients that it does not have to be like that. Once you have chosen the right company, the only thing that you should be concentrating on is finding the right colour. Choosing the right colour can actually be a fun experience if you keep a few simple things in mind!
What is your home’s personality?
A number of things can influence the personality of your home. Your neighbourhood, geographical location and architecture are the vital things that can help you choose the right colour for your exteriors. If you live in a modern and hip area then you can go over the top and choose a colour that adds a unique personality to your home. If your style is a more subtle then you can go for lighter and subdued shades. You should also take a good look at the architecture to unravel the story of your home. Is the architecture Mediterranean inspired? If so then shades of oranges and beige would be your choice of colour.
Be inspired by the Nature that surrounds your home
Let Nature be your guide if you are lucky enough to have a home by the beach, beautiful mountains of deep valleys. The colour of your exterior does not have to be an exact replica of your nature, but it can give you a clue as to what would complement your home the best. For example a home by the beach would look beautiful in shades of light blues, tan, whites etc rather than an imposing dark brown.
You do not always have to fit in the norm by painting your home with traditional colours. Many people draw inspiration from the holidays overseas and paint their exteriors completely different from their neighbours. Some of our clients have painted their exteriors with bold colours such as bright orange, magenta and royal blue to represent homes from Europe, Asia and South America.
Use History for Ideas
If your home has a historical value then a great idea for your exteriors could be to restore your home to its original colours. All you need to do is check the historical organisations in Auckland for the original colour of your house. If your house is not a historical site but you are a history buff then you can always give your exteriors an old age
