A big decision that many homeowners find difficult is selecting their exterior paint for their properties. You can find individuals buying tons of color samples, putting them against the walls, trying to match them with the other items in their homes, etc. Most of the time, the possibilities for painting services are endless, which can seem frustrating. Luckily, EZ Builders has a design team that can assist you with this process, so you do not need to feel stressed out. In this post, we will share with you some tips on how we advise our clients to go through the process.

Things To Consider

The first thing we like to tell our clients is to really think through the paint selection process. Our team will provide you with top quality paint brands, so that you will not need to repaint your home shortly after you get it done. Our painting services should last you for many years to come. By planning ahead and getting a sense of what shade of color you want for your exterior, it can save you a lot of time during the process.

Stand outside of your property and look at the aesthetics and small details. Does your home have trimmings? Does it have window panes or attic windows? All of these things should be taken into consideration, because you will need to decide if to paint it all one color or make it more than one. To give your home a more unique look, we suggest going with a darker color for your walls, and a lighter color for the small details, or vise versa.

While standing outside, get a good look at the style of your home. There are many different types of home styles, such as modern, traditional, victorian, country, Spanish, etc. Each of these types of homes gives a different look that is unique and different. This can help you determine what colors should be used for your exterior. For example- modern style homes use more neutral to dark grey tones because of their simplicity. Country style homes use a lot of yellows, greens, greys, and light blues. Spanish style homes are normally white or tan colors.
