Exterior House Color Ideas – Behr Paint

I headed over to Home Depot for exterior house color ideas with Behr Paint. Deciding what color to paint the exterior of your house is a big decision.  Pick a paint brand you love and then explore their exterior house color ideas.  Of note, I read that yellow houses sell 80% faster than any other color of house.

Classic traditional white is never out of style.  Add deeper colors to accent doors, shutters and windows when using white.  When using light hues, also pick two other colors; one for trim and one for accents and doors.  Make one of these choices a dark color for interest to your house exterior.

Midtone exterior house colors are popular and easy on the eye.  Keep in mind the color of your roof and paving.  Midtones paired with deep accent colors add warmth and depth.  Deep rich exterior house colors reduce the mass of your house helping it to blend into its setting.  Consider how light sets on your house by paint testing sample colors on the exterior first before you buy.

    Thank you for such a nice compliment. Interesting to know neutral and brights are popular in Florida, but it makes so much sense.

  3. Like you Sue, I can spend hours whiling away in the paint section of the hardware store – or even Walmart for that matter!

  4. I haven’t done any paint projects and I usually leave that for hubby to do. Those are some beautiful houses though. :)
