Are you thinking of giving your home’s exterior a fresh new coat of paint and are wondering what colour to splash over your walls?
If you’ve visited a paint shop or home improvement store at any point in the past, then you’ll know how many colours are available. While it’s great to have many options, it can also be overwhelming to have to choose from so many tones.
The question is, what are the best colours to paint the exterior of your house in 2022?
Here are a few options to consider:
Classic Light Gray
A classic gray tone that’s somewhat close to an off-white colour is a classic option for homeowners. This colour is timeless and won’t go out of style anytime soon, if ever.
A classic neutral tone, dark gray is a great option for exterior paint. And if you are a bit concerned that it may create an exterior that’s too dark, consider dedicating this colour to specific walls or parts of walls rather than the entire exterior.
Deep Steel Blue
You may have seen a lot of dark steel blue splashed across interior walls, but this colour can also be taken outdoors. It’s rich, classic, and neutral enough to have staying power. You won’t get sick of this gorgeous colour too quickly.
Deep Gray With Blue Undertones
If you love both gray and blue but can’t seem to choose between one or the other, why not combine them both? Strong grays with deep blue undertones offer a fantastic option for a paint colour for a home’s exterior. For 2022, this is definitely one of the more popular options among homeowners.
A spin-off of gray and blue combinations, stone offers a more complex gray-blue for your exterior walls that’s a bit bolder. Stone is a super-deep grey/blue colour that works really well with natural stone components in a variety of shades.
Black might be a bit much for you, but brown might simply not be enough. The solution? Brown/black tones. This rich, dramatic colour creates a gorgeous exterior, especially when paired with stone components in different shades.
Green is also an interesting option for an exterior of a home. If you can’t bring yourself to cover your entire house in green, you can always complement it with wood stain components of your exterior walls.
One thing to keep in mind before you choose a colour to paint your exterior is whether you’re doing this for your own purposes to update your home, or if you’re doing it with the intention of selling soon.
Staging a home requires choosing more neutral colours that are appealing to the masses of buyers. So, if you’re looking to paint your home’s exterior for staging purposes, be sure to choose a colour that buyers in the area would appreciate.
