Exterior Painting: 2020’s Hottest Trends! Here in Westchester & Beyond!
The sun is shining, the birds are singing and you’re enjoying the beautiful weather as you sit outside on your patio. Looking around while relaxing, you realize it may be time for some new exterior paint.
It’s the perfect time of year to plan for your project and excitement grows as you consider all the color options. But how will you ever choose? Never fear! Our Westchester County-based painting company has created this guide on how to choose your exterior paint color, including the hottest trends of 2020, to help you out along the way.
START BY CREATING A BEAUTIFUL BACKDROP.
To get started with narrowing down the color options, you’ll begin by looking at the palate already in place. Perhaps you have a lovely yard with picturesque landscaping. To accent your fully-bloomed petunias or ravishing roses, you should select color options that will serve as a beautiful backdrop.
These colors should also complement any natural materials on your home, such as stone or brick. As you narrow down your color choices, take a gander at your roof. Is it a warm or cool color? Whichever it is, your siding should be the same.
Finally, whittle your choices down further by peeking at the surrounding homes. Choosing a color that jibes with the rest of the neighborhood will seal the deal to that perfect curb appeal.
CREATE LONG-LASTING CURB APPEAL WITH TIMELESS, TRENDING COLORS.
We all love fun in the sun, but bright paint colors will fade a bit quicker in those beaming UV rays. If you’re looking for a color that really lasts, lighter tones or neutral colors will serve your purpose well. These timeless tones are also a great option for smaller homes and homes that may be put back onto the market. Trending exterior paint colors in 2020 that fit the bill are soothing earth tones such as ivory, taupe and sage green. We’re also seeing soft pastels such as pale blue and light pink, or classic shades of warm whites.
BOLD CAN BE BEAUTIFUL.
While it’s hard to go wrong with those lighter shades, bold colors that are used properly can also be quite beautiful. For example, as grays move down on the popularity list, warm browns, dark blues, barnyard reds, yellows, turquoise and the number one new star of 2020, black, are working their way up into the market.
TAKE AWAY THE GUESSWORK.
Once you’ve narrowed down your color choices, it may help to have a visual of the potential outcome. Thanks to apps like Paint My Place, you can take a picture of your home and virtually paint it.
