2017 exterior paint colour ideas for Toronto homes

In this hottest of all-time Toronto real estate market, choosing an exterior colour scheme for your home is just as vital as getting your interior colours right – if not more. Your choices in paint can not only make or break your curb appeal, but provide a good investment in value and protection for years to come. Even if you’re not selling, there’s no better cost-effective way to preserve your home than a good exterior makeover, with timeless colours.

Keep an eye out for homes sporting these three popular colour trends, and see if one of them in right for you!

1. Classic neutrals

Neutrals are by far the easiest choice for exterior house painting – “virtually foolproof,” says leading paint supplier Behr from Home Depot. They can be kept quiet and classic, blending in beautifully with your neighborhood scheme. Or they can support bold, bright accent colours to make your home stand out from the rest.

“This year, we’re seeing a lot of taupe and gray – as well as one of the hottest colours of the year, off white. Then, for a neutral accent, black remains at the top of the list to accompany all of them.”

2. Old-time yellows

From bright, buttery yellow to muted, sun-washed tones – yellow exteriors are making a comeback in Toronto. Warm and friendly, yellow shades exude a sense of welcoming to make you and your guests feel right at home from the moment you arrive.

For a look that’s modern and clean – as well as easy on the eye – we recommend choosing a light shade on the larger surfaces accented with soft, neutral colours like cream or slate gray on the trim.

3. Cool inorganics

Inorganic colours are making a statement this year, particularly cool shades of natural blues and greens. They’re not only beautiful, evoking a sense of serenity, but are more durable than bright, organic colours with better U.V protective qualities.

Whichever you choose, opt for a lighter shade, which will last longer and fade less than darker hues.
