5 Hot Colours to Light Up Exterior

July 4, 2018
Tired of your faded, dull, out-of-date exterior colours and patchy paint application? When it’s time to paint your Toronto home’s exterior, this is the perfect opportunity to change up the colours to something you absolutely love that has greater curb appeal and captures interest.

As an extension of your interior, the outside of your home can continue carrying your personal style, creating a cohesive look. Or, you can go a different direction with your exterior, taking into account the architecture, landscaping and neighborhood.

When it comes to making a gorgeous exterior presentation, the professionals at ColourWorks Painting Design can help you choose the right colour combination and can apply it with skill and an eye to detail. But first, the fun part—choosing the colours that pop!

5 Hot Colour Combinations for House Exteriors:

Gray and Teal – Try an amazing gray, like Wisdom Gray from Glidden, paired with a bright door in teal, aqua or turquoise. Trim it with a clean white for a beautiful, sophisticated look.

Yellow and Blue – For a gorgeous twist on a classic combo, try a soft yellow, like Pantone’s 917 U. Add a washed denim blue to the door and a natural white trim for a subtle but notable use of colour in a neighborhood filled with natural colours.

Blue and White – Blue is a solid Americana colour, and this colonial sky blue from Sherwin-Williams, Regale Blue, is the perfect blend of elegance and friendliness. Use a pearly white for the trim and a natural wood stained door and you’ve got a house to be proud of.

Greige and Orange – Greige, the popular combination of gray and beige, makes an attractive exterior colour. Check out Broxburn Greige by Benjamin Moore as a solid exterior choice. Put your own twist on it with Orange Burst as an eye-popping door. Choose a cloudy white or gray for the trim and you’ll love the statement your house makes.

Blue and Butternut – A stately colour of deep, dusky blue makes a solid impact when combined with a sandy peach. Try Behr’s Lyric Blue for the exterior and Butter Nut for the door and trim. Weathered White makes a great accent to tie the earthy colour combination together.

Other considerations when preparing for an exterior painting project:
