The right colors can create visual harmony and make your exterior look fantastic. All you need to do is follow some simple design tips when choosing your replacement windows and other exterior elements. Your goal is to give each section their own unique character while making sure that everything works well together. Up and Above Contractors explains more:
- Keep Your Color Palette Focused: Three to five harmonious colors are plenty to help you design a pleasing exterior. It’s best if you choose hues with a similar tonal value to make sure that the colors will look great together. You can also use the color wheel as a guide and select analogous colors or even colors that are variations of the same shade. Consider selecting colors that are based on a common theme or on history, particularly if you have a traditional home.
- Be Guided by Your Architecture: You can choose colors that are a classic or fail-safe choice for your home’s particular architectural style. There’s a reason why these siding or paint color schemes became classic. You can also be guided by architecture in another way. You can use the architectural features of your exterior as transition points or exclamation points for your color scheme.
- Consider Fixed Elements: Fixed elements on your exterior, such as masonry or the like, need to be considered when choosing your color scheme. These items all have color, and they interact with the rest of your exterior elements. You can make them highlights or use their colors as guidelines to help you choose your color palette.
