Accessorize Your Chicagoland Home’s Exterior With Color

Want to look your very best before heading out the door?

Make certain your shoes look good, check your hair one last time, and choose some statement shades for the sun’s somewhat late arrival to the midwest.

Believe it or not, those same rules apply to your house.

Think of your home’s accessories: the front door, the trim, and the shutters. Use color to make a statement and increase your curb appeal at the same time.

Using Paint for a Fabulous Front Door

Just because your door has always been red, it doesn’t have to stay that way. Sometimes it’s hard to imagine a new color scheme when you’ve grown long-accustomed to the current color. Not sure what would match? When choosing a new color, take into consideration the color of the siding, brick or stone. And don’t forget the roof; there may be a few new shades hiding up there. If choosing a new color scheme seems daunting, schedule a color consultation with a painting professional. Not only are they happy to help, they’re brimming with ideas most of us never even considered!

Your Exterior Trim: More Than White

White trim is crisp and clean and timeless, but it isn’t your only choice. Depending on your home’s architectural style, a new trim color can really accentuate your home and give it a completely new look. Once you’ve decided to go this route, look for a painting professional skilled in detail work.

Attention to detail is essential here and experience counts.

Shutter Color: Eyes Wide Open

Changing your shutter color is one of the easiest ways to revitalize your home’s exterior. Shutters are one of your most visible accessories. When developing a new color palette, keep in mind that while each color should complement the next, they don’t need to match, or be the same color. Actually, it’s more interesting if you use different colors for different elements. Depending on your surface materials, you’ll want to have the right paint for the job, but an estimate with a quality painter can address all those questions before work begins.
