Trending Exterior Colors for 2017Choosing a color for the exterior of your home can pose quite the dilemma for some people.  It’s a difficult decision because it can make such a huge difference in your home’s aesthetic.  It’s important to make sure that the color you choose will complement your home’s roof color and not stand out too much from the other homes in the area.  However, you also don’t want your home to look boring!  Sometimes it can even feel as if there are very limited colors to paint the exterior of your home.  However, 2017 is the year of unconventional house colors.  Keep an open mind!  These fun and exciting paint colors can dramatically increase your home’s curb appeal and beautify your house.

Cool Green

This paint color is more muted than a dark or lime green yet not quite pastel.  It’s more of a light green with some white paint mixed in to make the color seem different and fun without being too in-your-face.  Cool green paired with white trim can make your home feel light, airy, and almost cottage-like.  If this is a feel that you want for your home, try cool green as the color for your home’s exterior!

Dark Gray

This next color may seem a little unconventional due to how dark it looks.  However, dark isn’t bad!  In fact, a dark color can add to the ambiance of your house and make it feel warm and cozy.  This color is a bit darker than a normal gray but not so dark that it feels oppressive on your exterior.  If you’re the kind of person who likes an intimate, cozy feel to your home, this color may be for you.


Put a little twist on the common beige that many people paint their homes by adding just a hint of pink to step up your paint color game.  Painting your home this shade will invoke feelings of relaxing summer days in the sun.  You can even pair this color with a light green to create an even more effortless feel.  While it may sound a little funky, finding a muted peachy hue can add a pretty, light feeling to your home.


As far as paint colors go, this one may be the craziest suggestion so far.  But keep an open mind as it will definitely add personality to your home!  If you like to stand out and let your unique personality show, this could be the right color for you.  If you pair it with a more muted or conventional color, it will add just the right amount of pizzazz that you’re looking for.

Gone are the days of being forced to choose from only a few boring and conventional paint colors for the exterior of your home.  In 2017, there are tons of non-traditional but lovely hues to complement the front of your home and give it a unique feel.  Break out of beige, white, and yellow and try a new color such as green, gray, peach, or even turquoise.  To accent your home’s exterior and add another pop of color, try painting your door a fun and funky color too.  Investing in your home’s curb appeal can greatly increase the value of your home as well as make it a much more inviting place for your friends and family to visit.
