When you want to give the outside of your home a serious makeover, you might be looking to change up the color combination of the property. There’s many different color combinations that can make your home look great. Whether your home has siding, brick, or stone, there’s a color combination for you. Below, you’ll find some color combinations that you can consider for your home.
Gray, Blue, And White
Whether your home has a stone exterior or is just plain white, you can use these three colors in a great combination to accent the home. White brings about brightness while the darker tones of blue and gray bring out your front door and window trim, creating a silhouette of sorts.
Brown Green And White
If you’re looking for earth tones, this is a great color combination for you. These nature inspired shades can create a beautiful oasis on the outside of your home. You can choose light and dark shades that complement one another in order to bring a dramatic affect to your home.
Peach White And Gray
This color combo can add a stimulating visual effect to the front of your home. The white can be used to highlight your home’s accents, while the darker grays can add some depth the color scheme overall.
Other combos to consider:
- Gray, red, and white
- Brown, red, and green
- White, black, and gray
- Cream, yellow, and black
- Red, brown, and orange
- Greens, browns, and creams
- brown, tan, and blue
- Blue, white, and black
Remember that very color palette needs a foundation. The establishing color is the one that will overtake the majority of the outside of your home. Remember that you need to consider all of the accents of your home including the door, window trims, and shutters. Even if you don’t want to take the dive and change the entire color of your home, you can consider changing just the accents of your home. Sometimes even just adding a coat of paint to the front door can really spice up the outside of your home.
When All Else Fails, Stick With The Classics
While pops of color can always look wonderful in a color scheme on your home, if you’re afraid to think outside the box, you might want to just stick to the classics. You can never go wrong with neutral colors, especially when you use them together. Try different color combos at the local hardware store, or even try a few paint samples before you make a firm decision on your home’s makeover.
When choosing a color scheme for the rooms of your home, you may put a lot of thought into what color combinations look good together. There are actually many colors that go together. The bigger question is, will these color combinations stand the test of time? There are certain color combinations that always look good and stand the test of time.
Shades Of Blue
Blue has become thought of as a neutral color. It looks good in many different rooms of the house. Accents of other neutral colors can easily be added to the room and look great. You can mix and match shades of blue. Dark blues look great with lighter shades of turquoise or sky blue.
Black And White
This seemingly simple color combination comes with a lot of class. Because of the high contrast of the two colors, it looks quite sophisticated. It works in many different rooms. Accents of silver, wood, and even some warmer colors like shades of red that pop can add definition to a room with a black and white base.
Tan With Blue Or Green
Shades of tan or beige go along really well with blues and greens. With a beige base, it’s possible to really make accents of other earthy tones stand out in a room.
Gray With Blue Or Green
Just as tans go along really well with blue and green shades, so to do shades of gray. The gray base provides a soothing palette for earthy tones to shine through.
Gray And Shades Of White
Just like black and white shades of gray (usually darker tones) go along well with many different shades of white. With these two very neutral colors at the base of a room, it allows other colors to shine through. You don’t even need to focus on earth tones. Allow your imagination to flow and choose from a variety of colors of the rainbow.
Green And Brown
With touches of white mixed in- even a white wall, you can really make green and brown work well together without making a room seem like a jungle. You can give the room touches of other earth-toned accents in order to bring depth in the space.
Blue Shades And Gray With White
These colors may all look kind of bland on their own, but when you put them together, they shine. The 3 colors together make a usually cool color scheme seem warmer and more inviting. Just remember if you’re using a shade of deep blue not to overdo it in any room as it can be overpowering.
When you choose your colors wisely, your home will never go out of style. As you can see, there’s plenty of workable color combinations that allow you to keep your home looking stylish.
