Some of us are not content with a neutral color palette and prefer something more fun. We want to be bold and to stand out. You’ve probably seen a pretty house or two with bold front door colors. By painting the front door in a more daring hue, these houses catch your eye and make you stop to look again. One common example is the many houses that have bright red front doors. The red door phenomenon isn’t your only choice, though. Choosing a striking color is an inexpensive way to personalize your home, increasing its curb appeal and possibly its asking price when you’re looking to sell. Here are some fun options for the bold homeowner.
Focus On Contrast
When selecting your home’s primary color and accent colors, consider how they will contrast. Accent colors draw the eye to aspects of the house you want to show off and make the other colors pop, too. If you’re feeling brave, pick an unusual color most homeowners don’t typically select. Or choose a bold color and bring it down a notch or two for that “just right” tone.
Check Out Your Neighborhood
If you live in a traditional neighborhood full of stately houses and neighbors who care about conventional tastes, you will probably want to stick with a less zany color. But don’t let that send you toward a color you feel you’re settling on. You can still choose a pop of color for accents and pair it with a more conservative primary color to make the accented features stand out vibrantly without being too crazy for the neighbors.
Consider hiring a design consultant to look at your home for a clean, vibrant look that balances your aesthetic goals. Have some of your ideas on hand, including magazine cutouts and paint chips. Select adjectives you want others to feel when they drive past your home. And then talk out how to create a house worthy of a home design magazine. By choosing your house colors correctly, you’ll have friends and family that love to visit and comment on your house. The aesthetic of a home creates a warm feeling that brings people back again and again.
