Canberra Colours for 2020 – What Colour Works Best For Your House

by | Feb 27, 2020 | House Painting

Once you have built or bought your dream home, it’s time to add the final flourishes to the exterior, to really make it your own and give it that sheen that will make it stand out as something special. But it’s not as easy as you’d think to make that decision. Here are a few key factors and options I think you should consider before taking the plunge.

First off, as a professional in the trade, I can tell you that though this is a considerable investment, and definitely, something worth mulling over, getting it right will add value to your house. 

Number one without a doubt is to look at your surroundings; Is your home in an urban location, out in the suburbs, or in a more rustic setting?

In my experience, if your house is in a built-up area it helps to be consistent with the style of the other houses nearby. By all means highlight your personal touch through details and fittings like doors, windows, and guttering. 

Softer tones tend to predominate in the suburbs. Though some prefer mainly white palette, there is a multitude of shades that can give your home that individual touch.

It also depends on the style of architecture. More modern constructions can benefit from a striking, strong-colour palette using dark, earthy colours. 

Contrasting and complementing with prevailing light conditions and vegetation is a must. Remember, your house does not exist in isolation. Don’t think of it in the abstract, make sure you do plenty of colour test on location and observe how everything complements perfectly.

Whatever colour scheme you choose, our expertise, an extensive range of colours and products will make sure to give your home the outstanding image that will leave the impression you want. Don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll do our best to bring out the best in your home’s exterior.
