#1. Creamy Whites
Off-white is one of the most popular exterior paint colours for homes and businesses. We recommend going for a warm tone of creamy white. This shade truly is timeless and can go with any combination or on any kind of house.
Try and avoid true whites as you can better pair wood accents with warm whites.
#2. Pale Greys
It does seem like grey is here to stay. It has been a widely adopted shade for interior as well as exterior walls. Becoming an alternative to beige, there is an increased demand for cooler undertones of grey rather than only stark greys. You might also want to consider looking for greys with hints of green or warm undertones. This shade creates a fantastic Zen look – the perfect feeling you want to get the moment you come home.
Beige is the colour that is always in demand – it works well for interior and exterior too. No matter how many homes you see with this shade, they all can look good and modern. What we would suggest you should try to avoid is go for the more yellow shades of beige. Go for shades that are closer to off white.
#4. Pale Green and Blue
Pale green and blue shades are becoming extremely popular as accent colours. These shades can be so calming, yet appealing. We’re seeing a lot of our customers fall in love with it. You can use this as a hue on your shutter or doors or even pair it with a creamy white shade.
#5. Bronze Shades
It is appealing and catches a lot of attention. While it’s quite impossible to capture the bronze shade in paint, we do have some very good options that we’d love to share with you on your next visit to shop. This colour can look even better if you pair it with real bronze metal accents such as bronze patio furniture or porch lights.
#6. Two Tones
There is also a rise in ranch, split-level and contemporary designs. We forecast a spike in trend for designs having two complementary colours. You can think of two tones that work well when combined together. You can think of having one shade on top and the other on bottom or maybe have one on the sides and the other in the middle.
