Picking The Paint Colours For Your Exterior – When choosing exterior paint colour, you’ll want to be sure to get the right color to bring out the best features of your home.

If you have a particularly identifiable structure of your home, you can try to play up that feature and pick a colour that will be just the right shade to accentuate the architectural style of your Toronto home. Using paint samples will help with the finaldecision making for your paint colour ideas for exteriors.

Think about the colour of your roof, the colour of your posts, the paint colour of your front porch. All of these factors will weigh in so that you find a shade that is complimentary to the whole appearance of your lot, not just the house itself.

Don’t be afraid to ‘go bold and go home.’ As long as you know that this particular exterior paint colour scheme of choice will fit in with your neighbourhood as you don‘t want to stand out like a sore thumb! Be considerate of your neighbours in Toronto and the GTA, you are not the only one looking at your home everyday – be sure it’s tactful.


Step 2: Consider Your Options for Painting your exterior of your house

Consider the pros and cons of the exterior house paint type. For example; PRO: Latex paints are easier to work with and dry quickly. CON: It may peel. (read about the types of paint types and Paint colour here)





Step 3: Decorate and Design!

Try a pop of colour by adding bright Muskoka chairs to your front porch, or a brightly coloured door – this will really make people turn their heads!

  • Think about the landscape of your home. When thinking about painting the exterior of your Toronto home, it is important to consider your garden. Maybe some colour matching flowers, or a complimentary shade of mulch will all really make the outside of your home stick out — in the best way possible!

  • Hints:
  • If you have something in your home like a favourite vase or an end table that stands out to you, why not incorporate these shades inside your home on the outside as well? This way you’ll be sure to love your final product!

  • Using more than one paint colour (Exterior House Color Combinations) will make your home really standout. Painting the window trim or the awning a contrast colour will make it pop.

  • Try switching up the colour of your outdoor furniture for the changing seasons. You’ll have a look that will always be season approved, plus — who doesn’t love to do a little shopping?
