In terms of actual exterior paint colours for curb appeal, here’s where you start to think about what kind of look you’re going for specifically. A nice neutral look might be your go-to for the best curb appeal because more often than not, these colours attract the most people.

Plan it Out!

Take into consideration the landscape of your yard – if you are picking bold vibrant shades, the landscaping should be thorough shades of green. Including bushes, shrubs and plants that are not all different colours. This will help keep the eye on your home and not at the ground thus making a strong curb appeal!

An added top professional tip:

Typically, you want to paint about 70% of your home one colour. Then you can paint the trim around 20% and stand out accents about 10% like the front door. This rule is a good one to follow if you are unsure where to paint which colours, and it will keep it looking professional.
