With every season comes new paint colours that are popular with homeowners. Painting companies, designers and those involved in home furnishings love to pick top colours each and every year. After all, exterior paint has a big impact on a home and on style.

Consumers often look for the top exterior paint colours when selecting a colour for the outside of their home. After all, they want their home to feel fresh and new, rather than outdated. The colour of your house has a big impact on the overall curb appeal of your home. This is why designers and homeowners go to such great efforts to pick the right colour for the outside of their home.

While looking at the list of top colours for 2020, keep in mind the style of your home, as well as the overall character of your neighborhood. Exterior style and colour often represents a time and place. Neighbourhoods also tend to have a style and colour palette. You will want to decide how much you want your home to fit in or stand out.

The Right Exterior Paint Colour Can Increase The Worth Of Your Home 

The colour of your home can actually affect how much it could sell for. The USA real estate portal, Zillow, studied over 32,000 real estate sales to determine which exterior paint colours could affect the sale price of a home.

If you are looking to sell soon, you might want to paint your house greige as a shade that is between light grey and beige, can sell for almost $1500 more than similar homes painted different colours. Tan and brown homes can adversely affect the price of a home.

Whether greige is a top exterior colour for 2020 or not, if you’re planning to paint and then sell, go greige!
