A wide array of exterior paint colors are available to you. There are also countless shades of each color. You must decide if you favor a darker or lighter shade. Darker colors have an air of elegance about them. They do, however, tend to minimize the size of a home. Lighter colors seem to add to the dimensions of a house. Lighter colors are an excellent choice for homes in warm climates. Dark colors will retain heat.

Go for a leisurely drive about town and soak up the atmosphere. See how certain colors look on local homes. If you prefer the warmth of hearth and home then sit by the fire with some decorating magazines. Browse through the colorful homes and see what appeals to you.
