Exterior Paint Color Trends of 2014

>As we head into the warmer months, you might be thinking about either updating or refreshing the exterior color of your home. After all, winter tends to take quite a toll, especially if you live in an area where the temperatures fluctuate a good deal. Before you grab your favorite painting shirt and ladder from the garage, you need to ask yourself an important question: what color should I paint my home?

What Are the Exterior Paint Color Trends of 2014?

Simply put, it seems that the paint color trends of 2014 are going to be classic and soft. Whites and creams will be popular; a trend that in many ways is tipping its hat to iconic colors of classic American homes.

Another aspect of this respect for tradition is a tendency to choose paint colors that have a regional flair. There are many paint colors that are particular to certain parts of the country (such as the white New Englander, or the warmer look of coastal homes in the Southwest). This can provide some inspiration for you, depending on the region in which you live.

What Paint Color Should My Trim Be?

2014 is going to be the year of trim paint colors that are soft, yet at the same time stand out nicely. These can be on the more subtle end of the spectrum (think along the lines of beige, pale greens, and light grey), or more bold, such as a stormy grey trim paired with a cream-colored home. These brisk color differences will help the outline of your house to stand out and offer an opportunity to be a stylistic statement that sharpens the edges.

Are You Going to Have A Statement Door?

A front door that is a complimenting but starkly different paint color can be a fun way to express some creativity. This is a retro look (you need only look back to white colonials with black front doors), but one that has a modern spin because of the unique paint color choices you can make. Deep reds, a variety of blues, and greens can all be used to make your door stand out.
