Exterior colors

As we enter the last half of 2021, we start to focus our attention on what the 2022 color trends will be. This past year has seen a continuation of light to white exteriors with more movement towards accents of dark colors combined with stained wood. It’s safe to say that the exterior of your home is the ultimate first impression as many passer-byers that see it will never see the interior.

Selecting exterior items like roofing, windows, and siding can feel overwhelming and daunting.

According to Latest Décor Trends, white exteriors will continue to be fashionable in 2022. Gray toned roofs are also expected to be used more in the upcoming year. When selecting your exterior colors, they suggest the following to harmonize your home with its surroundings:

Beach houses

  • Consider the surrounding landscape. For example, the bright colored homes that dot the Gulf Coast are charming, however, they may not be suitable for a traditional home situated in a suburban neighborhood. What colors organically fit into the area?
  • Take a drive around town and look at other homes. Which ones catch your eye? Take pictures so you can examine further to determine exactly what it is you like about the colors.
  • Accent colors should be reserved for platbands, visors, cornices, decorative elements, and the like.
