5 Trending Exterior House Colour

Colours play a major role in the world of decoration and design, especially when planning for your house’s exterior colours. However, choosing the right colour combination may be daunting. So we have listed some of the popular colour choices you may consider for your home.



White is a simple color that never goes out of style. This colour has many types according to what shades or hues you want in your house. White radiates a calm and clean personality. This makes it a  top favourite for many homeowners.


Light Grey

The Light Grey colour has a sophisticated and peaceful mood. It can easily be combined with other colors, which is one of the reasons for its increasing popularity.



Red brick patios, pavers, or pathways are very suitably paired with the colour blue. Here are some shades for you to consider:


Light Shades of Blue: A popular shade for this is the blue-gray combination. It can easily match almost anything which makes it another perfect option for many homeowners.


Bright Blue: This is the perfect choice for homes that have natural lights hitting it at different times of the day as it reflects a different appeal each time. This creates a bit of drama to your home depending on the time of day.


Deep Blue:  

The deep blues colour radiates a more serious and classic vibe. Some shy away from it because it has a tendency to make the house appear smaller. Nevertheless, this is a must choose for those who want to exhibit an air of confidence and tradition with their homes.



The colour yellow is associated with happiness, brightness, and mental stimulation. Bright lemon yellow is believed to be clarifying and stimulates consciousness, whereas golden yellows seem comfortable, welcoming, and warm.

It is commonly used on smaller homes such as bungalows and ranches. It is also a good choice for Victorian and Spanish-style homes, as well as farmhouses.


Earth Tones

Another factor you should consider when choosing colours for your exterior is its exposure to the sun.  You should know that beiges, browns, tans, and other earth-tone hues are more stable when exposed to the sun. So they are less likely to have broken down pigment compared to organic colours such as blues, greens, reds and yellows.


What are the best colour combinations for painting the exterior of the house?

When choosing an exterior colour scheme, a basic rule of thumb is to use three colors. Some of our recommendations include:

  • Yellow + White + Black.
  • Mocha Chocolate + Ocean Blue + Pale Blue.
  • White + Gray + Dark Blue.
  • Black + White + Ruby Red.
  • Gray + White + Dove.
  • Deep Sea + White + Red.
  • Black + White + Mediterranean Blue.
  • White + Clay + Mossy Green


Do you want to make your house look bigger?

Using light color makes your house a lot bigger. Light colours, with their superb reflected characteristics, appear to make a house appear larger than it actually is.


Final Thoughts

When picking the colour for your exterior, consider one that reflects your style and personality. Compliment it with the other materials you will be using on your house such as the bricks, roofs, and cladding.
