It’s not breaking news to hear that a lick of paint does wonders to transform the look of a home. It will absolutely take your kerb appeal to the next level! But, a little help choosing the colour scheme is a welcome relief, right? Pick a self-priming exterior paint from your supplier, then have it tinted to match one of these three killer combos.
Looking for something super dramatic? Consider painting your exterior in shades of blackened stone and charcoal. This look is bold and daring in urban settings, but rather traditional-looking when surrounded by greenery. The trick to nailing this effect is specifying two different shades to create depth. Here, the walls are painted in a slightly lighter hue (Dulux Teahouse), while the window trim, eaves, porch trim and fences are painted in near-black (try Dulux Domino).
Lovin’ this look? Pick a wall colour somewhere on the lighter side of sage (here, Dulux Moorland), and highlight your windows and trim with a lovely warm white (here, Dulux White Duck Quarter). Then, it’s over to you to bring punch – and loads of personality – to your front door, achieved here with a coat of paint in a fabulous shade of seafoam (try Dulux Classic Calm). All eyes on this sharp-looking black front deck, too! PS, if you have a new Colorbond roof or awning, here in Woodland Grey, you can match the colour and paint your existing guttering and downpipes to suit.
Equally fitting to a sleepy beachside shack, country cottage or everyday house in the ‘burbs, this simple yet smart colour scheme will make your home look fresh and bright. Paint the main walls in a soft grey (here, Dulux Terrace White), then paint trim such as windows and railings in bright white (here, Dulux Vivid White). Add impact – the wow factor – with a brightly coloured door in a shade you love (here, Dulux High Blue). And remember, you can switch up your door colour every year or two to totally change the look of your home.
