27 Elegant Exterior House Color Ideas

The exterior of your house is what people see before they come in. Having a nice exterior color gives the house a warm and welcoming look even before the visitors enter the threshold. Also, you will want to blend the colors with the surrounding scenery. A good combination of dark, bright, light and subdued colors can make a drab house look like a professional job. These are some exterior house color ideas especially for those who are the DIY types. There are various combinations that look superb and make the house look very attractive. Once you know what color looks best with what scenery you can choose the most suitable combination.

We see and judge the inhabitants of a house from its exterior. A shabby house gives the impression that the people who live in it are slipshod and sloppy. But a smart, well-coordinated exterior makes one admire the people who live in the house without even knowing them. These are some ideas for exterior house color that look great and blend in with the surrounding scenery. From log cabins to country mansions, you can choose whatever effect you want to create from this collection. A play with matching or contrasting colors is the trick of making the exterior of a house look good.
