Guide to Painting Your House a Kooky Color

Having the same color house for too many years can quickly become boring and unappealing. Liven up your home with a fresh coat of exterior paint. However, be careful when you want to choose a color that might be a little too eccentric for your neighborhood.

Location
Where is your house located? Painting your home a bright and unorthodox color doesn’t seem like a bad idea when you’re a block away from the beach. However, if your home is set on the mountainside or near farmland, it could look out of place. Wherever you live, use your surroundings as the base of your color choice.

Are You Allowed?
Just because you want to paint your home a kooky color doesn’t mean you’re allowed to. If your home is in an area with a homeowner’s association, check to see if you’re even allowed to paint your home a whacky color. Sometimes limitations and rules are set for the colors you can choose to paint your home with.

Money
If you’re looking to paint your home a darker shade, be aware that it may cost you more money. Darker colors oftentimes require more coats, but it is the future you should also worry about. When you want to paint your home again down the road, it will take even more coats of paint to cover up that dark red color you chose last time.

Giving your home a fresh coat of paint can revitalize the look of your house, but keep a few things in mind if you want to pick a crazy looking color. When you want your home to be a new color and also want to fix your siding, consider installing one of the many colors of vinyl siding.
