When the calendar flips to a new year, you may feel energized to finally tackle home upkeep projects that are easily put off. If your home’s exterior is looking a tad lifeless and drab as a winter sky, it might be time for a total-home paint job.
However, there is a “cheat” that can help you achieve a house facelift without the significant investment of repainting your entire home: painting your doors, shutters, and trim. Once you’ve decided to take on these smaller exterior elements, the remaining decision is what colors to choose.
Ahead, we’re answering a few commonly asked questions about selecting colors for your trim, doors, and shutters. Take this coordinated-color example: If your shutters are a dark, muted brown with green undertones, an olive door would be a well-suited match.
For others, a crisp, clean white is the only way to go for the trim — so much of that decision depends on your house color and material. Whether you go neutral or bold, traditional or contemporary, your shutters should make your home “pop” in a good way.
