A Little Color Can Go a Long Way!

Is there a way to show off your favorite color on your home within your paint job without leaving your neighbors wondering, “What in the world were they thinking?!” The answer is yes! While off-beat exterior paint jobs make sense for some neighborhoods, most homeowners want to use eye-catching colors in more subtle ways. 

With over 15 years of experience serving Sonoma County, Timmins Painting has perfected the art of adding pops of color where they are needed most. Read on to find out four popular places homeowners add color to their home’s exterior.

Front Door

The front door is one of the first things a visitor will see when approaching your home, and it is the perfect place to add some color. It doesn’t have to be a neon hue, either. Depending on your style, a deep Navy Blue or Hunter Green could make a bold statement without being too flashy. 

House Trim

The exterior trim of a house is the finish materials on a building, such as moldings. Bringing these accent features to life with a color different from your siding is sure to make a statement. Not only does a separate color trim keep you from monochromatic madness, it accentuates architectural features that could be otherwise lost. 

Window Shutters

Colored window shutters, like a front door, also make a big statement. While shutters have practical uses, like privacy or keeping the home cool on hot days, many homeowners invest in window shutters as a decorative element. Some people choose to match their shutters with their home’s trim color. 

Other popular shutter colors include blues, dark greens, and charcoal gray. White or black paint adds a modern touch to traditional homes. 

Window Planter Boxes

Do you keep decorative planter boxes outside of your windows? Commonly known as ‘window boxes,’ this decorative feature is the perfect place to add some color. There are a few things that can influence your color choice: what color scheme are you using for siding and trim? Maybe they will match the window shutter color you have chosen.
