Prescott House Painting Tips

Prescott House PaintingChoosing colors for your Prescott house painting project may prove to be more difficult than you think. This is because a wrong choice of shade can either make your house appear too subtle or too vivid. The wrong color choice can also lead your house to appear featureless and plain. On the opposite extreme, bold colors can overwhelm the entire architecture of your home. This may also be a cause of disappointment on the part of your neighbors.

To optimize the colors that you will choose for your exterior painting project, it is better to choose shades that will highlight the most interesting parts of your house. If you can do this correctly, you may even be successful in hiding unsightly marks and other forms of imperfections that may be found on your house. It can result to your houses’ better visual appeal and market value.

If your Prescott home is more than ten years old, you may want to use a color scheme that can highlight its advanced age. Usually, you can achieve this effect using classic color schemes. For this task, you may hire a contractor to recreate the original shade of the house painting and to examine the chips of the old paint. You may also refer to various historic color samples and choose the shades that were more likely used when the house was built.

If you want a new color scheme but still prefer to retain the classic touch of your house, you may opt to choose paint colors that emphasize the architectural details of your house. However, you should strike a good balance between applying modern shades to old designs and retaining the balance of the overall color for your entire house. It would also be a helpful to examine the exterior paint colors that your neighbors have been using on their houses to avoid standing out too much.

While the colors used for your neighbors’ houses can give you a hint on what exterior paint scheme to use, you should not copy the exact shades that they are using for their house painting projects. You should choose shades that can help your house to stand out without being an eyesore, while still producing harmony with the adjacent houses. A professional Prescott painting contractor can assist you with color designs and paint selection to make this whole process easier. So if you are having trouble, be sure to contact a professional house painter.

If you are having a hard time looking for color inspiration, you may want to consider using various elements from nature. For instance, look at the greenery that is surrounding your home and produce a color scheme that matches that. Experiment on the subtle shades that you see around you, and you may just find a color scheme that produces great results for your Prescott house painting project.

Another good reference that you can check out is the color of your roof. This does not mean that you should closely match the color of your house with the roof. This simply means that you should come up with various color combinations that harmonize with and complement the color of your roof.

There are some instances that there details in your house need not be painted. For cases like these, you should adequately inform your Prescott painting contractor before they set out to perform the painting job for you. This will significantly reduce the chances of having unsatisfactory results.
