Some House Color Combination Tips

  • I highly recommend you check out this website see: Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer where you find besides many good tips some online tools that let you colorize pictures of different house styles, kitchen and bathrooms, all online and with the click of a mouse it gives you examples like the ones I placed in that photo above this text, plus the good thing it also tells you the color code for each choice.

  • We have included also a hole section of color combination examples here in this website that includes many photos of different examples of some great color combinations check them out and get closer to find your personal taste.

  • Drive or walk around in your neighborhood and look specifically for color combinations you like and take some photos.

  • Remember that sometimes the more classic and maybe a bit more conservative color choices will still be liked after many years, while the strong and at first glance wow that's great looking color combinations are the ones you might get tired of faster. Now that does not mean to be shy and not to experiment with different options, at the contrary live your dream and go for what you like best, just sleep it over first and if not sure get some opinions from the profesionals.

  • Always be careful not to rely only on those small samples you see in the stores, paint some bigger samples on existing walls or cardboards and look at them in daylight. Once you see bigger samples the impression can be quite different then from those small samples only.

  • There are also some other cool color tools available online, even do most targeted at the webmasters to design their web pages they also can help you and give you some ideas of what colors go well together, see for example: Color Scheme Designer, ColourLovers Color Trends and 4096 Color Wheel, plus sure there are more, just google around.

  • Always get professional help when choosing what type of products you need and how much, its easy to buy just the cheapest product around but how long will it last, so make sure to get the right product for your house, plus get the right instructions of how to use the products. Because you don't want your walls to look like the ones shown below:

Paint coming of the wall, because the wrong way and product that where applied in this case
