Exterior Paint Ideas for Contemporary Houses

The crisp lines and modern features of contemporary homes often set them apart from more classic residences. While painters can select nearly any colors they want to cover their abodes, some hue selections are more appropriate for these modern structures. When preparing to give your mod home a fresh coat of paint, talk to an expert about some of the options more appropriate for contemporary homes.

Earthy Hues

Many modern homes are designed with the Earth in mind. If your home features an assortment of eco-friendly additions, keep this eco-conciousnes in mind when selecting your exterior paint hues. Choose colors that are as earthy as the eco-friendly features your home contains. For example, paint the majority of the exterior a mossy green, using earthy browns as accents to tie this masterpiece together and show your affinity for all things green.

Two-Tone Painting

Highlight the contemporary features of your home by following a two-tone painting plan. Select two tones that contrast significantly, like white and black, and feature them both on your home for an attention-getting option. For example, paint the majority of your home white and the modern trims in black, making them stand out from the rest of the home and, in doing so, accentuating their individuality.

Metallic Grays

Many modern home designs feature metallic trims in place of the standard wooden ones. If your deck is crafted of metal and your trims are metal beams, accentuate these features by selecting grays to paint the rest of your exterior. Choose a dominate gray a few hues off of the metal accents on the exterior of your home to create the desired contrast and make the metallic trim on your home truly stand out.

Color Pops

Contemporary decorators are often not shy about using color, and the exterior of your home should be no exception. While you likely don’t want to cover your entire home in apple red, featuring this bold-as-can-be hue somewhere on your exterior can set your home apart. For example, painting your front door and garage door with this color, using a color that contrasts well, such as steely gray, on the rest of the home. This choice is particularly appropriate if there is something special about these items you choose to paint so boldly, such as a vivid wood design on your front door.
