If you’re looking to invest in a few home improvements this year, then we recommend focusing on your home’s exterior – especially if the paint has begun to chip or fade due to exposure to the elements over time, or if the colors are simply outdated. If you’re in need of some exterior design ideas for your Kansas City home, then we suggest considering some of the color trends predicted to catch on in 2015:
When choosing a color for the main part of the exterior, you don’t want it to be something that’s too bold. A bold color can be a little visually overwhelming, taking away from all of the other features your home has. Not to mention that you don’t want your house sticking out like a sore thumb in your neighborhood. This is why you should consider neutral colors, such as champagne beige, white alyssum, desert taupe or frosted almond. Neutral colors such as these are not only beautiful choices, but they don’t distract from your home’s architectural features and are easily complimented with the colors you choose for the trim around your windows and doors – not to mention the doors themselves.
When choosing a color for your trim or your door, go ahead and use a bolder color, such as red dahlia, vineyard green or stonewash. These colors will help make your shutters, windows and doors pop out visually and will give your home some personality. They will also work as a beautiful contrast to the neutral color that you’ve chosen for the main part of your home.
