Transform Your Home’s Exterior: Choosing the Perfect Paint Colors with Gerber Lumber

A fresh coat of exterior paint can dramatically transform your house. Of course, the right color choice is essential if you want this to be a good transformation! Your color selection must match your personal style and the architecture of your home to truly enhance your curb appeal. Fortunately, as your destination for paint, supplies, and expert advice, you’ll find everything you need at Gerber Lumber.

Key Considerations for Color Selection

When it comes to your home’s color selection, you should first consider its architectural style. The suitable color palettes for traditional or modern homes can be quite different. Our expert staff can help you determine which colors best match your home’s architecture.

Of course, you must also consider neighborhood harmony. Do you want your home to blend in, or stand out? Are there neighborhood rules or restrictions regarding different color options? Gerber Lumber’s color samples can be used for on-site testing so you can find the right balance.

Trending Colors & Inspiration

There are so many exterior color palettes to choose from that it can often feel overwhelming! Some popular options are off-whites, gray-blue, and tones that mix browns, grays, and greens for a more natural look. If you’re feeling bold, extra-dark hues (including black) can make quite the statement.

You should also consider accent options. A bold accent color for the trim or doors can add a splash of personality–just be sure it’s a good match for your primary color.

Beyond the Color: Supplies & Prep

Painting your home exterior is a big undertaking. That’s why quality paints, stains, primers, and tools are an absolute must. The right tools and materials will make each stage of the job easier–from surface prep to applying the final coat – and ensure that your paint job stands up to the elements.
