How to Choose Exterior Paint Colors for Your House
So you’re painting your house, huh? Great! Having trouble choosing the right color? No problem!
It’s important to keep in mind the color scheme of the things that can’t change – for instance the roof shingles, the stonework, the driveway, etc.
Additionally, testing out various colors before painting the whole house can go a long way towards getting the exact color you want on the exterior of your home.
Best Exterior Paint Colors with Brick

It is important to remember that the best exterior paint colors are those which complement the color of the brick itself. Red paint might not be the best choice to paint the exterior of your house with if you also have red brick.
Blending the colors, or contrasting them is an important point of distinction to remember when it comes to house painting, in addition to general color-scheme rules.
