Giving your home a fresh coat of paint is a great way to make it feel new and boost curb appeal. But did you know that paint color could also improve your home’s value? Whether you’re looking to sell your home or not, updating the color and raising its value will benefit your equity.

But what colors should you choose?

Check out this guide to exterior paint colors for seven palettes that could be perfect for your St. Louis home.

1. Navy and White

Did you know that painting your home a dark color can improve its resistance to heat? A dark color can both protect the material that your home is made of, but it can also make your home cooler and more energy efficient.

Some dark grays work well with large houses, but dark navy is usually best on a smaller home. With navy, white works perfectly as a contrasting trim color.

2. Colonial Blue and Gray

If you like blue, but don’t want something as bold as navy, colonial blue is good, softer option. Combined with a bluish gray, this look will be a perfect way to create a classic look.

3. Beige and Brown

Of course, there are other options for a classic look. A light beige can be the perfect color for your home if you are looking for something light and simple.

This color works particularly well if you have brown roof shingles. Brown can also be a good complementing color for shutters.

4. Peach or Rose with Beige or Green

Not all home colors need to neutral. If you want something that will make your house stand out on the block, a light pink color like peach or rose can work quite well. These colors also pair well with a light, leafy green. That said, if you only want one stand-out color, a simple beige will also do the trick.

5. Slate with a Contrasting Door

If you don’t want to paint your entire house a unique color, there are other ways you can introduce them in the palette of your home.

A strong, slate gray works as a good neutral base for your home. This color can be well contrasted with a bright color such as red, yellow, orange, or even turquoise for the door. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can paint both the door and shutters in the contrasting color.

6. Red and White

For the perfect combination of classic and interesting, red with white trim works well. Red, especially a deep, brick red is a timeless look. And, especially if you have a lot of greenery in your yard, it contrasts well with the foliage.
