With spring — and the dreaded spring cleaning — on the horizon, homeowners start putting a lot of thought into the best ways to spruce up their homes. And a fresh coat of exterior paint is a quick and easy way to give any residence a fresh new look.

But picking the right color scheme can be a challenge. As tastes and trends change over the years, now may be the perfect time to refresh your home’s tired or outdated look.

From classic styles to bold looks, painting the exterior of your home is an excellent way to showcase your personality. The following are some popular color schemes to keep your home looking fresh this summer.

White and Dark Chocolate

This is a great high contrast color combo that is perfect for a desert ranch style home that matches well with any outdoor accessory or furniture color. This color combination stands out especially well on a Spanish style home with high contrasting landscaping and a red tile roof. The white helps keep the home cool in the summer and any accent color can be chosen to compliment the color scheme.

Slate Gray and White

If you’re looking to capture a touch of sophistication, consider this gorgeous color scheme. It is an elegant and traditional look that goes well with wood shingle siding. Throw in some deep blues as an accent color, on the front door perhaps, and you will be in awe of this breathtaking combination.

Taupe and Beige

These more neutral tones are excellent for a traditional home with a vinyl siding. But this color scheme is far from boring. Earthy landscape tones and deep browns serve as great contrasting colors. A nice accent color can be applied to the front door. Red is a perfect option for this.

Cool Green and Pure White

Taking cues from woodland settings, this cool scheme evokes feelings of patience and calm. Meshing with nature while throwing in a few accent colors here and there will really make these colors sing. A soft yellow can do a lot to highlight trimmings and subtle accents.
