Choosing an exterior color scheme for your home is quite a challenge. First, how do you know you’ve chosen the right colors to accent your home’s exterior? What colors on doors, windows, or trim can highlight or accent your home’s architectural details? Needless to say, the existing features like the roof and siding should blend into a cohesive look.
For homes sporting a contemporary façade, contrasting sharp lines and the shine of steel and glass can be complemented with earthy neutrals while muted hues, like variations of pastel blue, beige, green or aqua, go well with country cottage-styled themes. You can ask professional contractors roofing in Charlotte NC about what colors match with this current trend:
