Choosing Exterior House Colors

Choosing an exterior color for painting your Miami home can be overwhelming. There are so many colors to choose from. Then you also have to find out if you want a lighter color or a darker one.

Light or Dark – Pros and Cons

Painting a lighter exterior color on the house has many advantages. First off it reflects sunlight. This means heat will not accumulate on the exterior walls. This helps keep the house cooler.

Apart from getting the appearance of being dirtier or grimier, that is basically one of the drawbacks of painting your house white.

Dark colors, like a dark grey or black, gives a strong contrast amongst the greenery surroundings. This look will definitely set you apart from the rest of the neighborhood. Especially with black, you really don’t need to worry about the trim. Black is such a bold statement that it doesn’t even need a different color for the trim.

One of the bad things about painting your house a dark color is that the paint won’t last as long as a lighter color. This is because darker colors absorb more UV rays.
