Colour Your Home for Curb Appeal

E-mail to a Friend Add to Favourites Print

A fresh exterior colour scheme is one of the quickest, most cost-effective ways to enhance your home's curb appeal. In the examples below, you can see how different colour combinations express certain styles while highlighting the architectural details of different types of homes.

No matter what your exterior surface is, you have a choice of thousands of gorgeous Benjamin Moore colours for your home. When choosing an exterior coating, check out Aura® exterior paint and Arborcoat® exterior stains for superior performance and protection. Benjamin Moore also offers a range of colours designed specifically for vinyl siding.

You don't have to paint the entire exterior of your home to create a fresh look. Adding colour to a few elements, such as doors or shutters, can produce striking results.
