Color Your Home for Curb Appeal

E-mail to a Friend Add to Favorites Print

A fresh exterior color 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 color 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 colors for your home. When choosing an exterior coating, check out Aura® exterior paint and Arborcoat® exterior stains for superior performance and protection. If your home is made with vinyl siding, we recommend using Regal® Select Exterior REVIVE™ for Vinyl Siding. This premium exterior paint is formulated for optimal performance on vinyl siding and trim. It is available in a wide range of light and dark colors that are safe for vinyl siding.

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