Applying Pantone’s Colors of the Year to Your Home Exterior

For over 20 years, Pantone’s Color of the Year has influenced product development and purchasing decisions in multiple industries. Everything from fashion to industrial design takes inspiration from these shades. This year, Pantone decided that 2021 deserved not one, but two colors.

At Paint Denver, we’re always looking for fun and innovative styles and shades to keep our work up to date. These exciting colors are perfect shades to incorporate into an upcoming exterior home painting job. 

Illuminating

Warming and optimistic, Pantone’s Illuminating is reminiscent of strength and positivity. It is a color that encapsulates the promise of something sunny and friendly.

If you have dreams of tackling an exterior home painting job in the spring, this color will look beautiful in any Denver metro neighborhood. While yellow is often seen as a bold color choice for the exterior of a home, it can act as a stylish and exciting accent that brings a cheery feeling to your home’s aesthetic. Try using it on a front door or trim for an extra pop of sunny color! 

Ultimate Gray 

Gray has been a cornerstone color in interior and exterior style for year now. Practical and rock solid, this gray shade works in tandem to add sophistication and depth to its yellow counterpart. 

Ultimate Gray inspires thoughts of solid and dependable natural elements which are everlasting. The colors of pebbles on the beach and natural elements whose weathered appearance highlights an ability to stand the test of time, this shade assures encouraging feelings of composure, steadiness, and resilience.

Tips for Choosing Exterior House Painting Colors

Choosing to paint your exterior can feel like a difficult task because of the labor and cost involved with exterior house painting. The pressure of choosing the perfect color can cause families to postpone the project indefinitely.

However, a fresh coat of paint can be one of the most beneficial and long-lasting home improvement projects you can tackle. Take it from the pros, there are good and bad choices when it comes to choosing exterior house painting colors. That being said, there are few tips you should take heed to ensure the color you’re imagining comes to fruition.

Take in the Surroundings

Start by looking at the style of your home. A ranch style home with brick detailing may be complimented best with a different color than a Victorian style home. Also, take note of the other homes in your community.

While you probably don’t want to look like a row of cookie cutter houses, you don’t want to stand out too much and reduce curb appeal for any future sales. If your neighborhood is filled with earth toned homes, you can’t go wrong by following with that theme.

Consider Trends, But Don’t Fall Victim to Them

It’s a great idea to consider recent design and architecture trends when choosing a new color for the exterior of your home. However, you should remember that they’re just that – trends.

Statement colors fade with every passing year and you want to be sure if you’re choosing a paint color based solely on what a magazine is telling you to do, you genuinely like it and imagine it lasting for years to come.

Take Note of the Landscape

Look at your house at different times of the day. One of the biggest problems we see as professional painters in Denver is paint color variations depending on sunlight. Is your home in broad sunlight all day long, or is it primarily in the shade due to large trees?

Sunlight and shade will give you different color hues, so make sure your landscaping is exactly the way you want it before you start making decisions on a paint color.

A Denver Paint Job That Will Last

If you’re unsure about your choices after considering all these variables, safe is always a sound decision. Two tints from the same color strip a few shades apart will always work well together.

Our team at Paint Denver has over 20 years of experience in the home renovation industry and can help you make a decision you’ll be satisfied with. Give us a call to discuss any upcoming projects.

Exterior Painting and Other Small Home Improvements to Help Sell Your Home Faster

Selling a home can be a stressful and tedious process. From exterior painting to budget-friendly kitchen renovations, there are dozens of little projects you can tackle in order to make the selling process go more smoothly.

Replacing Hardware

This is one of the most inexpensive and efficient ways to update the interior of your home.

Nothing exposes the age of your home more than outdated or old hardware. Doorknobs, cabinet handles, and light fixtures are simple and affordable components that will bring updated style to your home.

Be sure to focus these improvements in the kitchen whenever possible. An updated kitchen is one of the biggest draws to potential homebuyers as it is often seen as the “heart” of the house.

Exterior Painting

Curb appeal is a major component in selling a home. Any homebuyer who has shopped the real estate market knows that sprucing up the exterior of a home is a major key to selling quickly.

Hiring professional exterior house painters can take your home from drab to fab and increase the selling price dramatically. When painting your home’s exterior, make sure to keep up to date with trends and neighborhood characteristics. If you choose to stick with soft neutral colors, make sure you incorporate some color in the finishing details or with landscaping choices.

Fix Your Flooring

Flooring makes a huge difference in a home.

Replacing your flooring altogether may be a more expensive renovation. But replacing or improving the floors in some of the main rooms in your house is a great way to cut costs. Chances are, you’ll also increase the chances of a quick sale.

Many buyers place an emphasis on a home being ‘move in ready.’ This means that if your flooring is outdated, damaged, or poorly maintained, it may be a deterrent for buyers looking for their perfect home.

Consider a fresh coat of paint on the floors or deep carpet cleaning to increase the interior appeal of your home.

Upgrade Your Home the Right Way

Ultimately, you are the best judge of the renovations you should prioritize for your home. Budget, neighborhood markets, and nearby properties are all variables to consider when preparing your home for a sale.

If you’re selling your home or are helping someone sell theirs, contact us today for a free quote on exterior or interior paint jobs.

Get A Virtual Painting Estimate

We have begun to make virtual painting estimates for clients to protect against the spread of COVID-19. Generally, a Paint Denver salesperson would come to the prospective customer’s home and have a free estimate of the painting project within 30-45 minutes. We are trying to limit the people in our client’s homes. Including virtual painting estimates through video calls, real-estate photographs, and pictures is one way to do so.

Our highest priority at Paint Denver is to keep our customers and crew safe and secure. While we continue to innovate new ways to serve our customers, offering virtual estimates is one of the many ways we’re adapting to better serve our customers in these unprecedented times.

Virtual Estimate Benefits

Virtual painting estimates have many benefits in keeping our customers and workers secure. It eliminates in-person contact, as measurements and project information will be collected through phone, video, photo, or a communication method that works best for you.

Virtual estimates also help you check projects off your to-do list while you’re at home. Having a price quote and choosing who to hire can often be the longest part of the painting process, and thanks to virtual estimates, we can work together to complete this stage easily.

If the project is to be completed exclusively outdoors, it is possible that work could start now, as interaction with the teams would be unnecessary. This will be decided by the unique limitations of your county.

How to Schedule a Virtual Estimate

You can visit our website and send a request via our contact form. A salesperson will be contacting you shortly after. You may also request an estimate through our Facebook page by selecting “Book Now.”

A phone call at 303-800-7575 can also be an option to simply ask for a virtual estimate through the phone. We will send a confirmation email containing the date and time for which you are scheduled.

What if I Prefer an In-Person Estimate? 

We recognize that often technology does not substitute in-person experiences. In general, on-site estimates can also be made for exterior projects, as well as empty buildings such as uninhabited homes and closed businesses or schools.
