Being expert Victorian home painters, we have a few tips and tricks that can make your Victorian home exterior look its best!
Victorian homes have the luxury of being able to use a variety of different colors in their exterior schemes. While many modern and contemporary homes look best using a maximum of two exterior colors, Victorian homes can use as many as five due to their small accents and ornate features. When selecting exterior paint colors, it’s important to keep a scheme in mind. Popular Victorian home color schemes include:
Bold and Bright
Neutral and Subdued
Watch Out for Weather
When it comes to exterior painting Denver weather can wreak havoc on your Victorian home’s exterior. The hot sun can make paint fade quicker than normal due to Denver’s high elevation and drastic temperature changes from day to night can also weaken the paint’s integrity. If the exterior paint is a bit older and becoming cracked, rain and snow can cause the cracks to worsen and chips to form. If this begins to happen it’s important to get the exterior paint touched up as soon as possible to prevent it from worsening. And, who knows, you might want to try out a whole new exterior color scheme all-together!
Keep Up with Maintenance
As with all homes, it’s important to keep your exterior paint in good condition to prevent abnormal wear and tear. Due to the often-ornate detail of Victorian homes, worn and faded paint can be more apparent and effect the overall look of the exterior more. Ensuring your exterior paint is in good shape with no cracks or chips will not only boost your home’s curb appeal but also better protect it from the elements.
