EXTERIOR PAINTING: THE ONE THING THAT WILL SAVE YOUR HOME (AND WALLET)
Thinking of getting a fresh new look for your home exterior? A professional paint job may just be what you need. We’re seeing fantastic paint colors around Kansas City this year that can make any house look stunning! The most stylish homes in 2023 are clad in soft white hues, dramatic blacks, and even some blue and green shades. Read on and see which trending exterior paint color would be perfect for your home.
1. Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter HC-172
This off-white paint color is a rich, versatile neutral that can shift between warm and cool tones depending on the lighting. It’s a great pick if you want a clean, foolproof look for the body of your house. You can then create a crisp contrast by painting your trims a solid black color, or complement the smoothness of the white with soft gray trims, just like this beautiful home we repainted last month.
2. Sherwin-Williams Iron Ore SW 7069
If you love deep dark colors, this exterior house paint is for you. It’s a nice charcoal black that looks sophisticated whether as a primary body color or an accent color. Just a few days ago, we painted a Kansas City house this shade, contrasted by a rich wood stain for the trims. The result is cool, elegant, and eye-catching all at once.
3. Sherwin-Williams Naval SW 6244
This navy-blue shade is gorgeous for home exteriors! It brings a subtle pop of color while still looking solid and timeless. Pair it with bright white trim for a classic contrast, or juxtapose it against warm wood tones like walnut or cherry to make your home look stately. Just take a look at this Lathrop, MO paint job, where our deep blue color palette elevates the ambiance of a family home.
4. Sherwin-Williams Rare Gray SW 6199
Ever considered a green color for your house exterior? This beautiful green-gray shade just might convince you. It’s actually a cool gray hue with a laurel-colored undertone, making it a neutral that’s a touch more interesting than others. As an exterior house color, it’s regal and timeless, especially when paired with white trim.
5. Sherwin-Williams Granite Peak SW 6250
This combination of slate gray and steel blue is the perfect shade if you want your exteriors to look refreshing but not glaring. It’s colored enough to make an impression but is as classic as a dependable pair of jeans. For an even more polished look, use this color with white trim and dark-colored doors, just like this Liberty, MO house we just repainted.
6. Sherwin-Williams Snowbound S-W 7004
A white-colored house never goes out of style, and this gray-toned paint color is one of the easiest whites to use (and to look at!). We especially love its shady cool tone that prevents it from being jarring to the eye. Last March, we used this hue on a Parkville, MO home and completed the look with black trims and doors. It’s bound to look gorgeous throughout the seasons.
7. Sherwin-Williams Black Fox SW 7020
This sumptuous brown-black color is a warm kind of dark, which makes it stand out from the moody, dark-colored houses this year. It coordinates beautifully with neutrals like creamy whites and warm wood tones, creating an inviting palette for home exteriors. Our favorite use of this paint color is this Kansas City paint job we did, where this cozy black hue completes the brick facade of the home.
8. Sherwin-Williams Light French Gray SW 0055
This one’s a classic neutral that’s also a breath of fresh air. Whisper-light yet solid, it’s a gray color that brightens the home in a subtle, elegant way. It can work with virtually any accent color, but we highly recommend a bright, contrasting shade on your door to make it pop! In our recent repainting example, note the lovely contrast of the blue door against the light gray house color.
9. Sherwin-Williams Courtyard SW 6440
Speaking of gorgeous doors, we have to spotlight this rich hunter-green shade that looks sensational on doors and doorframes. Green isn’t extremely common as an exterior paint color, so when a perfect green hue such as this appears, it’s all the more striking. We recently used this door color on a house with a light-gray body paint, and it looks sophisticated!
10. Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray SW 7029
You can’t go wrong with a paint color called “Agreeable Gray.” It’s a pale gray color with a beige undertone, making it a warm neutral that’s full of possibilities. You can definitely play around with vivid coordinating colors for this one, but we also love going modern and monochromatic by pairing this light hue with a heavier gray. An example is this Kansas City exterior repainting that uses the light shade for the body and the darker one for the trim and doors.
