What colors should I paint the outside of my house?
As you look at homes on Long Island, you will find that the overwhelming majority of LI homes are painted with neutral colors. When I say neutral, I mean colors like white, beige, browns and grey's. The reasons is simple, they work, they don't stick out like a sore thumb. They remain congruous to the rest of the neighborhood and for that reason the upkeep and grooming of a home become the real factors in the homes curb appeal. The better a home is groomed the better the curb appeal.
If brighter, less neutral colors are used they should be concentrated primarily on the trim.
