Exterior House Color Combinations For Your Home
Shortly after we launched our roofing and siding services at TeVelde And Co., we quickly recognized the importance of having our own in-house painting crew. It just made sense to offer our painting and staining services to our clients and the Omaha metro area.

Getting started is the first step. Here are a few tips and basic design principles can help you build a color scheme that you’ll love for years to come but please know our project managers are ready to help you out!
Finding the Best Siding Color For Your Home
Your home’s siding will act as the foundation of your exterior house color scheme.
Choosing a single color is the easiest option, but don’t feel limited. There are plenty of siding color combinations available. If you’re considering using two main body colors, it’s best to use a darker color on the bottom half of your home. This will anchor your home to the ground and help your home look more natural (most natural environments fade from dark to light).

Once you have a range of siding colors in mind, you can start to match it to other components.
Matching Siding With Trim
The use of color as a design tool is very important when it comes to curb appeal. Trim should complement your siding color and elevate the entire look of your home. Explore these siding and trim color combinations to find inspiration from tried-and-true palettes.
Accenting With Shutters
Adding accents to your home’s exterior can provide much-needed visual upgrades. Shutters build on your home’s overall color palette, so they should be one of the last decisions you make. Choosing neutral colors will help your shutters seamlessly blend into your scheme. Or, you can use them as a true accent piece with bold selections. These house and shutter color combinations will help you visualize the possibilities.
Choosing a Front Door Color
Refreshing or replacing your front door is an inexpensive update relative to other home improvement projects. But with nearly limitless paint color options, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. James Hardie’s guide on how to pick a front door color is a great place to start.
