Question

Help me on exterior paint please


I'm new for exterior paint. My problem is I don't know which color scheme to choose. We just bought the house.

My wife would like to have white/blue tone but we don't know how to apply them. White and blue/gray on trims, porch railing? The current shutters are dark green but we can easily change to dark blue.

I plan to use SW duration since we don't have to use much paints (small house).

Also, I'd appreciate for landscape comments for the porch.
  • I think the porch railing should have more posts. Now they seem too far apart.
  • I would like to remove all bushes in the front off (now they are two layer of bushes). Would that make it look better?
Thanks,

Kanu

I would play around with one of the online virtual painting software applications available from the paint companies. The one at the Benjamin Moore site will let you import your own photos or pick one that is similar to your house.
