Paint Colors


Is it okay to paint the walls in the back of your house (patio) a different color than the rest of the house? My house is painted a cream color, which I dont mind for the front, but its doesn't give my patio the look I want.

My husband thinks it will look silly, I disagree

Thats the beauty of paint!! It's fairly cheap and can be any colour you want...If you keep it clean and tidy (the cuts that is) you can do anything..Just be sure to keep any corners clean to be sure the contrasting colours look to form a strait line when looking on from the corner down both walls

There's no Law that says that the back of a house needs to be the same colour as the rest of the house. If painting the back of the house makes some kinda sense for some kinda reason to you, then paint the back of the house a different colour.

I'd just paint a little bit, I think that I'd have to agree with your husband that it might look a little odd...but you can try it and see what you think?

Maybe paint the front the same color that you like for your patio?
