Choosing Colors When Painting Old Homes

Updating the facade of an older home brings up one important question SPPI exterior painters and home owners ask: Stay true to history or update the look?

You can go either way. You can recreate the original look by having a professional analyze old paint chips to bring back the color scheme that was used when your home was built. You can also steer from the past and give your home an updated feel by using modern shades that can actually play up its architectural details. Be careful though when being an adventurous exterior painter. An outrageous color scheme may fit into more cosmopolitan areas but may stick out like a sore thumb in neighborhoods that are a tad conservative.
