How Paint Can Add Pop to Your Outdoor Space

By December 1, 2017 No Comments

Most homeowners know that a few cans of paint can do wonders to spruce up any room in a home. What many might not know is that paint is a great way to update your outdoor space as well. Here are some ways that you can use paint to add pop to the outside of your home. Of course, for any of these tips, you must use the appropriate outdoor paint.

A Welcome Feeling

A welcoming feeling is a great way to increase your home’s curb appeal. Painting your front door with a bright color will help make it inviting. A boldly colored door will also add some pop to your exterior without having to re-color the entire outside of the home. Many doors have imperfections, so avoid using a glossy paint that will highlight them.

On Outdoor Furniture

The paint does not have to be used on the actual house, either. It can be used to spruce up any furniture you have on the outside. You can update and refresh the look of the furniture, and match it to the surrounding area. You can go with a rustic or natural color, like green or beige, or you can go for a bold look with bold colors.

Blue Porch Ceiling

Why a blue porch ceiling, you ask? It is tradition for some people in the south to paint their porch ceiling blue to scare off evil spirits. For non-superstitious people, a blue porch ceiling can offer great visual appeal. It draws the eyes and can provide some real pop to your entrance area.

Highlight Natural Beauty

It’s never a bad idea to try to use the colors around your area for inspiration. Nature is the greatest designer of all, and there is no harm in “stealing” from it. Use colors that complement the nature that surrounds you, so that your home will look like part of the landscape. You can color your window ledges and frames to match the trees, flowers, and foliage around your home.

Paint is not just for sprucing up the inside of your home. With the right paint, and the right inspiration, you can add some pop to your outside space with a few cans of paint.
