Don’t Leave Your Home in the Dark
Not many of us want our home to feel dark and unwelcoming. Having the proper lighting on any home is very important for the safety of the home and the homeowners. The right lighting can also offer a beautiful and welcoming feel to the home at night time. Besides the normal lights fixtures that we have at every entrance doors and garage door around our homes, there are additional outdoor lighting options available that can be placed in different areas on the exterior portion of any home.
Choosing lights that complement the style of your home would be the best option for exterior renovations. Traditional or contemporary homes look great with a lantern style light fixtures hanging over the entranceway of the home or on either side of a door. If you have a modern style home try looking for a vertical steel light to add a sleek appeal to the home.
One other idea to consider when adding lights to the exterior of your home, adding pot lights under the eavestrough of the roof can add a delightful visual feature too.
Know what Colors will Work Best
So many colour choices to choose from!
How would you decide on what colours would be best for the exterior of your home? Do you like bold colours or would you prefer natural colours? There are a few ways to help you make your choice a little bit easier. Try to choose exterior colours that will be appealing at all times and that will work with the surroundings of the home. If you live in a forest region try a lighter colour to allow your home to be seen and not hidden. Like any other decorating project having the right colours is very important. It can hide any imperfections or it can draw unwanted attention to the imperfections.
The safest approach to take when selecting more than one colour for the exterior of the home would be to choose two shades or tints from the same paint pallet, but a few shades apart. If you choose a lighter or darker tone for the overall portion of the house, be sure to use the opposite for the trim around the home. A lighter house would work best with darker trim. And a darker house will look better with a lighter trim. If you want to add a third colour to your home try selecting a complementary colour that will really draw attention to your home and paint your door a bold or bright colour.
