We have previously discussed the pros and cons of painting your brick exterior, so if you have decided that you are going to do it, how do you determine what color is right for you?
There are many colors out there in the world of brick painting and some are better than others for your personal brick painting needs.
With that being the case, let us look at and consider nine colors to use while painting your brick exterior in Southlake, TX.
Though you may be inclined to think this an odd choice, this color actually makes sense from a couple of different perspectives.
White is a color that reflects light and so a brick house that is painted white tends to stay cooler in the summer time.
If you live in a warmer region you may want to consider white as a color for your brick house.
Green works well if you are a fan of nature though you have to really be careful about what green you choose for this as there are some greens that are quite unnatural.
You may do well to choose a forest green as this will look more like the kinds of greens that you see in a wooded area.
Blue brings to mind the color of the sky and of course also the color of the ocean.
It may do you well to take a few samples of the paint in different shades of blue to see which one is most appropriate for your home.
True, brick does tend to come naturally red, but there is something that is just aesthetically pleasing about a painted brick that is red.
Though to some there are certain shades of red that bring to mind a firehouse, you can get away with painting your brick house red if you are careful with the colors that you choose for the trim.
Gray sometimes will come across as a rather dull color but it absolutely doesn't have to be -- there are many shades of gray (excuse the pun) that are rather bright and vibrant.
You can use yellow to go with it on the trim to really accentuate the gray color.
If you like the idea of a lighter color house but don't want to go all the way to the extreme of white, you can opt for a cream colored brick house.
Cream gives some of the benefits of the white house in that it reflects much light but it has a different aesthetic that some people prefer.
Maroon is a brownish-crimson color that may be a nice alternative to painting your brick house strictly red.
It can likely go well with accents and trim that are brown to complement the crimson elements.
A yellow brick painted house will of course remind people of the Wizard of Oz but there is much more to it than that.
You can consider using white and gray for trim to your yellow brick house if you go with a more pale shade of yellow, or perhaps use a green or brown trim if you have a deeper yellow that may even trend toward looking gold.
Plum is a purple like color that is rich and will add a splendid look to your brick home.
It will enhance your home and improve the overall curb appeal.
Overall it has a regal sense to it and may be your best choice if you are going for a certain elegant look.
