The colors that your house sports on its exterior surfaces tell a lot about you. They reveal a great deal about your personality, your taste and possibly even your social outlook. Home painting is the combination of Interior as well as exterior painting. While there are many aspects that you can use to differentiate your house from the rest of the surrounding; color is the least expensive and easiest thing to alter. Before deciding on the paint job you need you decide that what you want your house to be; that is attractive to eyes or just a plain yet impressive figure in the locality? The choice is entirely yours and whatever be your answer, color will get it done for you. So let us take look at key points and tips that you need to consider while undertaking a paint job on your exterior walls.

* If you are looking for a flashy appeal, then go for sharp colors; high toned colors for a flashy house that speaks a loud from the distance.

* In case you prefer an understated elegance; light toned color is what you should look for. They give a sombre effect and the visual illusion of apparent big house rather than original size.

* If the exterior walls have a large surface area then go for a darker tint as larger surface area makes home painting looks faded.

* If in your mind some color combination is taking place then choose the matching contrast color. Extreme contrast subdues the effect.

* While deciding upon color samples use natural light for the study but not direct sunlight.

* If possible use light and pastel color to blend the architecture of house with natural surrounding. Changing sun rays and the shape of the house lends a regal texture to the exterior of the house at different time of the day.

* Mid tone add visual depth and warmth to your house exterior. Choose contrasting color with the main body paint.

* Deep color are known for the light absorbing power and creating illusions of the less volume than original yet provide substance to the exterior. Before using deep color test them on actual surface under different light shades

* Neutral color scheme is the most customizable method to paint the exterior. You can always opt for this method as there is always a chance that you might not like the final output so with neutral combination you can later on change the unpleasant wall. Since neutral paints absorbs most of the colors. Also this provides a cover to some necessary yet not a visual treat to eyes such as shutter door, roof sewage pipe etc.

* Do not buy all the paint at once. Just get small quantities of your possible choices and apply on a smaller region of wall. This will give you a nice feedback on how should you go about it.

This apart it is always advisable to take a look around to judge about the color pattern that dominates the entire area. It is a wise choice to match with the color tone of your neighbor if you are living in the colony.

In addition if you still have a doubt it is always better to consult a professional who can guide as per your specific needs.
