12 Trending Home Exterior Colors
When considering a new exterior color scheme for your home, there are some tried-and-true combinations that will always be in style. But if you want to go big, there are some color updates trending you’ll want to consider. Here are 12 exterior house colors that will be hot in the years to come.
Blues and grays have been a popular exterior color for the last decade. Now designers are combining the two for blue-gray tones that result in a welcoming color choice for home exteriors. The hue is a great complement to stonework and wood trim.
An Unexpected Pairing
An emerging trend is to paint a home in two hues that normally wouldn’t be found in the same exterior color scheme. For example, try a gray on the siding with turquoise accents or a warm green with shutters in a cooler green hue.
Wood for Warmth
Warm up nearly any home’s exterior color with wood, which works extremely well when paired with a medium to dark color. And try wood shake siding, wood shutters or a wood garage door.
White as an exterior color never goes out of style. And the classic look can be updated with a bold front door and colorful landscaping.

Peaches and Cream
It’s not quite pink, not quite orange. Trending peach and apricot evoke a warm feel and work well in nearly every part of the country. And pair peach with black and white for a classic look, or try greens for an unexpected twist.

With the explosion of minimalist modern styles, layers of black are trending as a striking home exterior color. Blacks pair well with brick and wood and will work with both primary exterior home colors and grays for accents.
Classic exterior home colors such as tan and beige are getting an upgrade. And whether your home is a traditional Victorian, Colonial or a Craftsman bungalow, gray-beige or a warm tan will look nice. Try as Colonial Revival Stone (SW 2827) from Sherwin-Williams. And it pairs well with classic white and black, along with a door painted in a deep burgundy or a classic wood stain.
