How to Choose Exterior Colors

This week, Zillow offers some advice on choosing exterior paint colors for your home. 
At $50 a gallon or more for quality exterior latex, you can’t afford to make a mistake. And if you don’t like the colors, your neighbors probably won’t either; colors have public impact — you’re not the only one who has to live with them.

But a little research and planning can help you get started with the confidence that the final paint job is one that you – and your neighbors — will be pleased with.

But don’t just take your painter’s suggestions, and don’t chicken out by choosing the same colors as the house down the street. Get past the fear with these simple steps for figuring out how to give the outside of your home the perfect new look.
