Hot Color Trends in Exterior Painting for 2021


After spending so much time at home over the last year and half, you’ve decided to repaint your exteriors now that gatherings are becoming normal again. But which color(s) should you choose? When you go into the paint store, you’re instantly surrounded with nearly limitless options, and it can quickly become overwhelming. We’re here to help you make the right choice for exterior painting! Read on to learn what colors are in style right now to guide you in your selection.

Light Neutrals for Walls

If you’re considering painting your home’s exteriors, lighter colors are a safe bet. Here are just a few of the most popular shades to think about.

Warm, Creamy White

Although you don’t want to paint your outside walls with a true white, a warm, creamy white color is the perfect choice for brightening up your home and making it stand out in the best possible way.

Pale Gray

Although gray decreased in popularity in 2020, pale gray is a great alternative to beige and can add variety to your street’s aesthetics.


Believe it or not, beige is still a great choice for painting your home. However, you should choose a  shade of beige that doesn’t run the risk of turning yellow.

Pale Green and Blue Accents

Paired with one of the light neutral wall colors, pale shades of green or blue are calming yet still visually interesting.

Black Accents

On the opposite end of the spectrum, black is also in style for accents. It’s a great choice if you want something bold!

Two Tones

Depending on the style of your home, you may want to have two main colors. For instance, ranch-style homes look great with complimentary shades.

Wood Trim

Don’t be afraid to add some contrast to the exteriors, even if that contrast is a different texture altogether. Wood, as well as other earthy paint colors, are definitely worth considering.

Knowing the current trends is certainly helpful, but you still have many options available to you. At this point, you may be wondering how you’re ever going to make such an important decision.
