The facade of a house says a lot about the family that inhabits it and where it is located. However, this task has little difficulty. Is that to change the color of the facade of a house, you have to take into account some points:
- First of all, we must know about our environment. Where the house is located.
- Ideally, investigate the model of the house you have, that is, how it is built. This is important because you may have an architectural element that needs to be highlighted.
- Use some form of moisture blocker or waterproof before applying the final paint. This will prevent the interior from getting damp and help the paint last much longer without problems.
Now that we have the points to consider, let’s review some ideas to achieve that dreamy facade:
This type of color is associated with houses of a more rustic style, such as cabins or country houses. If you want the facade of a sober and elegant house for your country house, this is the option. Within the earth colors, we can highlight beige, browns, some types of green (somewhat brown), and others, among others.
Pastel or soft colors
If you don’t like to stand out a lot but still want to use a less common color, pastel or soft colors are your solution. They can be used in places like condos or small neighborhoods. They help to make the facade of a house look much more serene and cozy. They are a good option to discuss it with your neighbors and achieve something different together.
When I speak of muted colors, I do not mean that they are dark colors, but rather that they are not vibrant. In this sense, you can choose what in Chile call us “colonial colors.” An example is “ocher pink,” which combines excellently with a gray. They work quite well in houses with a continuous facade or also in country houses. They are colors that, having that ocher tone, last a long time, in addition to being very distinguished.
Although they are not colors, they give texture to the facade of a house. In that sense, they are a real contribution to the aesthetics of a house. They can be combined with each other, for example, a wood, stone cladding, or both together. They will make your house really look like another.
