ContrastOne thing to think about with designing your home exterior is contrast. Colors that are opposite actually go together well. If you want a stunning makeover without putting in a lot of effort, go with a contrasting color for your roof. If your exterior and trim are light, go for a darker color. If the body of your home is dark, then a lighter roof color will really pop.
AestheticsIt would be pretty hard to imagine a dark colored home with a dark roof doing well in the Florida sunshine. But, if a dark colored home were in the middle of an evergreen forest, it would blend in well with the surroundings. When you’re thinking about what color roof to do for your home, look at the homes around your’s and see what style they chose. If you want to blend well with the local area, choose something similar to the style of your neighbors.
TimelessClassic colors look good no matter what the latest trending style is. Sometimes homes can look dated because they fit into the trend from that time, like in the 90’s, a monochromatic look was popular for homes. Everything on the exterior was the same color, from the siding, to the trim, to the roof. A classic design will look good 10 years from now as much as it does today. If you want a classic look for your home, choose a roof color that is calm and not too bright. Some examples of classic colors are navy, cream, gray, dark green, or tan.
