The first contact of anyone who passes in front of the building, whether a visitor or a passerby, is the façade of the residence. It is she who imprints the style and personality soon in the outer area of the house. So deciding how the façade looks will require a good architectural design, as well as painting and house colors .
The study of the facade has several alternatives, from what it wants to highlight until a composition of different colors and materials. One of the options that have an excellent cost-benefit for those who want to save and beautify the façade is the application of painting. But it takes dedication in the choice of colors, after all, each tone conveys a feel and values the architecture differently.
How to choose colors for the front of the house?
There are three important points to consider when choosing colors: style, function and durability. Taking these characteristics into account, getting to the end result satisfied is much easier than going to a paint house and checking out the endless shades of the showcases.
When we started designing a house, we soon defined the style of it, because that is what defines the taste of the residents. Stay with it in every decision you make about finishes and colors, this will help you define the best color that matches the design. To keep the look nice, look for shades that value the shapes and architecture of the house. Soon more we can check how to apply the colors according to each style!
Try to find out what that color transmits to the façade. An example is to paint the house in red, that construction can refer to a commercial point. And if that's not the proposal, try applying the color to some detail of the architecture, be it a pillar, a volume that protrudes out, a door and so on. Everything can be taken into account, provided there is meaning.
Everyone is looking to keep the house beautiful, so maintenance should be done every 3 years due to the natural wear of the paint. Consider the specifications of each manufacturer, so that it is a high quality and specialized product for facades. Remember that this holds for any color tint, either the more intense ones that tend to lose color intensity, or the lighter ones that look more like accumulated dirt from rains, earths, stains and other wastes.
