The Perfect Exterior Colors for Your Jacksonville FL Home

Deciding on paint colors can be the hardest part of an exterior painting project.  The paint and materials are an investment, and then there is the pressure of choosing colors that will look great on your particular home and in your particular neighborhood, and that will stand the test of time.

Jacksonville FL is home to many diverse and beautiful neighborhoods.  Use our tips for planning the best possible color scheme for your own home!

  • Let the color contrast with the landscape.  If your yard is shaded with dense, deep green trees, try choosing a pale neutral or pastel for the house.  In contrast, if your property includes many flowering trees or tropical flowers, choose a gray or cream for the home in order to highlight the bright colors in the yard.
  • Vary shades of a single color.  For example, you can identify an accent piece on the home, such as shutters or trim, and paint the accent items either a darker or lighter shade than the color of the house’s siding.
  • Work with the color of existing materials.  For example, if a portion of your home is made of stone or brick, let the colors of these masonry materials dictate the colors you choose for the other areas of siding.  
  • Let the style of your home determine its palette.  Your Craftsman style home in Riverside Avondale would look best in the earth tones loved by the designers of that era.  Your stucco home in San Marco would look best in beige or other pale neutrals, perhaps with an accent color to add an extra measure of character.  Research your home’s era and borrow boldly from the time period.  
  • Take cues from the neighborhood. Look to the other homes in your neighborhood for inspiration, and specifically, from the homes on your very street.  Do you live in a beachfront home along Ponte Vedra Beach?  Use beach-inspired neutrals, or a palette that emulates the sea itself.  Do you live on a shady, tree-lined street in Mandarin?  In that case, you might incorporate deeper earth tones, in order to blend into the surrounding nature.  
  • Go with a “tried and true.”  When in doubt, rely on a classic scheme for your home, such as a beige or gray siding with white trim, or white siding with dark trim and a colorful front door.
