Whether you want a total exterior renovation or a quick refresh, there’s nothing as powerful as a few coats of your favorite paint. However, choosing the right color is not always easy, especially with so many options available. Sure, in the Midwest, some classic combos never go out of style, such as light gray or arctic white. But, you can also experiment with more trendy hues like greens and reds. 

Luckily, we’re here to take a look at some upcoming exterior painting color trends and help you figure out which one works best for your home. So let’s get right into it!

Muted Greens

Not all types of greens can improve the curb appeal of your home. In fact, bright and forest greens are slowly becoming less popular, with muted tones taking center stage. Hues like fern green and pale muted green are going to steal the show all throughout 2022. That’s because they provide a calming effect and people often associate them with nature. 

Rustic Red

If you want to use a bold color like cherry red to paint your home’s exterior, you’ll need to find a way to balance it. That’s where rustic shades come in, offering the best of both worlds. Not only does rustic red feature a similar look and feel to traditional red, but it’s also less obnoxious. And, if you live in a wooden area, this shade will make your home blend in with the background in an almost fantasy way.

Warm Whites

White is a traditional color that’s incredibly popular all throughout the United States as a result of its association with innocence and cleanliness. In fact, it often reminds people of their childhoods, providing a familiar feeling whenever they notice it. But instead of the traditional, cooler white, you should try out warm whites. Doing so should give you many options and room to experiment with trim colors in order to create an attractive and unique home exterior. 

White Trims and Pale Grays

Speaking of trims, you can use white and gray to create a classy yet modern look. All you need to do is paint the main parts of your home’s exterior with a pale gray and then finish it up with warm white trims. This is an excellent choice for those who want to add some extra value to their home and make it stand out from the crowd.

Pale Blue

Blue is one of the few colors that have a similar issue as green. In other words, bright blue shades can detract from your home’s appearance, while paler tones are calming and peaceful. They are also inviting, beckoning your guests to stay longer for a glass of iced tea on the porch.
