The right exterior wall color doesn’t only turn heads, but it can also add to your home’s value. Even if you have no plans to sell it in the near future, it’s advisable to give your home a fresh coat of color. Here are some recommendations from Mid South Coatings:


The 2017 Cost vs. Value Report considers “greige” – the combination of gray and beige – as one of the hottest colors for homes. As a matter of fact, properties that have this shade or variants of it on their exterior have been sold for more than white homes, according to Zillow analysts.

Anyone experienced in exterior painting and coating can tell you that neutral colors, especially subtle ones like “greige”, never get old. Their ability to show off bolder hues and allow countless colorful opportunities makes them a flexible choice.

Darker Color That Complements Your Roof

Don’t use a wall color that is exactly the same as the color of your roof. That can make your home look lifeless and uninteresting, so its curb appeal suffers.

As an experienced exterior painting company, Mid South Coatings suggests complementary colors to create visual harmony and lend more dimension to your home. If you have a dark roof, use darker colors at the bottom of your exterior to prevent that top-heavy feel.

Color Close to That of Your Neighbor’s Home

As much as you’d like to highlight your individuality and make your home stand out, you should avoid using colors that will clash with the dominant theme in the neighborhood. Walk around, and take note of the field colors, accent features and trim hues on nearby properties. While you don’t have to use a similar palette, it’s best to stay in the same color family.

Unlike a typical exterior painting contractor, Mid South Coatings can boost your home’s value in more ways than just coating it with the right color. We use the revolutionary TEX-COTE® COOLWALL® coating system that lasts forever and reduces your energy costs by almost 22%. Its permeability allows excessive indoor moisture to pass through, preventing structural wall damage over time. If you decide to put your home on the market later on, its transferable lifetime warranty gives you better leverage at resale.
