Home Reno Inspiration: 4 ways to make your exterior pop with colour
Posted on November 7 2019
Do you ever scroll through Pinterest or walk through your neighbourhood and spot a house that really grabs your attention? Sometimes, it’s a simple pop of colour that does the trick.
Adding the right colour to your exterior can make your house stand out, but choosing your final colour selections can be stressful and time consuming. In fact, the average homeowner delays painting their exterior by two years because deciding on a colour scheme seems so daunting!
To get you started in the right direction, we’ve put together some home renovation inspiration. The following four home renovation ideas will show you how to take your exterior to the next level with paint. Once you’ve decided on your design goals, you can use your Nix Mini and our user-friendly Nix Paints app to walk you through the project, helping you finish your paint project with confidence and ease.
Home Reno Idea #1:
Make your front door the center of attention
Adding colour to just one key piece of your exterior can change the whole look of your house. Colors can be bold and exciting, warm and inviting or even cool and dramatic.

Home Reno Idea #2:
Showcase your windows by going bold with your frames and shutters
Contrast the colour of your window frame with your exterior paint colour. A black-and-white combination can be a classic look, but depending on the colour of your exterior, you may want to explore more adventurous tones or earthy palettes.
TIP: To explore new palettes, use a Nix Mini and the Nix Paints app to capture colour inspiration from around your home or garden. Find a colour that you love, then scan it to find its matching paint name and code, plus complementary palettes.
Home Reno Idea #3
Add arts and crafts flair to your home by choosing harmonizing colours for your exterior and trim
The arts and crafts style of home is synonymous with traditional “comfort colours”. Pick a trim colour that can complement your exterior colours, all while adding a bit of flavor to the design.
TIP: When exploring colours with the Nix Paints app, use the “Color Schemes” button to browse through complementary, analogous, and triadic palettes to find colours that are scientifically proven to work well together.

Home Reno Idea #4
Add classic or modern sophistication with a full exterior paint job
Giving your exterior a face lift with paint can completely transform the look and style of your house. With strong contrasting trim and exteriors, like a deep navy or grey with white trim, you can create a modern look to the outside of your home. Alternatively, you can choose colours that are more traditional and subtle in their pairings by choosing shades from the same family.
TIP: Use the Nix Paints app to explore paint palettes, including complementary ones, to help you determine your final colours. Then save your project and share it with your friends through email or social media to get their input!
