Exterior Paint Color Combinations Images – Sometimes people see such a beautiful color that they want to take home with them. A camera on hand or a cell phone that takes pictures makes obtaining a color registration an easy process, but then you must find a way to match the colors of the photograph with the available paint in order to recreate the perfect color scheme on the outside of your home. Matching exterior paint to a photo requires a little time and patience, but the reward is worth it.
Use a photo of a house with the color scheme you want to duplicate. Visit a home improvement or paint store that offers matching computerized paint and show them the color (s) to match. Collect additional samples of colors that are close to the initially selected colors, both darker and lighter. Place the paint samples side by side to ensure that the colors mix well once painted on the outside of the house.
Tape of the paint samples or a painting of a small section of the exterior of the house to see how the colors are seen in the sunlight. Natural lighting always produces a different effect than the artificial light of the store. Some paint manufacturers sell small containers of pint-sized samples, making it easier and less expensive to test the color in your home. Make your final purchase of the painting with confidence in your color scheme of the paint samples you have selected.
