Having your home repainted is an awesome way to give it new life. Before having your home repainted, there are a few important things to consider such as the following. 

The Foliage

When deciding whether to repaint your house the same color that it already is or choose another color altogether, consider the foliage that can be found throughout your property. If most everything is green, you can choose pretty much any house color to complement your landscape design—except green unless you want to camouflage your home. But if you're growing fruits, vegetables, and a variety of flowers on your property, you should really consider what colors are already being featured on the property to ensure that your home doesn't end up clashing with them or overpowering them.

The Property Line

You should also think about whether your property boundaries will have an impact on your property's curb appeal once your home is repainted. If you have a fence installed that conceals most of your home, you don't have to worry much about how the color of your repainted home will affect your curb appeal.

But if there are no bushes, trees, or fences along your property line, your home will likely be in full view of passersby so the color, texture, and design you choose is sure to make an impact on your overall curb appeal. Take a look at neighboring homes and check out homes that have recently sold in your area to get an idea of what colors you can use to improve the overall curb appeal of your property.

Outside Family Time

The color that you decide to use when repainting your home can have an impact on your family's mood while spending time outside. For example, a red home in an urban neighborhood can be exciting and reminiscent of a barn on a small farm. And a red home can help raise your family's energy levels while playing together outside, but it can raise blood pressure levels and heart rates, which might keep your kids up too late at night.

Blue, on the other hand, tends to lower blood pressure levels and create a serene atmosphere that invokes relaxation. So, take the time to learn how prospective home colors will affect your family's moods while spending time out in the yard day or night.
