House Painting Color Options for Brick Houses
It is true that the natural look of brick offers much in the department of visual aesthetics, as long as it has been maintained. However, that shouldn't mean that you, as a Sarasota homeowner should be stuck with just the one possible look for the entire time you own your home.
That means knowing which colors would work best for house painting, when your house happens to be brick. If you are considering exterior painting for your brick exterior, here is what you should know:
- Painting your brick white sounds basic but is anything but boring. The finished look is clean, sleek, modern and sophisticated. You can help keep things from feeling too cool by warming it up with some brighter accent colors. Or, if you want to go modern, use blacks and greys. White is also a good choice for brick interior walls and fireplaces.
- You can soften the look or make it more subtle by choosing a warmer white. For anyone that feels true white is too cold or sterile, cream or off-white can help create a different atmosphere. Your painter can also show you options for techniques like whitewashing that will still allow some of the brick to show through, for a classic weathered, aged and distressed look.
- Red is the perfect primary shade to pick, especially if on the brighter end of the spectrum. It still holds some of the color authenticity of brick, but makes the look more unified and cohesive.
- Grey or greige (grey and beige combined) are ideal options for anyone that feels white is just a bit too bright. Light hues are the perfect alternative to white and darker grey feels traditional. Either one allows for great accent color choices.
