Exterior Paint Colors for Your Home in 2019

Greige, a mix of gray and beige, has been a popular color for a few years and it’s not going anywhere in 2019. Part of its lasting popularity is the fact that it’s a perfect neutral color so it looks great alongside accents like brick, stone, or wood. Since greige comes in cool and warm shades, you can pair it with nearly any accent color and it’ll look beautiful.

Another classic exterior paint color that will continue to be big in 2019. Many credit the farmhouse trend for keeping white and off-white popular, and that may be the case, but a lot of homeowners love how versatile an off-white home is. Off-white matches basically any trim or accent color, giving you a lot of freedom in decorating the exterior of your home.

This is a classic color for home exteriors, and for good reason: it looks great with a wide variety of trim colors or textures. Whether you choose light gray, like the swatch below, or a dramatic darker gray, you really can’t go wrong!

Light Blue

While not a neutral, light blue is a popular exterior paint color right now! It looks very fresh, tranquil, and cheerful. Light blue pairs well with accents like stone, wood, and brick, and looks great with other shades of blue, turquoise, peach, and white.

Exterior Paint Colors To Avoid in 2019

If you want your home to look fresh, steer clear of these colors. They’ll instantly make your home look dated.


This dark shade is dramatic, moody, and was extremely trendy 4-5 years ago. It’s ok as an accent color but painting your entire home charcoal in 2019 isn’t advised. In addition, dark colors absorb 70%-90% of the sun’s energy, which can make your home hotter. Don’t make your AC work harder in these hot Raleigh summers!

Dark Brown

This is another color that was very trendy a few years ago but makes your home look outdated now. Like charcoal, it can work as an accent color but it isn’t on-trend for 2019.
