When it comes to choosing the color palette for our home's exterior, most homeowners go for tried-and-tested combinations. While neutrals and non-colors are no-fail classics, there's something to be said about loud and out-of-the-box shades, too—after all, nothing can spruce up the home better than an unexpected coat of paint, right? 

If you're looking to give your home a major makeover, here are some ideas you can try:

For those who are feeling brave and bold, black is the only way to go. You can't lose with this midnight hue—it can make your neighbors' heads turn, it doesn't require regular cleaning and you wouldn't have to touch up that often. 

RL Tip: Experiment with different finishes to keep the look from falling flat. Try a glossier black for doors and window frames while matte is still the best option for walls.

If you aren't ready to dive into the dark side yet, moss green makes a great alternative. It is dark and off-neutral, but it can still easily blend in with other colors. It's the perfect choice if you have a lot of plants around that can easily frame your home, too. 

Looking for something a little more cool-toned? Try navy blue. It's daring and unexpected, but it's still a safe choice if you enjoy changing up the style of your home often. Balance out the look with a clean, white trim. 

If you've got no plans to drench your home in a one-of-a-kind shade, a subtle pop of color on the front door does the trick, too. Pick colors with dramatic contrasts like gray and orange (as seen in photo) to make the look stand out. 

It must be summer all-year round in this home! Moody shades aren't the only ones that can make a statement—you can trust bright colors, too. If you're able to keep up with the maintenance, feel free to go with punches of neon, pastels, or any white-based tints.
