Need help with exterior.
We will be redoing the whole exterior from roof to siding to windows. I feel the windows to be a little high. I like how the front porch is different from the rest.
The Color People
Your house in the front has a dark third and two light thirds. You want to paint the siding a darker color to eliminate this. A darker body color will also make the windows stand out and be a feature. If you replace them find a cream or use the common white but soften this harsh white with an off white trim.
A darker body color will also keep the deck in the back from looking so stuck on and allow it to feel like a special part of the house, which it is. Also paint the concrete foundation on the back in the body color. Select a dark roof color it wil make the house feel less like it it is rising out of the ground. This is an easy turn around. Some nice paint will easily make the house look 100% better.

I hadn't thought about dark. All the lap siding samples I have are light. I will need to get darker ones. Thank you!
