Exterior Paint Schemes For Historical Houses


Owners of historical homes know that choosing paint colors is a nerve-wracking and critically important decision. Ready-mix paints have been available since the middle part of the nineteenth century and from that time home owners have had to choose their colors without really knowing how their finished home will look. After all, a two inch paint chip looks very different from a 3,000 square foot house!

In a visit to New England in the 1840s, famed novelist Charles Dickens commented, "All the buildings looked as if they had been painted that morning ... Every house is the whitest of white; every shutter is the greenest of green."

If you have an older home and want to choose colors other than green and white, here are some guidelines"

1. Light colors "advance" a home while dark colors cause it to "recede". This means that lighter shades will make your home appear larger and closer to the street, while darker shades make your home seem smaller and further away. If you want your house to blend in and be less noticeable, therefore, a darker hue is best.

2. Light dramatically affects how colors appear to the human eye. In cooler climates the light is diffused and bold colors are intensified. In southern climates, the harsher, brighter sunlight will cause pale tints to appear washed out.

3. If you want your gutters and downspouts to be less noticeable, paint them the same color as the house.

4. Make sure any mildew problems are solved before painting. Test suspicious spots with household bleach and if they change color, you definitely have a mildew problem.

5. Moisture problems must be eliminated before painting. If they are not, water will ruin even the best paint job.

6. Some paint manufacturers offer color 'families' to simplify choosing. That is, there are several colors that go well together and eliminate the agony of figuring out the exact right shade for the trim so that it will relate well to the primary exterior color.

7. It's always possible to get expert help. This is especially desirable if you own a historical landmark and wish for it to be restored to its former appearance. Historical paint consultants are familiar with shades available at the time the home was built and can often do research to determine original colors. These folks understand chemical changes in paint and can usually figure out what the original colors looked like before they faded to today's milder colors.

8. There is software available that allows home owners to scan in a picture of their home and then try out different colors without making an actual commitment. It's powerful to see your home in Colonial Barn Red or Patriot Federal Blue before actually putting a drop of color on the outside.

9. You might consider staining your historical property, rather than painting it. Stain is cheaper and it won't peel off or crack the way paint does. This is because it actually sinks into the wood, rather than coating it so it will instead weather and dim over time. Stain won't cover up any imperfections in the wood the way paint does, however.

Owning and living in a historically significant home is a privilege and maintaining that house is a responsibility to take seriously. Therefore, avoid hasty color choices and take the time to choose wisely.

    I received 4 of these darling Bistro Chairs on Tuesday and when I saw them I ran right upstairs and ordered 2 more chairs. They arrive today. Wow in only 2 days and free shipping on top of that. These chairs are perfect for the dining room of our beach house. When I first ordered the chairs a few weeks ago I wanted blue but after searching the entire web there were no blue ones available so I went with the red and I am so happy I did, fun color makes for a fun look. Pros: Fun, light weight, nice size for a small area, comfortable and very french looking.

    Easy to order and arrived quickly. The overall quality is good, although when putting it together, some of the predrilled holes in the from section of the seat, requiring unnecessary adjustment to make it fit. Otherwise very happy with the bench.

    I am over the moon with our porch light. Good quality and quite heavy, not flimsy. Excellent value for money and superb delivery and service. I would highly recommend.

    Exactly what I wanted. I just painted this room a dark color and had an empty space on the wall. I wanted to put something's with texture or three dimensional and something light colored to offset the dark background. I also wanted something a bit more organic soI put fake little plants inside. They look great!

    A little disappointed with this. Whilst its perfectly ok I feel that it doesn't make the "statement" that I'd expected and is a little cheap looking

    Easy to assemble....ideally you will need help with attaching the lid. Looks good and great size. Would definitely recommend this item . Delivered on time and kept informed whilst in transit.

    Very cute. Not the sturdiest, but Ok for the price (was on sale). Splintered in parts when putting together and some holes did not line up well. Pretty easy to put together with 2 people. Going to finish the wood with oil so we’ll see if it survives the test of time...

    Looks good, but the metal hooks you attach to the plant basket that will hold it on the balcony kept springing off when assembling, so not sure how it will hold on my balcony and stay with a plant inside. Hoping with the weight of the plant it stays snugly fit to my balcony. Will see.

    I had looked for months for a bench to put on our front porch. I knew the look I wanted and finally found it in this bench. It is comfortable and the table in the middle is very handy. It was more expensive than I wanted, but the quality is very nice. I love the color! My husband put it together in no time once he read the directions (lol). I think there were all of eight screws and everything lined up perfectly. We put sliders on the legs to elevate it a bit as a precaution since it is on a covered porch which does get water on it. Pros: Beautiful finish, easy to assenble, feels nice and sturdy but comfortable. Cons: None

    These are very quality and seem durable, I just received them so I cant comment on the ware and tear. I also liked the fact that you did not have to assemble them. They look great on my patio.

    I love these chairs. They are comfortable and very practical for my lifestyle. We have a pool so I needed something that couldn’t hold up to wet bathing suits and spills. You can wipe these chairs off with a wet rag and you’re good to go.
