Choosing a paint color for your home

Choosing the exterior paint color for your home can be a difficult decision. After all, you want your paint to last, and what if the color doesn’t look quite right once it’s actually on the home? To help you with this tough decision, Crash of Rhinos offers professional paint advising services.

Starting with the HOA

If you live in a neighborhood with a Homeowner’s Association (HOA), you know that the rules that you and your neighbors follow are intended to keep the neighborhood looking great and home values high. If someone was to paint their house a garish hot pink, that could deter future buyers (and serve as an eyesore for those currently living in the community!) For this reason, many HOAs control what colors people in the neighborhood can paint their homes. Here is where things get a bit tricky: if your neighborhood allows a limited variety of colors, you’ll need to know what your choices are. The process of getting your home color approved through the association can be arduous.

The great news is that the professional paint advisor will work with your HOA on your behalf to figure out what the acceptable colors are, and how to best proceed. For homeowners living in neighborhoods with HOAs, this step alone removes much of the hassle associated with home painting.

Digital rendering

Once your advisor has received a list of acceptable color palettes from your HOA, we’ll sit down with you to pick an exterior paint color. This is where the fun starts: we’ll use an actual photograph of your home to create a digital rendering of what the paint color will look like applied to your property. You’ll get to compare different colors in different lighting contexts.

Because you can’t—and probably shouldn’t—make your decision from just looking at a computer screen, we’ll also show you how the paint looks on the outside of your home before you decide.

Let’s communicate

Your paint advisor is there for you to help you find the best color for your home. If you have questions at any point, they’re there to help you and guide you through the process. Their goal is to find an exterior paint color that you’ll love, while helping you to avoid HOA fines and the need for an expensive re-paint.

After you’ve selected a paint color

Congratulations! You’ve picked a paint color. Your paint advisor will take care of all the paperwork you need to finalize your color choice with your HOA, and then you’re ready to get the paint job off-and-running.
