19 Jun Choosing/matching the right color of gutters for your home
When it comes to gutters, many people think they’re just a part of your home and they don’t require a lot of consideration or effort when choosing the right ones. This is false. Gutters, if picked correctly, can make all the difference to your home, such a small change and decision can make all the difference to your property and can add a lot of value to it. When it comes to gutters, there is a lot to consider, the main and most important things that need to be thought about carefully are:
Are they visible?
Many gutter are visible, however, there are some that can’t be seen because they are on the underside of the roof or are blocked by fixtures. If this is the case, you may not necessarily care about the color or shape of the gutters, but rather what they’re made of or how strong and practical they are for your home. You may still want to get gutters in a color that compliment your house. The best thing to do would be to see which parts of your gutter is visible and then make decisions.
The best way to pick a flattering color for your gutters is to match them to your roof or contrast with the color of your roof. For example, if you had a slate roof, white or blue gutters would look nice against it.
Matching your gutters to your roof doesn’t bring attention to them or make them stand out, instead, it makes them look like they’re an extension to your roof. This can look very nice on big homes as it can proportion out the roof and house. Your roof is the easiest way of deciding on a suitable color for your gutters.
Exterior Wall Color:
In the same way that matching your gutters to your roof would be flattering to your home, matching them to the exterior walls of your house can be as attractive. This allows them to blend in and look natural with the property and can be a good option for homes such as old, brick ones or classic buildings. Saying this, your gutters colors shouldn’t clash with the color of your home’s exterior walls as it can make them look out of place and ruin the look of your home.
Another good way of finding the right color gutters to buy is by looking at the color of your homes window frames and trim such as the door frame and porch and matching it with them. Taking into consideration your home type, shape and image, matching the gutters with the trim of your home could look very nice and all the element would complement each other and form the ‘border’ of your home. Visually, this could look very impressive and give your home a polished look.
