Consider Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Almost every part of your home’s exterior provides more than a functional role. Gutters are no exception. They way your gutters look can affect your home’s curb appeal. Choosing the right color for your gutters is as important as choosing the right materials and installation.

Choose a Low-Key Color

The most important rule for choosing gutters that will look good, not just function well, is to choose a low-key color. You don’t want to introduce an entirely new color to your home’s exterior color scheme. You will want to choose one of three options for choosing a gutter color:

  1. Match your siding
  2. Match your trim
  3. Match your roof

 

So Which is the Right Color?

Matching gutter color to siding color is usually the safest choice. When gutters match siding, they have the greatest chance of going unnoticed.

If you cannot find a color that matches your siding, go with one that matches your trim instead.

If your home exterior is brick or stone, ask yourself what color your would paint your garage and use that color for your gutters.

The final option is to match your gutters as closely to your roof color. This makes the gutters look like a natural part of the roofline rather than a border for it.
