How to Pick the Right Gutter Color for your Home

September 26th, 2017 | No Comments »

How to Pick the Right Gutter Color for your HomeGutter color is usually an afterthought for many homeowners when they’re deciding on what kind of repairs or remodels they want to make. The truth is that gutter color matters! A carefully-selected gutter color can accentuate certain features on your home’s exterior and veil the ones you aren’t particularly fond of.

Decide on what to accentuate.

Most design experts recommend matching the color of your gutters to the roof or the trim of your house. If the trim of your house is wide, it’s suggested that you match the color to the trim. If the trim is skinny, match your gutter color to the roof.

If you’re looking to accentuate your home’s base, try picking a color that’s similar in color to your front door. This creates clean lines and highlights the front of your home, including the landscaping.

Choose a workable color palette.

Red-colored gutters typically work with brick exteriors and red-tiled roofing. For a more earthy tone, brown and beige colors work extremely well. These neutral tones match any roof, and are often paired with rustic architecture.   

Light gray gutters complement homes fashioned in the style of Cape Cod architecture. These American cottage styles look sleek with gray, and choosing this gutter color may provide a small but modern update to your classic-looking home.

Look beyond basic white.

Most people choose white or off-white gutters because it’s the standard factory color choice and to be honest, most people don’t know they have an option in gutter color! They may think they have to match their trim to their gutter system, but you can do the opposite.
