You’d think finding the most popular house paint would be a straightforward process, but the Interwebs have trouble separating what designers think from what paint companies actually sell – the latter of which is the true marker for popularity.Even so, both values are important. Why? Because some people care about what designers (and magazine editors, and architects, and so on) think, and they might be in the market to buy a house.And, you might be in the mood to sell one. Or, maybe you don't want your house looking like everyone else's. So, let’s take a look at what paint sells, and what paint grabs the public’s attention.Best-Selling Exterior House Paint
As you may have suspected, the best-selling house paint is also the most predictable (boring?) house paint. Year after year, paint companies report selling truck tankers full of whites, neutral tans and beiges, and dark shades in gray and blue.So, these colors and shades are going to be your best bet if you want to fit in with your neighbors, and you probably don't even have to look out your window to know that's a fact.Most Popular Exterior House Paint
Again, there are no surprises here. Polls suggest
white is the “most popular” exterior house paint, and that’s not just the average buyer's opinion – that’s just what you get when you ask people what color they like for houses.Since white wins nearly half of any polled audience, one can assume that the other half of the color palette is fractured among other predictable colors, with only a sliver left over for the wild hairs that vote for something more vibrant.Best-Selling House Colors
This is a question that demands more localized research, because if you’re trying to sell your house you know that – of the all the people in the world – there’s only one that will sign on the dotted line when the deal is done.And, how are you supposed to know their favorite house color?Improve your odds by knowing your neighborhood trends. Salmon pink might work in Miami, but it’s probably not gonna fly in Omaha. You have your choice of color pros willing to give you advice
, but the easiest thing you can do is drive around and see what sticks out – or what doesn’t.Have fun picking the perfect exterior color for your house!
