Look at the house, it’s style, look at similar houses and try to find inspiration in the neighbourhood, online or in glossy magazines. You may want to return to the original colours, or maybe you want something quite different and new. The combination of colours on windows, doors and other woodwork may enhance or subdue the appearance of the colour you choose. Consider the environment: is the house embedded in greenery, what colours do the neighbours use, do you want your house to stand out or to adapt to the environment? Certain communities may have regulations concerning colours and designs. Check with your local authority if you are unsure about the regulations.
