When choosing an exterior color scheme for your home, you should consider the material and colors of all parts that are not painted. The roof is actually one of the most important factors because it’s hard to hide!
Gray is a popular color choice for roofs because of its versatility and ability to work with many different styles. Whether you prefer dark charcoal shingles or lighter slate tiles, gray provides the perfect base for bold pops of color!
WHAT PAINT COLORS WORK BEST WITH A GRAY ROOF?
All white is an attractive color choice for homes. It’s a classic look that goes well with traditional styles (such as gray roofs). If you want to try something different, the other light neutral of cream or soft beige paired up with crisp white trim can also work nicely!
When looking for a color inspiration, consider the natural colors of bricks. These include reds from bright to burgundy and rich shades of orange as well as elements that are buff in nature.
If you have a greenish undertone to your roof, play it up by painting the exterior of your home in this shade. A lighter green like sage or light olive works well with any darker gray tone. For an even subtler look, try pairing solid grey roofs with greener tones such as emerald greens and jade grays that aren’t too bright or dark.
Color pairing can make or break a house. To achieve the traditional look, pair up light yellow with gray roof on an edgy house for more of less boring color scheme that pairs well with all types of houses; try mustard as door accent to give it some definition.
If you have a grey roof, try to use monochromatic colors. These are many different shades of the same color – for example gray paint that is either darker or lighter than your shingles. If they’re too similar it will look washed out and heavy if not defined well enough between them both!
If you’re going with a monochromatic look, consider what color your roof is. That will influence the paint shade that looks best against it – for example, warm taupe gray if your shingles have brown undertones.
COLORS TO AVOID IF YOU HAVE A GRAY ROOF
If you have a gray roof, choose colors that will contrast. For example: muted brown and beige can make your home look washed out when paired with gray so it’s best to go for something more vibrant like red or orange which would stand out against the grey coloring of your house.
