Are you remodeling the exterior of your home? If you’re looking for a way to spruce up that curb appeal, one important feature to consider is your gutters. When it comes to picking out your gutter colors, there are many paths you can take. And all will elevate the look of your home!
K-Guard provides you with 27 options to choose from! We’re proud to offer a variety of color options: warms, cools, neutrals and a few unexpected colors too. With 27 possible choices, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our guide to choosing the best K-Guard gutter color for your home.
You never know where you’ll find inspiration! One of the best places you can look is right in your own neighborhood. Take out the family or the pet for a Sunday drive, and while you’re exploring, take pictures of homes that have gutter colors that you love. Looking in your own neighborhood is also an ideal tactic because you’ll find architectural styles that mirror those of your home. Use your neighbors’ homes for color inspiration!
Beyond your own backyard, tune into your favorite home remodeling reality TV shows. Especially during that big final reveal, keep your eyes peeled for the gutter colors that you like. You may also want to take a peek online, visiting sites like Pinterest to see color combinations.
No matter where you’re finding inspiration, keep track of the color patterns you’re seeing. Some homeowners love to mirror their exterior color with that of their home — think gray shingles paired with gray gutters, for a streamlined look. Others prefer to utilize their K-Guard gutters as an accent — a red brick home with a copper penny accent, for example.
Consider Resale Value
If you’re not planning on staying in your home forever, you may want to research the latest home exterior design trends in your area. Balance the trends with the classics to appeal to a wide range of buyers. It may also prove beneficial to research recent home sales in your area and take note of their gutter choices.
Use your own home as a starting point. What color is your roof? What about your house trim? Two common ways you can choose your gutter color is to match it to either one of these. When you’re trying to decide the best choice, consider your trim size. If your trim size is rather thin, consider matching your gutter to your roof instead. However, if your trim stands out and makes a statement, consider matching your gutter to your trim!
Then, consider your architectural style. Colonial, Tudor or Victorian homes call for a different color gutter than a Mid-Century Modern, Cape Cod or Bungalow — and a Minimal Traditional, Ranch Style, Raised Ranch, Split Level or Builder’s Colonial needs something different too. Know your home’s architectural style and peruse home design sites for visual ideas.
Warms or Cools
If you’ve ever tried to paint a room “white,” you know very well how just one color can have dozens of different options! Gutter colors are the same way. As you’ll note on K-Guard’s gutter colors chart, we have multiple shades of grey and shades of white. A great place to start is to decide if you prefer warm tones or cool tones. When you think of a perfect setting, is it with blues, greys and blacks (cools) or do browns, yellows and beiges (warms) sound better to you? Start there to pick one of our 27 colors that match your style.
If you want to make a statement, your gutter color is a great way to do it! We have a few colors that will certainly make a statement if paired with your home’s exterior in a tasteful way. If you’re wanting to change things up in a fun way, consider adding a pop of color with your gutter system. If you have a colorful front door, you can pair your gutters to your door colors, or even paint your front door after you pick your statement gutter color!
More than Just White
While K-Guard offers a few shades of white, the majority of our selection expands past that standard choice! Step outside the comfort zone of sticking with plain white, and consider a color that will better compliment your home.
A common misconception with white gutters is that “white will match with everything.” That is not necessarily true (remember the hundreds of different shades of whites when you were painting?). With 25 other choices, we’re confident you’ll find a color you love.
And if what you love is white after all? We’ve still got you covered!
