The façade of a house is mainly for everyone else and not for the inhabitants. The house needs to look pretty for those walking by it and for the guests. So people usually choose to make their houses look bright and to paint it in cheerful colors. But, when you think about it, all colors are beautiful and they all have a lovely side, even black.
Although black is the darkest color you can find, it doesn’t always signify bad things. A black house façade will look mysterious and imposing. After all, the design is important as well. Your house doesn’t necessarily have to look creepy just because it’s painted black.
It is a nice idea for Halloween but it’s also an elegant color for the rest of the year. The surroundings are also important. A black house situated in the middle of nowhere is bound to look less inviting than one with a white exterior.
However, if the house is a highly populated area, black will only make it stand out from the rest of the buildings. In fact, certain architectural styles are more friendly with this particular color. Modern and contemporary houses look chic with black facades and this is mainly because they have huge windows. A traditional exterior that’s painted black gains a mysterious and gothic allure.
