Let’s face it. When deciding for a color for your home exterior, not once will black ever cross your mind, right? You might consider using it as an accent or trim, but to use it for the whole house? Never. The black hue is still much less common than white or other soft, neutral tones on the exteriors of homes.
However, with the advent of Instagram, Houzz, and Pinterest, black houses are being given the spotlight (and consideration) it deserves. Seeing all these black houses has given people the confidence to try it themselves. Visual inspiration is the key and through exposure to so many pictures and inspiration on the web, people can now explore more nontraditional or daring options when choosing color for their exterior.
And this assumption comes with a statistic. Pinterest reports that saves for black houses have grown 774 percent since spring 2014, spiking in March 2019 possibly because of a New York Times story that appeared on March 7). Tricorn Black, a deep, saturated ebony that is one of the company’s most popular blacks, is the 12th most popular paint sold by Sherwin-Williams in the U.S., up from the 33rd spot in 2017. In Canada, Tricorn Black is the sixth most popular color so far this year, while no black colors even made the country’s top 50 list in 2017.
There you have it – so now would you consider giving black house exteriors a try? We have curated a gallery of ten gorgeous homes, made of wood siding, for the brave and the bold.
Be inspired and be bold.
