Every year, the American public wants to know about trends. With the advent of social media, we know some trends are here today and gone tomorrow. But when it comes to paint trends, we know it’s not just about what’s hot now, but what will get you through the next number of years. The name of the game is quality, and doing it right the first time—in other words, “measure twice, cut once” applies to exterior paint just as much as it does construction. In the following post, we’re going to examine five of what we consider to be premium exterior paint colors for your home. Again, the colors we suggest are a blend of relative popularity in 2021, that also possess a timelessness that will look just as good in the years to come.
But first, we want to take a moment and reflect on the holiday we just celebrated as a nation: Memorial Day. We think it’s even somewhat symbolic you’re reading this after Memorial Day 2021 because we don’t think honoring those who have sacrificed for our country should be limited to one calendar day.
Why take time to honor fallen Veterans on our blog? For starters, we believe it’s the right thing to do as an American-owned and operated business. Secondly, our CEO, Eric Regan, is a veteran himself—having served as a Marine. We’re grateful for Eric’s service and those he served alongside. For those Eric served with—some who died in service and others who lived—we know it’s important to remember those who have fought for our freedom we have every day as Americans.
If you or someone you know has served our country at some point, we thank you. If you have friends or family who have served, we are grateful for their service. And if you know someone who has died while serving the United States of America, know that they did not serve in vain. Rather, they are immortalized in the bedrock of our nation—in fighting for family, and in fighting for freedom.

Top Colors in 2021
These are a few colors we know will stand the test of time while looking great in the year 2021. This is a current suite of colors that industry-leaders recommend, and we give a full stamp of approval. The key here is “imagination” and taking a long look at your exterior’s home. If you think an update is in store, consider any of the following colors and if any would look great on your home this year. We’d love to help you complete the process.
Alabaster (Sherwin Williams)
This is a versatile exterior paint color that works well on any interior as well. As for the exterior, we think the light hues compliment any landscape while providing appropriate contrast for any bolder trim or door color selection. In other words, if you are considering a secondary color to help your home pop, Alabaster is a perfect choice to coat your home in a beautiful neutral color.
Extra White (Sherwin Williams)
No dark and spooky mansions here. Sticking with the neutral colors, we give you Extra White—an exterior paint color that is as it sounds: bright and spectacular. White is a great exterior paint color for a reason, and you can do so much around your home because of it. IF you are on the fence about any two colors, don’t forget about this tried-and-true option as an alternative. Believe us . . . no one would blame you.
Wrought Iron (Benjamin Moore)
Sticking with neutral colors, we will swing the pendulum to the dark side, but with a beautiful gray option for your home in 2021. Wrought Iron is a darker gray with striking undertones suited for any home going for a modern-yet-sleek look this year. It’s not a color for those who play it safe with paint, but when utilized the right way, your home will stick out from the rest.
Nugget (Sherwin Williams)
Now let’s get colorful. With this selection, you’re sure to strike gold. Nugget is a variation on “mustard yellow” that works well especially for modern homes but also with older homes that need a facelift. This color is bold, but we believe life is too short to play it safe. Have some fun and imagine your gold nugget of a home today.
Hale Navy (Benjamin Moore)
We know this color appears close to a gray, but once applied the navy blue hue really displays wonderfully in natural light. Therefore, if you’re looking for a stunning color to paint your home in 2021, we say “hail to ole big blue” with this wonderful Benjamin Moore selection.
