Go For Timeless White Hues
White exterior hues make a building look larger, that’s why grand estates are often painted white. Similarly, you can add to your home’s sense of size and dignity by using white or neutral colours. They add a beautiful look to any exterior, allowing bold colours as accents if desired. White hues work wonders in lending a neat look to any given space. It also gives a luxurious, classy look to your house, and brings in the sense of harmony and peace. However, the power of white also lies in its cost-effectiveness, since it absorbs less heat and keeps your house cool naturally.
The best paint for exterior walls is the White Sphere (8P2679) from the Berger Paints Color Catalogue. It is a sophisticated and neat-looking light neutral shade and you can use it to give your home a spruced-up look. To achieve the best finish, use their Seal-O-Prime. This undercoat primer paint increases the longevity of the wall colour by providing protection against dampness and efflorescence.
Let Your Imagination Run Wild

Raise the royal air of your home’s exteriors by painting walls a charcoal grey and changing all fixtures as well as the front door to an exquisite magenta.
