Early spring is usually the time to start thinking about a new exterior paint colour for your home. This might be the best time for you to update some details and keep up with the trend. After all, you do not want to be the shabby-looking house in the neighbourhood. Moreover, everything is getting back to normal and inviting friends and relatives over can be the best way to catch up with what happened in the past year. However, you would not want to have some friends invited only to see the faded exterior wall painting your house has.

It is best to dial your professional exterior painting contractor and get the work done. Magazines and paint colour enthusiasts have released the definitive list of exterior home painting colours that will be in-trend for the whole year.

Ten 2022 Exterior Colours of the Year

  1. Sherwin William’s Alabaster

We kick off this list with Sherwin William’s Alabaster. Alabaster is one of last year’s best interior colours as released by William. However, this colour is timeless and transcendent. Warm off-whites are so in-trend for 2022. Mixed with beige or yellow undertones, it brightens up homes. It is a perfect exterior neutral colour. This also elevates the home exterior to modernity it works well with existing brick or metal design features.

  1. Benjamin Moore’s Aegean Olive

Benjamin Moore kicked off his 2022 Exterior Colours of the year with the Aegean Olive hue. The earth tones and nature-inspired accent offer a warm, deep brown-green chic look. It works well as a base colour or as monochromatic exterior wall paint.

  1. Benjamin Moore’s Dove White

Another one on this list is from the works of Benjamin Moore. His dove white hue is very popular and has hints of gray that keep things cool and chic. This paint colour works best when surrounded by tall greeneries and dark-toned exterior architectural details.

  1. Benjamin Moore’s Sussex Green

Transitioning to the lighter side of the green palette, Sussex Green is a fresh and warm accent that complements best with copper highlights.

  1. BEHR’s Polar Bear

BEHR’s Polar Bear 75 is one of the 2022 Exterior Paint Colour of the Year. Polar Bear 75 offers a cool white tone that brings classic vibes to your home. Its pinkish undertone works best with natural wood tones or brown trims.

  1. Sherwin William’s Pewter Cast

This hue works best with stucco painting, lap cladding, and cedar stones. With houses with exposed stone or brick details or black roofs, the Pewter Cast from Sherwin William offers adaptability with its cool-muted tone of gray.

  1. Benjamin Moore’s Midsummer Night

Brick and Batten listed Moore’s Midsummer Night as one of the best exterior paint colours for this year. This hue has a dark and dramatic complex neutral. Midsummer has an accent somewhere between black and brown. Its rich colour is best for vacation houses and lake houses – better yet, to bring a relaxing vacation vibe in the comfort of your own home.

  1. Sherwin William’s Naval

Naval is one Sherwin William exterior paint colour for 2022. This hue can work as a full front door colour or an exquisite siding accent. Naval is a versatile neutral colour that can work perfectly with rosy pink or stony grey shade.

  1. Benjamin Moore’s Anonymous

Speaking of the brown-green-gray combination, Anonymous is a complex and sophisticated mid-to-dark-toned neutral paint colour. However, this accent works best when in harmony with the greeneries in the surrounding.

  1. Benjamin Moore’s Caviar

Closing our list is another Benjamin Moore hue. Caviar is a near-black hue that is more common than normal. This colour brings drama and depth that many clients desire.

We hired Earl and his crew to paint the baseboards & walls of our basement. He is very good at answering emails and texts. Also is punctual when meeting for quotes and doing the work. I specifically wanted our baseboards lacquered and NOT brush or roller painted. It cost more, but the results speak for themselves. The basement was left clean and the furniture well covered. Great work from this company. Would recommend

Recently Earl painted the exterior of our house. The structure was very challenging and needed an enormous amount of prep work. Earl and his crew showed up every day on time and went full tilt for 4 days to get all the prep and painting done. The paint was all brushed and rolled.They were very professional and it was obvious that they take pride in their work.I did have trouble deciding on the colours and after a couple of stressful months, I followed up with a colour consultant that Earl recommended. It was money well spent and we are very pleased with how it turned out.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl and his crew.
Earl and his team helped me dramatically improve the interior of a recently purchased 1960 Bungalow. They prepped and painted the main level completely (ceiling, walls, windows, door jams, etc.) and did some painting in basement as well. Easy to work with from the start to finish. Great job, on time, and at a reasonable price. I highly recommend Earl’s Paintworks. I will most likely be using their services again soon!

Earl is the best in the business! We hired Earl to paint the exterior of our 106 year-old heritage home that was in disrepair. Our house is a craftsman bungalow that required highly detailed workmanship. Because of the uniqueness of the house, and its heritage value, we were nervous to hire the job out to just anyone. We met with a number of companies and Earl's Paintworks stood tall above the rest. We loved that Earl was an owner/operator and knew after talking to him that he'd take great care with our beloved home. We weren't wrong! Earl and Jeremy were meticulous - sanding every nook and cranny to ensure a perfect finish that would stand the test of time. We wanted a tri-colour scheme to show off the home's craftsmanship, which required a lot of taping, cutting, and intricate work. Our neighbours would stop by to compliment Earl and Jeremy - blown away by the precision and quality of their work. Both my fiancé and I were sad to see them leave. Earl and Jeremy had become fast friends, always making time to stop and visit with us (despite putting in long days of hard labour). Couldn't recommend them enough! If you are looking for a painter, do yourself a favour, and stop here.

We recently hired Earl's Paintworks to repaint the entire interior of a newly-purchased home and could not be more pleased with the quality of the work and exceptional service provided from start to finish. We were on a very tight timeline & Earl (the owner) and Jeremy showed up ready to work 30 minutes after we took possession of the house. They put in long hours to finish the job in only 8.5 days, despite the fact that it was a massive project (3 storey house with over 30 windows/doors to paint around and some 20ft ceilings). The care they took to cover our hardwood floors, carpeting and cabinetry was remarkable - not a drop of paint left anywhere it didn't belong.Earl was truly a pleasure to work with, responded to our questions in a timely & friendly fashion, and provided knowledgeable (and realistic) advice on different finishes and colour options. He even went above and beyond to point out some small repairs that needed to be addressed around the house which was helpful to us as new owners. We had 4 different companies quote on the job and chose Earl's Paintworks based on a gut feeling that Earl was the right choice. Very happy with our decision - so much so that we're hoping to have them back this summer to do the exterior of our house as well.We would recommend Earl's Paintworks to anyone without hesitation. If you're looking for a hardworking, locally-owned company to do an efficient, professional, super high quality job, this is it!

We wanted the interior and doors repainted in our home in preparation for selling. We obtained a couple of quotes from painters. We ended up choosing Earl due to our positive interactions with him.This is a small but very professional company. It was good to work with a smaller company where the person painting your home is the actual owner and therefore, someone who took full responsibility for the work. Earl was very helpful with colour suggestions. He was easy to communicate with via both emails, phone calls and text. Earl was a perfectionist. He finished our 2 level 2000 sq ft home in about 6 full days. He came a few weeks later to do the exterior doors (garage and entry) when the weather was warmer.I would not hesitate to recommend Earl's Paintworks.
