Color Ideas For Your Brick Exterior in Denver Metro, CO

We have previously discussed the notion of whether or not it was a good idea to paint your brick exterior — it should be understood that if you are reading this article, you came to the conclusion at the end that it was a good idea for you.

The question you are no doubt faced with once you decide that you do want to paint your brick exterior is what color you’re going to want to choose.

The good news is that even though you can’t really go back in time as it were with painting brick — in that you cannot un-paint a brick exterior — you can always go with a different color over top the one you have if you end up not liking the way that your brick exterior looks after painting it.

With that in mind, here are some color ideas for your brick exterior in Denver Metro, CO.


White is the kind of color that would raise an eyebrow at first glance, making one wonder why a person would choose to paint the house such a simple color.

In terms of painting your brick house exterior, however, white is one of the best colors that you can choose, though of course, you are going to find yourself having to spend a bit more time cleaning it as a result of how easily you will be able to see the dust and grime on the exterior.

The good thing about white as far as exterior house color goes is that it will actively keep the interior of your home cooler.

The same can be said, the opposite in any case, if you happen to decide to paint the exterior of your home black — though some might say that it would be a good choice if you live in an area that has a lot of cooler falls and winters throughout the year.


The color aqua brings to mind the sea, which is a tranquil kind of paradise for the eyes.

People that choose to paint the brick exterior of their homes aqua do so with the hope and the expectation that they can impart some of that tranquility onto the exterior of their homes.

In terms of look, some would even say that this kind of brick paint gives what could be described as a coastal look/vibe.


If you are looking to paint your home a lighter color but you don’t want to actually go all the way white, you can paint your brick exterior a creamy color and get the benefits of having it be a lighter color without some of the downsides of having a purely white house.

The creamy kind of exterior paint job for your brick home will have a mostly neutral look to it without having any sort of yellow or banana look, which is certainly not a look you want to go for unless you do… in which case why not just go for banana yellow itself?

Dark Blue

Dark blue, as far as exterior paint jobs go, is on the spectrum of being close to being navy but isn’t quite there.

If you’re a fan of having a darker color brick exterior but you don’t want to have a black house, dark blue may be the kind of color you’re going to want to use.

It can sometimes invoke thoughts of the deep sea and going out onto the ocean and looking out into the deep expanse which may or may not be the kind of thing you want to think about when looking at the brick exterior of your home.
