Facade Render Colours - Guide to Choosing the Right Facade

How do you choose the perfect facade colour?

Start by selecting the main colour of your façade, and then look for supplementary colours. You can find inspiration everywhere. The colour we choose can be influenced by our surroundings, but also selected to complement the buildings roof, colours, windows and guttering. 

Top Tips: 

  • Look for colours that are naturally occurring in the location of your building.
  • Avoid too glittering and lively shades. If they are not suited to the style and function of the building, their appearance on the façade would become confusing.
  • Bear in mind colours on a large exterior surface usually look lighter than on a small surface. This is caused by many factors, such as light, size or surface.
  • Use a maximum combination of three colours with differing levels of lightness to compliment one and other. 

You can choose supplementary colours from the same range of Baumit Life colours. Shades from the same range will always look very stylish and harmonious together. If you are more adverturous and want to liven the façade up, use dark and deep shades on smaller areas and details.
