How to correctly choose the color of the house facade?

Colors complete the architectural plans.

Colors were created by man so that he could employ them to affect his surroundings. Colours unify us, complete our architectural designs, and serve as a way for us to communicate with those around us. Today, color is a phenomenon that permeates everything and is only getting more popular. Colors have the power to entice and uplift you, yet they may also evoke negative emotions.

Numerous factors affect how we perceive color.

Letโ€™s see two of them:

Light and color

The brightness of the sun has an impact on how colors are perceived. The seasons as well as the day and night bring about variations to the eye perception.

Texture and color

The way a material is created has an impact on how color is perceived.

For example:

Smooth surfaces appear brighter because light is reflected differently by them. The rough surface, though, seems darker to us.

A plaster structure is what?

The plaster contains limestone fillers with millimeter-sized granules of a specific size. There are two main types of plaster structures available:

After application, granular plaster has the same structure thanks to its larger number of smooth grains. The size of the grains affects how coarse the structure is. Large grains produce a coarse texture, while grains larger than 1 mm produce a fine texture.

In comparison to granular plaster, grooved plaster (scratched plaster) has fewer limestone grains. When a filler of the same structure is combined with a grain of a different size, the result, when smoothed, is a structure with grooves. The manufacturer chooses the groove orientation, which can be either vertical, horizontal, or spun corresponding to the stroke direction of the trowel.

What else should you consider while selecting a facade color?

External contact insulation systems and paint. Darker-colored facades absorb more heat than lighter-colored ones do. Darker hues put greater stress on the facade by trapping heat from the sun during the day and cooling it at night. So, for insulation systems, we do not advise using dark or intense colors.

Dark colors may be employed as a decorative accent as long as they make up no more than 10% of the facade’s overall surface area.
