paint board & batten and brick same or diff?

azjennySeptember 25, 2013

Hi all, I have been a lurker here for a long time but this is my first time actually posting I think...

I am getting ready to completely remodel a ranch house that was built in 1953... It has not been touched since then.

We are going to paint the brick because we won't be able to match it perfectly and need to change some of the window shapes, etc.. I can't decide if we should paint the brick and board & batten areas the same or different colors. Or a different shade of the same color.

I am pretty sure I will leave the b&b a shade of white, but should the brick be white as well, or maybe gray? And if gray, how dark?

I do need to figure this out at least somewhat soon, because it may help me figure out what color to order the new windows.

I am attaching a pic of the outside of the house now, and a pic of the rendering of what it may look like when it's done.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

And here is the picture of the possible outcome, but paint could obviously go another way...
