Considerations for Remodelling Your Home's Exterior

Revamp your home's exterior wall paint when you remodel with Dulux's expert tips and high-quality paint for a stunning transformation.

The exterior walls of a house are its face to the world. It's the first thing people see when they visit or pass by. Changing the exterior wall paint is one of the simplest ways of remodelling your house, and regularly refreshing it helps with maintenance while keeping up the aesthetic appeal. 

When choosing exterior wall paint, there are several factors to consider. The climate and location of the house, the type of material, and the colour scheme of the surroundings all play a role in making the right choice. In India, where the climate varies from region to region, an exterior paint combination that can withstand extreme weather conditions is non-negotiable.

The Right Paint Type

Dulux offers a wide variety of paint types, including water-based, oil-based, and acrylic-based to choose from. Water-based paints are the most popular as they are easy to apply and dry quickly. They are also environmentally friendly and have a low odour. However, they may not be as durable as oil-based or acrylic-based paints, which can last longer and provide better protection against harsh weather.

Colour Scheme Selection

In a country as vibrant as ours, bright and bold colours are the norm for exterior walls. However, one must choose a colour that complements the surrounding landscape yet can stand out amongst others. A safe bet is to opt for neutral shades like beige, grey, or white, which showcase a classic and elegant look. But to add a pop of colour, you can paint your doors or windows in a contrasting shade. Dulux's ever-expanding catalogue of colours offers a wide range to help you select the right colour scheme for your exteriors. 

Texture and Finish

Another factor to consider when choosing an exterior paint combination is the texture and finish. Experimenting with textured paints can add depth and dimension to your walls, while glossy finishes make them look more modern and sleek. However, it's imperative to consider that textured and glossy finishes may highlight imperfections and make them more noticeable. 



In addition to the above factors, it's essential to choose high-quality paint that can withstand the harsh Indian climate. Look for water-resistant, UV-resistant, and mould-resistant paints, as they can help protect your walls from the elements and keep them looking new for longer. The Dulux Weathershield Max and Aquatech Waterblock 2K are great examples of exterior paint combinations.


Remodelling your exterior wall paint can transform the look of your house and add to its value. Choosing the right paint type, colour scheme, texture, and finish for your house can give it a fresh and modern look while maintaining its homely charm. Dulux's expansive range of colours and finishes makes it easy to find the perfect exterior paint combination to suit your style.
