Ready to upgrade your staycation? Benjamin Moore’s wide range of exterior paints and stains transform outdoor spaces into at-home sanctuaries.
In addition to al fresco fun, outdoor spaces extend the space of your home. Whether you are looking to refresh your patio, spruce up your front porch, or punch up your poolside setting, paint color and stain is a starting point for bringing relaxing vibes home.
Porch Paint Ideas: Beyond Neutral
Your porch is the ultimate “outside room.” Before you start looking for the perfect patio paint color to extend your interior outdoors, consider how much sun it gets, since light and time of day affect paint color appearance.
Colorful accessories are an easy and cost-effective way to elevate a porch or patio. Here, Adirondack chairs in Caliente AF-290 and light pink pillows add fun against cool Nimbus Gray 2131-50 siding, paired with monochromatic gray floors in Normandy 2129-40, ARBORCOAT® Exterior Stain, Semi-Solid. Other porch paint colors we love include Georgian Brick HC-50, Hawthorne Yellow HC-4 and Kennebunkport Green HC-123.
Feeling in a DIY mood? You can easily repaint or stain your existing outdoor patio furniture in a weekend! Simply choose a wood stain color and get started.
Porch Paint Idea: The Beauty of a Light Blue Ceiling
Always popular in the southern United States, blue porch ceilings have made their way north over time. Light blue porch ceilings are beloved for matching the color of the sky, helping to visually extend daylight.
You can achieve this look with Palladian Blue HC-144, Arctic Blue 2050-60, Yarmouth Blue HC-150, or Clear Skies 2054-70. Pair these light blues with White Diamond OC-61, a cool white trim, to draw eyes to the ceiling, and explore other whites in our Off White Collection.
The Floors Have It: Patio Paint Ideas
Your patio is just like any other room in your home—this one just happens to be outside! Off-whites, like Cloud Cover OC-25 and Gray Owl 0C-52, pictured here, create a fresh, clean backdrop for any accent color.
Most patio floors have flagstone, brick or some other type of paver that offer an earthy foundation that goes with a range of hues. If your patio floor needs a facelift, consider Floor & Patio, a quick-drying, easy-to-apply latex enamel ideal for lanais, porches–even concrete patios. We love it for its convenient “ready mix” colors: 74 Platinum Gray and 71 Deck Gray, are two favorite options, available in low sheen or high gloss. Looking for something brighter? Floor & Patio can also be tinted in any one of Benjamin Moore’s 3,500 colors, engineered with Gennex® Color Technology.
