10 weatherboard house colours

Are you looking for a weatherboard paint colour? I get asked often about my own house (further down) and so I went searching for other options to show you today. Of course these colours don’t have to be limited to weatherboard, they’d look good on render or brick. You might be after a grey, a green, a brown… below are 10 weatherboard house colour which may suit your style.

Check them out…

This gorgeous light and bright beach house is painted in Dulux Grey Pebble with a Colorbond roof in Windspray.

If you’re after a creamier/browner tone then this home above is painted in Dulux Oyster Linen for the weatherboards and Aspen Snow for the trims.

This large home looks stunning sitting in nature. The boards are painted in Dulux Milton moon. I think the Colorbond roof is Windspray (I can’t confirm that, but I am just guessing?).

You might have seen this home before on social media. It’s had a massive reno (not technically weatherboard, but still an idea for you!). The main colour is Taubmans Gibraltar Grey.

A nice traditional white and grey mix here. The weatherboards are painted in Dulux Tranquil Retreat and the pathway is painted in Ironstone (Colorbond colour).

Here is a home with traditional federation features. The boards are painted in Dulux Hog Bristle and the trims are in Dulux Whisper White.

This beach shack is beautiful! The green tones suit its natural environment. I’m in love. It’s painted in Dulux White box with the planter box behind the chair in Dulux Happy Days (great contrast colour).

Oooo I love this home above – what a crisp looking weatherboard. The boards are Dulux Mt Hikurangi and the trims are Dulux St Clair Half with a Surfmist Colorbond roof.

If you’re after a darker look then this home makes it work. The weatherboard exterior is Dulux Mt Eden, window trims Vivid White, and Shale Grey for the fascia.

And finally, this is my own house. When the sun is on it (like in the photo above, which was taken ages ago because those hedges are now much bigger) the paint looks whiter and brighter, but when the sun isn’t as fierce it’s a lovely grey tone. I wrote more about my house here.

I love the grey/white tones. They are my favourite. Although I am being drawn to that green beach house too! If you’re after a WHITE interior house colour, then I wrote a big post with ideas over here too.

    Hi Katrina, Hoping you maybe able to suggest a blue hue for our Scyon weatherboards. We picked taubmans mojo but it is a charcoal colour. Why do paint companies photo shop their brochures! Thank you and regs Kim

    I love your colour knowledge. I’m struggling to find a grey that will match our red/brown/ grey bricks.suggestions?

    May I ask who built your home?? I love it, and the colours esp that pretty pink front door!

      A local builder in Wagga did it. I drew the plans and chose everything. xx

      H Katrina,
      I absolutely love the colours of your house. I’m currently in the process of building a single story home near the beach. Unfortunately the council would not allow me to have a house that is too light. The original colours that I selected was Shale Grey roof and cladding with Surfmist garage door, trims, and posts. I was allowed to have a shale grey roof, garage door and trim in Surfmist, but was forced to choose a darker grey for the weatherboard. Unfortunately I was given misleading information on a Taubmans colour called Inverness, and as a result I now have a grey, with purple undertones on the cladding. I don’t know how this happened, as Taubmans confirmed there was no purple in this colour. I’m completely heart broken, and I think the big blue 2 storey house on the north west side maybe influencing my colours. I’m going to have to repaint the house myself after handover. I can change the colour to whatever I want after I get my OC for the house, and was wondering if you could please recommend a colour that will compliment my shale grey roof and garage door. The house is single storey, and is entirely weath board. I would appreciate any advice you may.
      Thanks
      Marie

    You seem to have a wealth of knowledge! Do you think a clourbond roof in woodland grey would go with Dulux Oyster Linen for the weatherboards and Aspen Snow for the trims? I’m struggloing to find a colour scheme to go with our roof

    Hi Katrina
    Love your inspirational pics. We are about to paint the render on our home. Milton Moon.
    We are keeping the portico pillars in Monument. We have black window frames.
    What are your ideas please to paint the timber accents.
    Thank you
    Trish

    Hi,
    Loving your page. I’m kinda stuck because I love the colour of your house mainly because it’s light and bright to me. My husband’s shed though will have a woodland grey roof and shale grey exterior. Worried the roofs are going to look so different it will look stupid. Also, inside I want simple colours whites and grey but I’m having a black tapware and cupboard handles. I was thinking white cupboards and black island bottom with white and a line of blacks running through it. Stone for that but laminate for bathrooms. I have no eye for design but definitely want it to come off as it’s our forever home. I’m using dulux and colourbond. Any advice?
