What Are Some Good Brick Colors for New Homes?

The colors for homes finished in brick include black, tan, cream, white, pink, red, buff, brown and gray.The color of brick used in a home is very important to the overall look of a house and one of the main elements to consider when choosing a brick color is the roof since it's the main feature of the house, notes Better Home and Gardens.

Color choice can depend on what part of the house a homeowner wishes to accent or have stand out. Dark-colored brick is going to be the focus on a home, especially with similar paint or stone colors. Neutral colors of brick can make the other features of the house stand out instead of the brick depending on what color paint or finishes a homeowner uses. Yellow is a good paint color to put with cream-colored bricks, and stained wood works well with red bricks, states Better Homes and Gardens.
