Do you need to have new gutters installed around the outside of your home? You’ll have a handful of different types to choose from prior to doing gutter installation.

For example, there are both seamed and seamless gutters. There are also gutters made out of many different materials, including vinyl, aluminum, and copper.

But while you’re shopping around for new gutters, there is one other aspect of them you should keep in mind. You’ll want to pick the right gutter colors. Ideally, you should try to find gutter colors that will match either your entire home exterior or, at the very least, your home paint trim.

Would you like to learn about some of the best gutter colors that’ll be available to you? We’re going to talk about some of them today so that you can select a color that’ll complement your house color.

Discover what you need to know about gutter colors below.

What Are the Best Gutter Colors?

When you picture a set of gutters in your head, which color are they? There’s a very good chance you just imagined white gutters.

While there are certainly plenty of gutter colors out there, most homeowners still choose to go with white ones. You’re welcome to do this if you’d like, but you should also know it isn’t necessary.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the best gutter colors and when you should choose them.


As we just alluded to, you really can’t even go wrong with white gutters. While you aren’t going to knock anyone’s socks off with them, white gutters are the safest choice for homeowners.

White colors also go very well with many different house color options. For instance, you’ll fall in love with the way that white gutters look when your home is painted a light blue or grey color. It’ll also be the right choice for those with darker paint colors or even brick on their home exteriors.

You shouldn’t automatically default to white gutters when there are so many other gutter colors available. But there’s also nothing wrong with going with white gutters if you really like what they have to offer.


Do you like the idea of selecting gutter colors that aren’t white but that also aren’t too far off from white just to mix things up a little? Then you might like what grey gutters have to offer.

Much like white gutters, grey gutters will get the job done when you have a house that’s painted light blue or even grey. They’ll look especially good when you have white home paint trim that’ll go nicely with grey gutters.


You’re going to need to be very careful if you decide to give your house a monochromatic look by matching up your home exterior paint with your gutters. It isn’t always going to look right when you do it.

But if you like the idea of giving it a try, using shades of green will be a great option. You can paint your house sage, olive, or another earthy green color and find green gutters to go along with this color.

Just try to make sure your green gutters are either much lighter or much darker than the color of your house so that they don’t blend right into one another.


Is your house painted white or another very light color? You can go with white gutters in this instance and get away with doing it. But if you want to make a bolder statement, how about putting black gutters to the test?

Black gutters aren’t always going to look good on homes. But they might just do the trick when you’re interested in trying to contrast the white paint color on it. The aforementioned grey gutters might be a nice choice, too.


If you really want to choose an off-the-wall color for your gutters, why not experiment with the idea of picking out red ones? Of all the gutter colors on this list, they’re the wildest of the bunch.

Your home will need to be a particular style for you to pull off red gutters. You’ll also need to have the right personality to attempt to go with red gutters.

But if you can make a set of red gutters work, they’re definitely going to help you set your house apart from all the rest. They’ll spice up your curb appeal from the start.

How to Choose the Right Gutter Colors

If you know that you want to run with white gutters from the very start, you won’t even need to bother shopping around for other gutter colors. But if you think you might want to go in a different direction, you’re going to need to take the right steps while shopping for gutter colors to avoid getting overwhelmed.

Here are some tips on choosing the right gutter colors:

  • Make sure you’ve painted your house the color you want to keep it
  • Ask a gutter installation company which gutter colors would work best for your home
  • See if you can obtain samples of gutter colors so you can see them in person
  • Think about how different gutter colors will impact your curb appeal

Searching for the right gutter colors can be a time-consuming process. But all the effort you put into it will be well worth it in the end. The gutter colors you choose will put an exclamation point on the design of your home’s exterior.
