As an automotive owner, you may get tired of the original color of your car or perhaps you are in the market to change the looks of your car? Painting your car can be a great way to release your creative side and give a fresh look to your car. Wanting to learn how to choose the right color? Read more below to find out how.

First and foremost, choosing the “right” car color is solely based on your preference. The reality is that there is no right or wrong automotive color. However, there are some factors that you should consider when choosing. Besides personal preference, one factor to consider is the maintenance that will be needed based on the color. Different colors will require more or less maintenance. Dirt and scratches will look more prominent on colors such as red and black. Lighter shades such as gray, silver, and white are amongst the easier colors to maintain. As well as maintenance, darker colors will absorb more heat than lighter colors which will reflect the heat. Also, on the financial side of things, when painting your car, it is important to keep the resale price in mind. Certain colors such as bold and loud colors will provide less resale value than the classic colors. If you are intending to own the car for the rest of its lifetime, go crazy! This can be a great way to express who you are as a person.
