Colorful Rowhouses of the World

by Erika Woelfel

Rowhouses or townhomes can be found in just about any city in any country around the world. They are one of the most efficient and common types of residential housing. Balanced somewhere between an apartment and a house, a townhome offers the space and flexibility of a single family dwelling, and the low maintenance ease of an apartment. Walls may be shared, but entrances are private. Depending on building association rules and terms, owners are often able to renovate and remodel their rooms as they please. 

When town home units are individually owned, residents are also responsible for maintaining the front aspect of their property. As you might imagine, it can be a challenge when neighbors have differing opinions on paint and color! A consultation with an architectural color planner often provides harmonious results. Collaboration with the neighbors can also yield some fun and creative solutions. It’s a great way to show the world your true colors! Here’s a little tour:
