Things to Consider When Looking for the Perfect Color for Your New Car

Owning a car is one of the best things and one of the most liberating feelings in the world. Being able to go wherever you want whenever you want is amazing, and this is only possible if you own a car. However, purchasing a car is a huge decision and a process that requires quite a lot of time and energy. One of the facts that might help you pick the right car is the color. Choosing the perfect color is never easy, and if you’re struggling with this issue as well, here are a few tips that might help you make up your mind.

The visual appeal

Different colors affect the visual appeal of your car in different ways, and this is something you have to remember when making the choice. Think about your favorite colors and tones, but don’t forget to take the overall visual appeal of your vehicle into consideration as well. Some models look amazing in white, but rather awful in black or green, so don’t stick to the first color you see and open up your mind to different ideas.

Just because most people stick to simple colors you can see around you every single day – red, silver, blue, grey, or beige – doesn’t mean you have to opt for those colors as well. On the contrary, nobody is stopping you from picking a more extravagant color and buying a car that’s lime green, bright yellow, pink, or even golden! It’s really up to you and your style, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box.

The price

Unfortunately, there’s a major issue you’ll have to consider if you’re thinking about picking one of the aforementioned extravagant car colors: they will boost the price of your vehicle. This is something car dealerships won’t tell you in advance – or they won’t tell it to you at all unless you ask openly – but unusual colors cost more than you can imagine.

Just because you want your car to be visually appealing and intriguing might end up elevating its price up to several thousand dollars, depending on the model, and that’s quite a lot. This is why lots of people go for those simple white cars, not because they prefer simplicity or want their car to match their iPhone, but because these are often the cheapest.

The safety

This is another issue most car owners pay zero attention to, but if something happens to their car, they wish they weren’t so ignorant. Protecting your car against scratches, rush, UV damage, oxidation, paint fading, and other disasters doesn’t have to be so hard. All you need to do is find a way that’s simple and effective, and that doesn’t require you to spend tons of money on new paint every single year.

One of the best ways to do that is by using a ceramic coating that won’t just protect your car and make it look brand new, but it will also boost its value and help you earn more should you decide to sell it in the future. There are different kinds of coatings out there and finding the absolute best is crucial. That’s why sticking to those efficient nano ceramic products might be such a great idea. These products will transform your car and make it look amazing, and you’ll fall in love with it once again!

The value

Now that we’ve mentioned the option of selling your car down the road, this is another problem you have to deal with when looking for the right car color. In case you’re thinking about replacing your car sometime in the future, finding a model that will still have a huge resale value even after a couple of years is vital. This is why you have to think ahead and pick a color that might appeal to the largest number of potential buyers.

Instead of choosing very unusual colors, stick to simple choices and go for white, black, grey, red, or blue. These colors have always been popular, and they’ll still be popular by the time you decide to sell your car. There’s a strong connection between the color of your car and its resale value, so do whatever you can to raise your chances of actually being able to sell your car in the future.


As you can see, choosing the right color for your car isn’t the easiest thing you’ll ever do, but it’s not the hardest either. Just listen to your heart, and you’ll surely make the right choice. If not, just sell your car and buy another one, or invest in a proper paint job!

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
