Choosing the perfect siding color for your home
Tips to help you decide which color will work best
Are you ready to invest in new siding?
Having trouble deciding what color is right for your home? You’re not alone. Today’s siding color options seem almost infinite, making the decision on which color a lot harder.
1. Consider your house type.
Do you have a Colonial, Victorian, or any other period home design? The architecture of these homes look their best when the siding color choice is a common color from the historical period.
2. Consider nearby houses
What colors of siding are typical in your neighborhood? Do you want to blend with the other homes or would you prefer to stand out?
3. Do you want your house to look larger or smaller?
Choosing a dark color will make your home look smaller. Light colors tend to make a house look larger. Choosing more than 1 color is usually best for a two-story house.
4. Consider the features of your house.
Don’t forget your roof! Taking the color of your roof into account will make all the difference in the world. You want to make sure that the roof complements the new siding color harmoniously. Also, check out the landscaping. This is also important because you want to make sure the colors that are present in the natural surroundings of your home will work well with the siding color you choose.
5. Remember the trim.
Homes with well-coordinated trim and siding are especially attractive to the eye. The best way to complement the trim to the siding would be to choose a lighter trim if your siding is a darker color, or choose a darker trim if your siding is a light color.
One last thing to remember with your new siding project, no matter how amazing the color selection may be, you need to make sure that you choose a quality siding material for your investment. Cheap siding will not hold its color and is more susceptible to cracking and fading over time.
