Siding takes up a significant portion of your home exterior. It can make or break your home’s curb appeal and resale value, so you have to choose your siding colors carefully. In this post, top-rated siding contractor Peninsula Siding Company, Inc. shares a few essential tips on selecting siding colors.
Generally, you’d want to start off by creating a color palette for your home exterior. However, even this can be a little intimidating since there are numerous color combinations that you can actually come up with. One way to simplify your selection process is by letting the style of your home guide you in making a color palette.
Different home styles usually go great with particular colors. For instance, a rugged, earthy color palette suits craftsman homes well. So for this kind of style, you might want to consider deep reds, rich browns and olive greens. If you have a Tuscan-style home, your exterior should prominently feature stone with warmer tones. Make sure to pick your stone color first; then, choose a siding color that complements it.
Rest assured that regardless of your home style, you’ll have enough options among siding products. Our experts would also be happy to assist you in selecting specific shades for your color palette.
Main, Secondary and Trim Colors
When choosing your main siding color, make sure to have a look at the color in the location where you will be using it. Request a color sample that you can take home, so you’ll be able to look at it in full sunlight. After selecting your main siding color, choose a secondary siding color and stone color. It’s good to have a well-balanced color palette for your home exterior, meaning you should pick warm and cool tones that complement each other. Lastly, for finishing touches, choose a trim color and accents. Classic, white trim works great with almost any color palette. But if your siding colors are neutral and subdued, you might want to use a bold trim color to give your home exterior a pop of color.
