The right color palette for your siding and trim can elevate the appearance of your home exteriors. However, this can be overwhelming given the numerous possible color combinations to choose from. Peninsula Siding Company, Inc., a top provider of fire retardant siding products, highlights siding and trim color tips and ideas every homeowner should know.
Monochromatic color combinations include shades of grays, blacks, and whites. These colors look great in classic, traditional architectural home styles. If you have a crisp, clean white trim and black window shutters, try painting your siding with a mid-tone gray. This way, you can complement various exterior elements of your home.
Light and Dark
If you’re going for a dark-toned home, you can pair your deep green siding with black shutters, doors, and a roof. However, you may risk making your home look dark. For this reason, the trim throughout your home should be painted classic white. Not only will this give your home a tinge of light, but it also helps elements such as your windows to stand out boldly against the dark hues.
Another combination you should consider is contrasting hues. For homeowners with dark-colored roofs, your siding looks great with light shades such as tan. To bridge the colors of your roof and siding, your siding contractor may recommend using classic white trim and shutters that help keep the siding light while adding a cool touch to the roof.
For a multi-faceted design, feel free to feature several different colors. For instance, you can have your siding in two shades: a deep, dark gray and a lighter, warmer gray. The doors and shutters should be in a similar shade, while the trim should be a classic white color to lighten up the appearance and blend the other shades.
