A siding’s color is the most noticeable element of a home’s exterior; it defines your curb appeal. With so many options to choose from, selecting the color that will mesh with the rest of your exterior can be a tough job.
To help you narrow down your siding color choices, Homecraft shares the common palettes that work with common home styles:
Victorian: Cool And Clean Neutrals
Regarded as the most popular architecture in the First State, the Victorian home demands sophistication and attention. In many cases, it features different siding styles in each level, which opens an opportunity to combine hues that evoke class. Crisp white is a favorite choice for the lap siding, while dark gray for the fish scale panels of the top floor is stately. To establish a connection from the bottom, color the bay window trim and frame with a dark neutral too.
Georgian: Deep Blues
Georgian-style homes typically use only horizontal vinyl siding across the board, so limit your color to one. A rich shade of blue can be an excellent pick to make a strong and inviting first impression. With white trim and an even darker roof color, this combination is truly eye-catching. The coolness of a blue-dominant exterior palette makes a wood-like entry door stand out.
Colonial Revival: Mixed Tones
The Colonial Revival allows an obvious contrast between the top and bottom halves of the exterior even when they share similar siding styles. The bluish gray would make the second floor stand out from the ground while white would allow the first to subtly shine on its own.
Ranch: Brown And Beige
Any experienced siding contractor would say that a warm neutral scheme will make the sprawling ranch façade arresting and welcoming. Beige complements the exterior wall space while juxtaposing with the greens of the landscaping. Brown trim and roof boldly highlight non-wall areas and complement the earthly tones of the hardscaping.
