You don’t have to allow conventions to bottle you up when it comes to your home design. While the architectural style can be familiar, that doesn’t mean you can’t show some creativity that will help separate your home from the rest.
To achieve this, start with your new siding and trim when you tackle a remodeling project to add curb appeal and value to your home. Here are some examples of how to do it:
Look for Different Choices
Homeowners who prefer the safe and conventional will have no problem installing traditional lap siding and trim. But if you want your home to be different from the rest in your neighborhood, look for other choices when shopping for trim, siding, soffits and fascia.
Think About Texture and Depth
The right texture and depth will add visual interest to your home instead of the same old boring styles that don’t excite the senses. For example, when it comes to siding, go for shake siding instead of the traditional lap. Discuss different trim colors with your siding contractor, as well.
Make a Statement
Making a statement with trim, siding, fascia and soffit is possible. If you’re replacing your windows, as well, for example, you can choose the right trim around your new windows that make them pop. The right trim color, width, texture and profile can draw the eyes to your new and better windows.
Use contrasting and bold colors to separate your home’s look from your neighbors. For example, try mixing bright white trim with grey or darker siding. Talk to your contractor about a siding style that achieves shadows and depth.
