Choose the best siding and trim colors for your home using these tips.
Consider the Style of Your Home
The first thing to consider when choosing siding colors is the style of your home. If you have a Craftsman home, earth tones — such as deep reds and rich browns — will help you maintain its rustic look and feel. Low county homes look great in blue shades and neutral accents. Meanwhile, Mediterranean houses are known for their terracotta roofs and warm exterior hues. With Victorian homes, you can choose fun and bolder colors for your home. An experienced siding contractor can help you create the best color palette based on your home’s architectural design.
Select the Main Color
Keep your location in mind when choosing the main siding color. You can ask for samples from your contractor to see how the hues will look at different times of the day.
Determine What the Secondary Color Will Be
Warm and cool tones in your exterior color palette will create a balanced looking home. If the main siding color is warm, choose cool tones for the secondary color. Experts recommend limiting the siding colors to three. Doing so will ensure your exterior doesn’t look too busy.
Complete Your Home’s Look with a Complementary Trim Color
Finish your color palette selection by choosing a trim color. The right trim and accent colors will make your home look more polished. Don’t be afraid to go with a brighter or bolder trim hue if your siding colors are mostly neutrals. It will add more contrast and dimension to your exterior.
