Remember that your siding makes up a huge chunk of your home’s exterior. As such, it can significantly impact your home’s curb appeal and resale value, making your siding color a critical choice to make. Fortunately, today, we share some helpful tips to let you pick the best siding colors.
Depends on Your Home’s Style
First off, it’s a good idea to start off by creating a palette for your home’s exterior. This can be tough for some homeowners since there are tons of color options. The easiest way to narrow down your color choices is by basing your siding color on your home’s architectural style to create a color palette.
Your exterior services expert will tell you that certain home styles go great with certain color combinations. For example, earthy shades fit craftsman homes pretty well. If you have a Tuscan-style home, you can choose warmer colors. Try to pick your stone color first, and follow it up with the siding color that goes well with it.
Main, Secondary and Trim Colors
Before picking your main siding color, take a look at the color of the place you’re planning to paint over in the space. Try to request a color swatch so that you can hold it up and see how it will look like with your exterior under full sunlight. Once you’re done picking your main siding color, pick a secondary siding color and then a stone color.
You should have a well-balanced color palette so that your home isn’t too overwhelming. A safe way to do so is to pick warm and cool color tones that go well with each other. For finishing touches, pick accents and trim colors that go well with your home. A safe bet is always to go for white trims, but you can go with bold color options if you think that your scheme is too bland.
