When it comes to choosing new siding, one of the important things you need to look into is its color. Ideally, you’ll want it to blend well with the rest of your home’s exteriors and should enhance your property further. Today’s blog post discusses tips to choosing the right color for your new siding.
Existing Color Scheme
Taking cues from your home’s existing color scheme helps a lot in finding the best color for your new siding. Check the guidelines set forth by your homeowners’ association (HOA) on the preferred color combinations for home exteriors. You can also drive around the neighborhood for inspiration.
Your home’s architecture greatly impacts your choice of siding color. Deep but muted tones like brown, dark green or navy blue are suitable for exterior walls of traditional homes, giving them a back-to-nature feel. On the other hand, contemporary styles tend to use more brightly colored siding in hues such as yellow, light turquoise or shades of gray and white.
Consider your local climate before finalizing your choice of siding color. Factor in the moisture levels, temperature fluctuations and sun exposure. Homes in typically hot and humid climates can go for cooler shades of blue or green. Alternatively, they can use lighter tones like whites, tans or grays. Darker colors absorb more heat, so brighter hues work better to keep your home cool during those warm summer days.
All style choices are personal and have to reflect your style. It’s good to have a general idea of what you like. Bold hue selections introduce a unique vibe, for instance. Explore your interests by taking time to ponder which colors speak to you. Get in touch with your local siding expert to help you make an informed decision.
