A good combination of siding and trim colors can make your home stand out. Fortunately, by taking note of some basic rules, you can easily determine the best color scheme for your humble abode.
Keep reading for some tips on how to achieve an eye-catching color combination for your siding and trim.
Pick muted colors that contrast each other, such as a light tan siding and blue/gray trims. This will help create a fluid appearance for your home’s exterior and keep the accent colors from stealing the spotlight.
When creating a monochromatic look, gray, black and white easily come to mind. But there are other color combinations that you can use to achieve a monochromatic exterior. For example, a mid-tone gray siding works well with crisp white trims or black shutters.
Light and Dark Colors
If you’ve chosen a dark-colored siding, you can tone it down a bit or keep it from getting too dark by adding a classic white trim. This will also help your windows stand out against the darker facade.
Triple-Tone Color Scheme
A triple-tone color palette is great for home exteriors with a mix of different architectural accents. For example, if your skirting is made of a different material than your siding, you can use two siding colors that are subtly different. Then, match one of these colors with the skirting so that the elements are tied together.
Rich, Warm Tones
To achieve a rich, warm exterior, you can use deep gray with a warm undertone for your siding. Then, pair it with off-white trim. A bright white trim will look cold against this warm gray tone, so you should avoid the classic, crisp white.
