If you’re looking for ways to improve your home’s curb appeal and give it an updated appearance, there’s no more dramatic way to do so than with a siding replacement. Choosing a new siding color can completely transform the appearance of your home.

 

But choosing the right color for your home can be a difficult decision. In this post, our siding replacement experts at The Window Store offer professional advice on choosing a new siding color for your home. Follow this advice to create a beautiful exterior you’ll love coming home to years from now. 

1.   Choose Your Trim Colors

When you’re deciding on trim colors for your home, start by deciding how many colors you want to use. Some architectural styles work well with multiple colors, especially older homes. Many Queen Anne and Cape Cod homes will integrate more than one color for trim detail. Modern homes, on the other hand, tend to be simple and use less color. Take a look at images of other homes with a similar architectural style online and start there.

2.   Blend into the Neighborhood

A house that stands out dramatically can detract from the appeal of the neighborhood and may even go against your Homeowner’s Association regulations. Don’t feel obligated to match the neighbors, but it may be worth considering the overall tone of your neighborhood or get inspired by other homes. Take a drive around the block and look for homes that you feel work really well. Consider going with a similar look.

3.   Consider Your Home’s Features

Does your house have brick or stonework? Be sure to consider the coloring of these details when choosing a siding color for your home. A good rule of thumb is to remember warm colors look best with other warm shades while cool hues look better with similar cool tones. You should also consider the color of your roof, especially if you don’t plan to replace it anytime soon.
