The color of your siding plays a major role in the curb appeal of your home. No matter how beautiful and unique the architecture of your home is, you need the right color palette to make it stand out. One way to do this is by choosing the right color combination for both your siding and trim.
Light and Dark Contrasts
A contrast of light and dark colors is among the best combinations you should consider for your siding and trim. Matching both might be one of the oldest tricks in the book, but it’s a classic choice that can boost the beauty of your home. For a home with dark green exterior siding, for instance, consider pairing it with a clean, crisp white. This keeps the home from getting too dark and makes windows and doors stand out boldly against the darker siding.
You cannot go wrong with a monochromatic color palette that consists of gray, black and white shades. It complements a variety of elements of your exteriors, such as the columns on the porch. For instance, you may paint your siding with a mid-tone gray and match it with a classic white trim and black shutters.
A home with several different colors adds personality and makes your home unique. Your siding can be painted in two different shades – for example, a deep gray with a green undertone and lighter, softer gray. You may also use these colors for your shutters and garage door. For your trim, choose a crisp white hue to lighten up your home and tie the other shades together.
Flaunt the Architectural Style
Do you know that you can highlight the architectural style of your home with the use of colors? For several Victorian and other decorative architectural styles, you may notice multiple colors on their façade. Since there are so many different pieces to the architecture, try to use two or more colors to show them off. For instance, burgundy and green siding with cream-colored trim works well with these homes and makes your home stand out.
