Changing the color of your siding will make a pretty big impact on your home’s exterior and can either significantly improve or seriously diminish your overall curb appeal. Needless to say, it is important to get it right. Choosing the right siding color can be an intimidating process but there’s no need for you to worry. In today’s post, a trusted siding and awning contractor shares a few tips on how to pick the perfect one that’s right for you.
Let Your Architecture Guide You
One useful piece of advice that most homeowners find helpful is to let your home’s architecture guide you in your selection. Different architectural styles lend themselves to different color palettes. For instance, a warm or earthy tone will work very well on a craftsman-style house while bold color combinations look great on Victorian homes.
Choose a Secondary Color
After you have selected your primary color, you should then select a secondary color or stone color. You and your siding contractor should pick out a color that complements the primary color to achieve good harmony and balance. For example, if you go for a cool neutral primary color, you should accent it with a warm secondary color to help it pop.
The Rule of Three
Finally, make sure that you limit your selection to three colors including the color of your stone and trim. Choosing more than three colors may seem like a fun and expressive way to give your home’s exterior that extra oomph but it could end up looking like a patchwork quilt.
