How to Choose the Right Color for Exterior Siding

The exterior siding color of your house can show off your personal style to friends, neighbors and anyone who strolls by your home. Are you wondering what siding color is right for you? We’ve compiled some tips and tricks for picking the perfect siding color for your lifestyle.

What is the Color of Your Roof?

Before you choose a color for your exterior siding, it’s important to take note of the current color of your roof. The color of your roof and the color of your siding should complement each color. Usually, a dark colored roof matches well with a lighter color siding and vice-versa.

What Does Your Neighborhood Look Like?

If you want your house to fit with the feel of the area, go along with the color scheme of your neighborhood. Choose a color in the same family as your neighbors. This may be neutral colored sidings, bright colored sidings or warm toned sidings. Alternatively, if you want your house to stick out and show off your unique personality, choose any color that best reflects your style.

What’s the Style of Your House?

Different house styles look better with certain colors. For instance, stone color hues fit with Tuscan homes, warm colors work perfectly with cabins and houses in the mountains and woods. Victorian homes are known to showcase bright colors.

Will the Color Show Dirt Easily?

Painting your siding the same color as the dirt allows it to blend in with your house, so it won’t be obvious for miles away. Keep in mind that dirt is different colored in different climates! Dark colored houses are abound in Minnesota where, consequently, the soil is a dark brown color.
