Do you know which siding color would look best on your home?

This is a fun topic because there are a plethora of color and shading options available to Kentucky homeowners these days. Especially when you select a premium fiber-cement variety, like James Hardie Siding, there’s endless potential to put together something amazing.

Siding Color: Coordinating it with the Rest of Your Home

Do you already have a style for your home or do you want to build one from scratch?

Siding colors can help you cultivate something even if you don’t have an established theme. You can, for example, put together a Colonial style home exterior by selecting a white or beige siding to match window shutters with darker accents. Likewise, you might want to fabricate the popular Craftsman home appearance with earthy colors like tan or certain brown patterns.

Regardless of what you pursue, the key is to consider what goes along with your siding. While it’s okay to either contrast or compliment the various components, you should study which colors work best with one another. There are no hard rules for colors and shades. However, you don’t want to risk ruining your home’s curb appeal to something bizarre like orange siding with purple doors (unless you’re in a university town with those school colors).

Here are a few other factors many homeowners consider for their exterior colors:

  • Warm colors versus cool colors
  • Matching peripheral item colors (gutters, eaves, rafters, railings, light fixtures, etc.)
  • Landscaping influences (trees, flowers, storage sheds)
  • Neighborhood trends (especially if you have HOA regulations to follow)

Choose James Hardie Siding for Spectacular Variety

As you know, we’re big fans of fiber-cement siding, particularly from the James Hardie company. One fantastic reason to upgrade to that material is the beautification opportunity. You can see from James Hardie’s website all the novel color choices they offer.

This is a small sample of what you’ll find.

  • Cobble Stone
  • Pearl Gray
  • Boothbay Blue
  • Navajo Beige
  • Timber Bark
  • Night Gray
  • Mountain Sage
  • Monterey Taupe

So, while in some places you just can’t get away with ordinary vinyl, James Hardie Siding allows you to stay on top of home exterior styles and trends. This is an essential concern if you decide to sell your home some day.

Don’t Forget About Upgrading Other Exterior Components

Then, if you’re feeling really ambitious, and want to tackle another major home improvement project, you can look at other things like windows and doors. In one of our previous articles, we discussed many ways to select the best door colors. Again, there are plenty of options, and it usually boils down to what kind of exterior style you wish to build.

If you have lots of rich foliage around you, you might select a window/siding/door scheme that uses traditional stains like mahogany, oak, alder, or other wooden/earthy colors. When in doubt, check out the designs you see around your neighborhood. While you don’t have to conform your exterior components to fit everyone else perfectly, it doesn’t hurt to have congruity with the rest of your community.
