- White Siding
Year after year, one siding color reigns supreme as an attractive, enduring look that goes well with every style of architecture and looks great in any neighborhood. Simple, pristine, and classic, white siding is a can’t-miss look that can be matched with a wide range of siding trim and accent colors.
Due to the design versatility of white siding, you can go just about any direction when it comes to mixing up palettes and materials. Natural wood and brick look fantastic in contrast. But depending on the architectural style of your home, there are a few tried-and-true looks that you can’t go wrong with. For example, bright white homes go well with dark gray contrast on the roof, entry door, or shutters. For a more stunning contrast, try adding black exterior frames around the windows.
- Neutral Greens
These days, what stands in for a neutral is much more flexible than it used to be. The beauty of the “new neutral” mentality is that it adds a touch of color to a home without overwhelming the exterior or standing out on your block. And when it comes to contrasting trim, you still have a wide range of flexibility as you would with a beige or a greige hue. In the realm of near-neutrals, one of the most popular trending colors right now is something from the muted green range.
As a muted green-gray, sage works well with a home’s landscape and looks spectacular during the spring, summer, and fall months. It has an understated, natural quality that makes a statement without making too much of a splash, and it looks great with deeper complementary hues or white trim.
You know that song “Walking on Sunshine?” With yellow siding on your home, you’ll feel like you’re walking on sunshine every time you come home at the end of a long day. But don’t get hung up on the brightness factor of this joyful color – there are many forms of yellow, after all! Sure, you can go all in and opt for a vivid marigold or dandelion. But the most trending shades of yellow fall more squarely into the near-neutral category with hues like butter yellow, cornsilk, or flax. When used well, a soft yellow hue can function as a cheerier alternative to white.
But what should you pair your yellow siding with? For more traditional architectural styles like a Craftsman home or Colonial, yellow siding looks fantastic with white trim. For added impact, you can create a little contrast with a gray front door, roof, or shutters. Near-neutral greens also pair well with yellows as a trim shade.
- Jewel Tones
If your neighborhood HOA doesn’t have any limitations on siding color and you’re looking to make a statement, jewel tones are bigger than they have ever been in 2022. In terms of brilliant, rich colors that don’t stick out in the wrong way, greens and blues are a strong choice and tend to enhance the look of any shrubs, trees, and florals on the lawn. Peacock, forest green, and deep royal blues can create a standout look in all the best ways in almost any neighborhood.
- Dark Colors
When you want to dress in something sleek and sophisticated, you simply can’t go wrong with basic black. That’s because black has a streamlining effect, hiding flaws and creating an instant air of class and elegance. And just as dark colors are a fantastic addition to any wardrobe, a home with dark siding can be a fantastic addition to any neighborhood as well.
Dark siding can give any home an instant update, modernizing the feel of almost any architectural style. If you’re worried a dark home will stand out too much, take a drive around and soak in some of the ways darker colors are used in your neighborhood. You don’t have to go with an onyx hue to reap the benefits of this elegant look. Deep grays like slate, charcoal, and steel look just as attractive. Or try adding replacement siding in a deep navy, azul, or pine for a hint of color.
If you’re not ready to commit to dark overall siding but you’re interested in this trend, darker shades can be excellent for focal points. Try highlighting part of your exterior and downplaying another by adding a splash of dark siding to one area of your home. Or go with a darker overall trim.
