4 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Siding Color

When planning for your upcoming siding re1placement, the color should have the same amount of consideration as other features. The right siding color can significantly boost your home’s curb appeal and increase your satisfaction with your home, so consider the following before making your final choice.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Siding Color

  1. The neighborhood color palette – We’re all for unique color palettes, but not to the point where your home sticks out like a sore thumb in your block. Drive or walk a few blocks and pay special attention to your neighbors’ color schemes—not just particular siding colors, but how they blend with other elements like roof and trim.

  2. Your existing roof color – Roof, siding, and trim colors go hand-in-hand, which is why you shouldn’t focus on just siding colors when comparing houses. Unless your roof will be replaced a few months after your siding, take your roof into consideration: after all, roofs tend to outlast siding in terms of lifespan.

  3. Your home’s architectural style – Your home’s existing architectural design should clue you in on your siding color choices. For example, Mediterranean-inspired architecture works well with warm siding colors like orange, while Craftsman-style homes tend to lean more towards dark earth tones like olive green.

  4. Your home’s size – Colors have differing effects depending on your home’s size. Dark colors add a sense of richness to typical single-unit homes but create gloominess in large homes. Conversely, pastels add a cozy look to large homes but make small houses look even smaller.
