In the mean time, we’ve come up with five questions you should think over when picking out a color for the siding.
1. What Is The Size Of Your Home?
Some colors that contrast between light and dark can completely change the homes appearance. Since color swatches can generally seem misleading, be aware of the effect it has on the building. Dark shades draw attention to features while light colors tend to neutralize.
2. What Is The Design Or Architecture Of My Home?
Certain style homes look better with specific shades while other styles can match any color. Note the visual cues of your home when selecting the color of the siding.
3. What Do The Homes In My Neighborhood Look Like?
We aren’t suggesting you copy the same styles as your neighbors, but if you pick out an over the top shade, it might look funny against the scene as a whole and in some cases, cause a stir with any homeowners associations. So consider the outdoor surroundings during the process of your color selection.
4. Does The Shade Look Good All Year Around?
Since our area experiences erratic seasonal changes, the color of your siding may appear differently based on the weather. For example, bright direct sunlight can make colors look brighter. We suggest applying color swatches to the house so that you can view them during different times of the day effectively giving you a feel for how the shade will look.
5. What Other Colors Are You Working With?
If you are trying to combine other features of your home with the siding, definitely keep those in mind while making your decision. The shades should complement each other well for an elegant appearance so don’t let the color of the siding be your main color scheme. Choose one that brings light to all of the aspects of the structure.
