SIX RULES FOR CHOOSING A SIDING COLOR

It can be very stressful to choose the right color for your New Orleans house. It is a big decision due to the cost and the risk of losing your home. We are here to help you choose the right color for your home.

CHOOSE A COLOR YOU LIKE IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

You don't have to be restricted by your neighborhood's color palette. Take a walk around your neighborhood to find the color schemes that you like and what would work well on your street. If your neighbors are considering replacing their New Orleans Siding, you could talk to them about color options. The possibilities are endless if your neighborhood is eclectic.

MATCH THE ARCHITECTURE IN YOUR HOME

Your home's style can also play a major role in your decision. Consider imitating a traditional style if your home was built in a particular era. You can still add modern flair to your home by selecting a complementary color for architectural accents in a contemporary shade. Consider the type of siding that was used in your home's past. Modern homes may allow you to mix and match different siding types, making your home stand out.

THINK ABOUT YOUR HOME'S SIZE & WHAT YOU WANT to EMPHASIZE

Although swatching a color on your house can help you determine what color would look best, it is also a great idea to consult these color rules.

  • Large homes with dark colors can look overwhelming and gloomy.
  • Smaller homes with lighter colors can be easily lost in the landscape because they are often too light.
  • While light colors are often less important, dark colors can be used to draw attention to architectural elements.

These aren't necessarily hard-and-fast rules but they can help you make your home look its best and increase curb appeal.

CONSIDER YOUR ROOF'S COLOR

It is easy to get so focused on trim and siding that you forget about the roof. Your roof color can have a significant impact on the color scheme that you choose for your home. It can also affect how it looks. These are some color guidelines to help you choose siding colors that match your roof.

  • Dark roofs can add an interesting accent to lighter siding colors
  • A neutral roof can complement a variety of siding colors.

Consider all elements of your roof when replacing it. This will help you create a plan to get the home you want. New Orleans Roofing Expert also offers roofing services.

LOOK AT YOUR LANDSCAPING

Although landscaping doesn't make or break a color, it can play an important role. It's simple to overlook the siding when looking at siding colors. Your home's exterior, roof, and landscaping all affect how it looks. Consider modern siding colors that are more minimalistic and stark if your landscaping is not appealing to you. Consider a classic or whimsical color option if your home looks more like a 1900s cottage.

THINK ABOUT THE YOUNG CLIMATE

Your home's climate will have an impact on how it feels and looks. A darker siding color can have a negative impact on your home's energy efficiency. But, the sun can make any color appear brighter. It is also worth considering how your home appears during different seasons or times of the day. Consider how the paint looks in the morning, afternoon, and evening.

CONSIDER COMPLIMENTARY COORS

Complementary colors can help you create a cohesive look that matches the feel of your neighborhood, your landscaping layout, and the architectural elements of the house. You are free to create your own unique look. A good rule of thumb for choosing the right colors for your home is to choose one complimenting color and then pick a color that is one to two shades darker.
