4 Siding Trends in 2018
Your home’s exterior design is just as important as the interior design. When your exterior is thoughtfully designed, your property becomes more inviting. By installing new siding, you improve not only your home’s protection and comfort, but also its beauty. Colonial Remodeling, the leading home remodeling contractor, shares four siding trends to consider in 2018.
1. Dark and Light Colors Mixed Together
Rule of thumb: if the other components of your exterior are bold tones, choose a lighter color for your siding. This way, your exterior won’t look too overwhelming. Darker siding, on the other hand, works well with subtler window trims, headers, gable vents and other exterior components.
2. Rich Texture
This siding consideration can be expressed in two ways: contrasting or self-patterned textures. The first technique involves controlling contrasts between gloss levels of the same material. The latter, contrarily, emphasizes materials with more elongated shapes. Get in touch with your siding installation contractor to help you figure which texture or pattern would look best on your home.
3. Neutral Tones
The year 2018 won’t be saying goodbye to grays, beiges or off-whites. For a break in the neutrality, consider mixing in dark gray. Our partnership with James Hardie®, one of the biggest names in the siding industry, allows us to deliver superior siding products that come in a wide array of color options. We’ll help you pick the right option for your needs and preferences.
4. Mixed Siding
Combining different siding colors, textures and sizes might seem risky, but with the proper planning and preparation, it can make your home stand out. Work with a trustworthy contractor to ensure excellent results.
