The exterior of your property and its color should be modified to conform to contemporary trends since they influence a home’s value and curb appeal.

Before finalizing the design of your home, it is crucial to be aware of current trends because the external design of your home can make or break it. If you intend to list your house for sale shortly, this is very important. What are some popular color trends for your siding?  Here are some…

#1 Use analogous colors to create a sleek look

#1 Use analogous colors to create a sleek look

Three colors that are close to each other on the color wheel make up an analogous color scheme, such as red, orange and red-orange, or green, yellow and yellow-green. These color triads work nicely together since they are similar to one another. However, they also provide you the chance to develop a distinctive, vivacious look.

#2 Consider this color 

#2 Consider this color 

Consider a warm, rich color like Night Gray for an appearance that is timeless and gives a traditional feel. On components like trim and shutters, choose a tint darker or lighter.

#3 High-contrast black and white for drama

The contrast between black and white on your house makes a strong, dramatic impact.

Choose a dark hue for the siding, and choose a lighter shade for the trim. This method is a fantastic way to achieve a modern Farmhouse aesthetic. Use siding in Black Ash, Iron Gray, Jet Black or Black Water and then go with Arctic White for the trim.

If you live in an older area, even adjacent to more traditional homes, a black exterior with white trim looks modern.

#4 Incorporate deep, warm colors

Warm colors that can be employed in many different contexts to produce a pleasing aesthetic include varied tones of red, orange, yellow and brown. Row homes, rural areas and historic residences can all use bright, warm colors.

#5 Select calming cool colors

Cool colors like sky blue, pale green and soft gray are preferred for homes of all types for a reason. These calming, unassuming colors give off a relaxing vibe that helps a house look lovely and blends in well with surrounding homes. On vinyl-sided homes, the cool hues look fantastic.

Look for cool hues that complement the sky or ocean while selecting them. Both deep and light blues work as long as they complement what you see on the outside. Platform Beige goes well with a soft blue that isn’t overbearing if you want to create a clean, crisp look.

#6 Ground yourself in natural shades

Modern homes frequently feature colors that are similar to those found in nature. With a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere, this method helps your home blend into its natural surroundings. Take a cue from nature and think about how your grass and landscape are set up in order to discover a nice fit.

If a house has a lot of leafy trees in its yard, lush greens and yellow greens look nice. A few other common natural siding colors are Mountain Sage, Deep Ocean, Timber Bark and Aged Pewter.

#7  Go airy and light

It is usually appropriate to use a light, airy color scheme. Colonials and historic houses make the ideal backdrop for bright colors.

For the bottom floor of your house, use a delicate, light color like Arctic White or Pearl Gray. For the second story, pick a darker hue. For Tudors and cottage homes, this blend of classic and modern styles works beautifully.

#8 Maintain a modern look with classy neutrals

If your home is contemporary in style or if the houses next door are already painted in dark, bold colors, neutral hues will work exceptionally well. Your home will look elegant and appealing if you use a neutral color palette.


Vinyl siding in lighter hues can endure more direct sunlight than siding in deeper shades.
