Complementary Styles and Contrasting Colors Make a Bold Statement

Vinyl siding has long been a popular cladding choice for homeowners who are looking for durability, ease-of-maintenance, environmental impact and value; insulated vinyl siding is also available for those homeowners who wish to improve energy efficiency as well. In recent years, manufacturers have expanded vinyl siding color and style options to include deeper, more modern colors and a variety of decorative siding panels, making it possible for homeowners to achieve an up-to-date home exterior that is rich in curb appeal.. According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2019 Cost vs. Value Report, “curb appeal” projects generated overall higher returns on investment than other types of projects, and vinyl siding ranks as one of the best overall home improvement values.

When designing a home exterior, the siding and trim can be chosen in complementary lighter hues like beiges and grays to create a subtle, understated look. For a fresher, more modern update, homeowners can contrast deep siding colors like russet reds, dark blues or grays, and darker greens with lighter trim and accents. Decorative siding panels like shingle- and shake-style patterns, or vertical board and batten sidings can highlight architectural details.
