Matching Home Exterior Colors

Matching Home Exterior Colors

Exterior contractors can give you advice on the materials that can make your home more beautiful and add to its value. But since this is your home, the final decision on everything that’s installed on it should belong to you. After all, not every homeowner’s personality and style are the same.

When it comes to matching siding and trim colors, choose what you like instead of simply following someone else’s suggestions. However, it’s a good idea to find out more about great combinations to make your choice easier. Here are some tips to get you started:

Home Style

The style of your home has the biggest influence on your choice of colors. For a modern or contemporary style home, simplicity is the most prominent factor. This means your colors should be neutral and natural. For example, you could choose almond, khaki, white, or pearl grey. For bolder hues, try coffee, brown and yellow.

Classic looks are a traditional-style home essential. Country red, khaki, and almond are great together, and so are cactus, coffee, and Acadia.

A coastal-style home is a tribute to cottage living, so almond, maize, and yellow are good. You can also go with a classier white, maize, and granite. 

For suburban-style homes, simplicity and geometry are the buzzwords. Pearl grey, granite, and white are your best option, but you can also go with cedar, coffee, and cactus combinations.

Unusual Combos

Make it more personal by going with unusual color combinations for your trim, window frames, and siding. It might not be a safe choice, but if you’re daring, you’ll be glad you chose to be different. However, try to keep within a similar undertone. Your base color is the key to everything else. For example, red and white make a bold, striking combination that looks both attractive and daring. Khaki and yellow have a natural vibe when they’re together. There are plenty of combinations that you can use to separate your home from a boring backdrop.


Before deciding on a color combination, make sure to check out some swatches. It’s also a good idea to paint pieces of wood and look at them at different times of the day to give you a more solid idea. There are websites and apps with visualizers that allow you to pick colors or even upload pictures of your home so you can view them with the colors you’re planning to use. There’s no need to go blindly into this: color combinations work best when you review and study them several times before using them.

How Do You Start a Siding Replacement Project?

How Do You Start a Siding Replacement Project?

Starting a major home improvement project like a siding or roof replacement can be overwhelming. However, with proper planning, it doesn’t have to be. Make sure you’re not rushing your siding project so you’ll be happier with the results.

Get Inspired

Drive around your neighborhood, and take photos of home exteriors. You can also go online, and visit Pinterest and home improvement websites for design and color ideas. Make a Pinterest board of your preferred home styles and palettes.

Set a Budget

Obtain at least three estimates from three different contractors to get an idea of how much your project will cost. You can go online to find siding companies near you.

Make a Plan

Once you’ve made a budget, the next step is to create a plan. Set a timeline for when you want to accomplish your project. List the materials and labor required to finish your siding project within budget and on time.

Hire a Reputable Contractor

Don’t rush when looking for a contractor. Siding is a significant investment so you want to hire the best company for the project. You can ask for referrals from your friends, neighbors, and family. Once you have a list of potential contractors, ask for references you can call. Their past clients will let you know how well they do their job.

Prepare Your Home

Siding replacement will take over most of your yard or driveway. Make sure your home is ready before the construction begins. Move furniture away from the wall as well as hanging decor because the walls may rattle from exterior hammering.
