Quick Tips For Mixing Exterior Materials
By combining different textures, patterns and colors of siding, you can make your home look more unique and boost its curb appeal. Also, replacing your siding will increase your exterior’s protection against water damage and your indoor comfort.
In this post, a trusted siding and roof installation expert shares ideas for mixed-texture exteriors.
Quick Guide For Mixing Exterior Materials
Mix Different Colors
A beautiful home exterior palette has at least three colors to emphasize the walls, roof and other accents. However, in a two-siding exterior design, you need to use contrasting colors to make the difference between materials more noticeable.
Play With Contrast
You can go for one dark and one light color to highlight contrast but you can also use two different shades of the same color to make each material more distinct. Whether it’s siding or roof replacement, don’t forget to pay attention to the small details of your home, like gutters, when choosing exterior colors.
Using different textures will make more visual impact than when there’s no variety in texture. You can use a smooth finish for one siding material and go for a rugged look on the other.
Two-siding home exteriors usually have horizontal planks on the first floor and shake or scallops on the second. Again, this emphasizes the difference between siding materials.
Consider These Ideas
Wood siding such as cedar shakes blend well with light-colored stonework. To create a crisp, classic look, combine charcoal vinyl siding with white shakes and black shutters. Also, horizontal brickwork with gray tones will complement vertical plank boards in a neutral color.
