Choosing Siding Paint Colors

The siding covers the biggest area of your home and will, therefore, cost the most to paint. You should decide your siding color first and match the trim and accent colors afterward. When deciding the color for your siding, it is important to keep in mind other fixed factors you have to work with, such as a red brick chimney. You want to choose a color that complements the chimney rather than clashes with it. The most popular color picks for siding are gray-blues, neutral beiges, and brick-brown. These colors are soft and neutral enough for you to have more options with your accenting colors.

Trimming Your Paint

When choosing the color for your trim, keep in mind that it should be lighter than the color you choose for your siding. This makes your home look and feel dynamic. If you paint the trim the same color as the siding, your home will appear flat. Choosing the same color as your siding is alright, as long as you go a few shades lighter. Whites, creams, and light grays are the most popular option for trims.

Accenting the Fun

Accent colors are where the fun comes in. This is where you can really show off your personality without overwhelming your neighbors. Your front door and shutters are the most common places for accent colors, but you can really place them wherever you like. Different ranges of blues, browns and blacks are very popular for accent colors, but you can go as wild as you wish.
