How to Choose a Siding Color

how to choose a siding color

Choosing the right color for your home is difficult, but you’ll have plenty of options with vinyl siding.

Vinyl siding is fantastic for many homeowners as it provides strength, versatility and easy maintenance. One of the best parts of choosing the right vinyl siding for you is choosing the siding color. Here are some tips to help guide you to the perfect vinyl siding color for your home.

What Does Your Neighborhood Look Like?

Take a drive around your neighborhood and see what other houses do with their siding. What do you like about some homes? What don’t you like about some homes? Don’t just pay attention to your own area, also take into account homes that look similar to yours on the outside. The right vinyl siding color should be a combination of your style and the style of your neighborhood.

How Big is Your Home?

Vinyl siding swatches can be a little misleading since they are so small. Many people love a color in the small little piece but are overwhelmed with it when it covers the entire siding of a home. Dark colors can be especially risky for mid and large-sized homes. Instead of looking distinctive, they can appear gloomy and intimidating. Light colors may wash out a small home instead of making them stand out from the surrounding landscape.

What Color is Your Roof?

Remember that your vinyl siding is a complement to your roof, so the two colors should look good side by side. Most roofs last 20-30 years, so make sure that your vinyl siding is planned around your roof and not planned around the roof you want after this one. If you have a darker roof, use a lighter siding scheme to match. If your roof is a more neutral color, you have many more different vinyl siding color options that will look great. No matter what, make sure that you don’t pick too bright or wild of a hue if you are planning on selling your home in the near future.
