How You Should Choose Your Exterior Colors

Have you been thinking about switching the look of the exterior of your home?  Perhaps you’re thinking it’s time for a new color scheme. The best place to start is installing new siding in a different color than what you’ve got now.  Our Minneapolis siding company has lots of options for you to choose from, and here are some things you can keep in mind as you’re evaluating your color choices.  

When it comes to changing the colors on the outside of your home when you’re ordering new siding, you have to consider a few different aspects. The colors of the home you live in can bring about a lot of feelings and excitement when it is changed. Not only that, but changing the color of your home can change the entire look of it as a whole. Even if the change that you make is subtle, it can bring on a whole new look and feel to the outside of the home.

There are many considerations that you should keep in mind before changing the outside color of your home, so make sure to check out all of the available options and really think about which one might look the best on the outside of your house.

Please keep in mind that many developed housing communities only have a set number of acceptable color schemes that homeowners are able to use when switching out siding. You should check with the association prior to changing the colors if you live within one of these communities.


Siding Colors: Never Neglect What You Like 

Never worry about what other people are going to think or what they like. Make sure to keep your likes in mind when it comes to changing the color of the home. You want to make sure that you get a good feeling once the job is done when looking at the colors that have come together.


Use Outside Influences 

Look at the many colors around the neighborhood that the other homes are. You might want to somewhat match with them, while still being different. This allows you to semi-blend in, without being overly sticking out there.


Check into the Foliage Around the Home

Some colors go great with outside foliage, others might look off. Consider the greens, blues, reds and yellows throughout your yard to find something that works the best with your taste and what you want out of your home.

Changing the color of your siding can have a huge impact. Learn how a simple color change can impact the entire house.
