SIX RULES FOR CHOOSING THE RIGHT SIDING COLOR

It can be very stressful choosing the color for your New Orleans residence. It is a huge decision. You have to make an investment. Today we will share the rules that will guide you in selecting the right shade for your home.

CHOOSE a color that looks good in your neighborhood

The color palette of your neighborhood doesn't necessarily have to restrict you, but the location is everything. To find out what colors you love and what would look best on your street, we recommend taking a tour of the area. If it seems like your neighbors might be thinking of replacing siding, you can talk with them about the color options. If you have a more eclectic neighborhood, there are many options for siding colors.

MATCH THE ARCHITECTURE FOR YOUR HOME

The design of your home is also a key factor. If your home was built in a particular period of time, you might want to emulate that style. It is possible to add a modern touch by choosing a complementary color to the accent architectural elements. It is also important to think about the type or style of siding your home uses. You might be able to mix and match siding options to really make your home stand apart if you live in a modern house.

THINK ABOUT THE SIZE OF YOUR HOUSE & WHAT EMPHASIZED

While a color swatch in your home will give you an idea of what hue would look great, it is also useful to review these color rules.

  • The home can seem dark and overwhelming if it is large.
  • If a smaller home has light colors, it can lead to them being lost in the surrounding scenery.
  • It is common for light colors to be under-emphasized, while dark colors can draw focus to particular architectural elements.

These aren’t rules that can be broken, but they can be very helpful in making your home look great and increasing curb appeal.

CONSIDER WHAT COLOR YOU WANT FOR YOUR ROOF

It is easy to lose sight of one of the most important exterior elements of your home: your roof. The color of your roof can influence the color scheme of your home. Consider these guidelines when choosing siding colors to match your roof.

  • For lighter siding colors, dark roofing can be a nice accent.
  • A neutral roof can work well with many siding colors

It is important to consider all aspects of your roof before you decide to replace it. New Orleans Roofing Expert also offers roof services.

LOOK AT YOUR LANDSCAPING

Although landscaping will not necessarily make or destroy a paint color choice, it can be a big factor. It's not difficult to see siding as an independent component of the overall design. The appearance of your home's siding and roof are just a few factors. If your landscaping seems sterile and monochromatic, you might consider modern siding colors. If your home is more like a 1900s cottage, you might want to consider a whimsical or traditional color combination -- but with a modern twist.

THINK ABOUT THE YOUNG CLIMATE

The climate where you live can affect the feel and appearance of your home. A darker siding color could have an impact on the energy efficiency of your home. The sun can make any color shine brighter, however. You may also want to consider how your house looks during different seasons. Look at the paint in different time periods.

CONSIDER COMPLIMENTARY Colors

Complementary paints can play an important role in creating a cohesive design that matches the atmosphere of your neighborhood, the layout, and color of your landscaping, as well as the architectural elements of your house. It's okay to be creative and create your own unique look. If you are looking for colors to decorate your home, the best rule of thumb is to choose one color that complements it, and then choose one to two shades more light.
