What color scheme is right for my home?
This is a very common question many of our customers ask when trying to decide on colors for the exterior of their new home. With the amount of color choices now available for roofing, siding, soffit, fascia and trims, making what you feel is “the right choice” can become quite overwhelming.
While there is no rule of thumb when making color selections, a few questions should be asked which will help guide your decision making process. Some of these could include:
- What are some color combinations that complement the style of my home?
- Do I want my home to “stand out in the crowd” or blend with the existing neighborhood theme?
- Will I love the color selection I make today, 10 years from now?
- What are the most popular color combinations you see in newly built subdivisions?
If you have narrowed down your color selections, you may want to get an idea of what it would look like on your home before making your final decision. There are a few options to help with this. Many of our exterior finish suppliers offer a “visualizer” on their website to give customers a better idea of what a similar style of home may look like with various color combinations. Once you have an idea of your colors, try to see samples of these colors in person - computer and mobile screens are sometimes different than actual colors.
If you follow any or all of the suggestions above, you can be confident that the choice you make will be an educated one.
