Many homeowners stick to one material or profile for their siding. While there’s nothing wrong with choosing a single style, your home can look more visually pleasing when you mix and match different styles. The right combination of siding materials and profiles will significantly increase your property’s curb appeal and overall value.
Read on for tips on how to combine different siding materials and profiles.
Mix and Match Profiles and Textures
Using two siding materials can set your home apart from the rest of your neighborhood. It’s essential to choose completely different profiles to accentuate the contrast between the materials. Your exterior can stand out more when you play with textures. For instance, you can select a smooth finish for one siding material and a rougher look for another.
Create an Appealing Color Palette
A well-designed home exterior has at least three colors to highlight the siding, roof, trim and other adornments. When using two siding materials, you should select two different shades on the walls. Make sure that the hues you use don’t look very similar to make the change between materials more distinct.
Consider the Rest of Your Home’s Exterior
Always consider the rest of your home’s exterior when replacing one of its elements. Consider siding colors that complement your roof, doors and windows. You can get ideas by driving around your neighborhood. Another place where you can get some inspiration is online, specifically websites like Houzz and Pinterest. Moreover, a reliable contractor will gladly help you choose the best siding material, profile and colors for your home.
