In the first installment of our two-part blog, we shared some tips on how to narrow down your best siding colors. Now, we want to highlight the best qualities of different color families by James Hardie®. On paper, it offers an overwhelming number of ColorPlus® finishes, but you can easily explore its entire spectrum of options, chiefly according to color temperature.
Based on the kind of home exterior feel you want to pull off, choose from these ColorPlus palettes for your pre-finished James Hardie siding products:
Greens are generally the friendliest to the eye. Evoking freshness, yellowish greens stand for new growth while deeper ones signify maturity. If you ask Twin Cities Siding Professionals, green-shaded siding is your safest bet if you have lots of leafy trees.
When combined with white trim, dark grays, greens and blues, dark colors lend drama to the home exterior design. However, choosing a dark shade for siding installation might only work well if you live in a neighborhood full of old houses.
Neutral shades, especially grays, are the most forgiving because they can easily mesh with most colors. They’re popular in the suburbs, especially in homes of contemporary style.
Grayish reds, golden yellows and deep oranges are head-turners. These shades never fail to grab the attention because they’re the most visible from afar. If you want to have an autumn-inspired home exterior, you can’t go wrong with warm hues.
Calming yet classy, shades of blue are refreshing. Considering how popular blues with gray undertones are, they hardly go out of style anywhere.
Any siding contractor would attest that whites and soft pastels set off lush landscaping. To avoid having boring and characterless exterior walls, complement a bright shade with bold hues to give your siding some personality.
