Vinyl Siding Colors

How to Choose and Coordinate Vinyl Siding Colors

Your home’s exterior should show off your style just as much as the carefully decorated interior. Thankfully, Canton Aluminum’s wide array of vinyl siding colors makes it easy for you to express your personal taste. Current trends that mix and match hues or textures allow even more freedom when it comes to vinyl siding.

What’s Available?

When you think of vinyl siding, perhaps the classic combination of stately gray with a crisp white trim and black roofing springs to mind. However, there are hundreds of different colors available to boost your homes’ curb appeal.

If you’re having trouble deciding on a vinyl siding color, neutrals are an excellent choice for bases as well as shutters. Shades of tan, white, and brown also fall into this category. For something a bit bolder, you can choose from a range of red, green, and blue hues as well.

Color Science: Finding the Right Combo

When choosing vinyl siding colors for your home, take location and design into consideration. For example, lakefront houses often lean into the water theme with rich blues, while a ranch or bungalow surrounded by trees might look best with woodsy brown hues over stone veneers.

Additionally, cream or ivory trim and specialty vinyl siding in coordinated hues work beautifully to accent the unique architectural elements of split level, farmhouse, and Craftsman style houses.

The most important element to consider is balance. Vinyl siding often incorporates one vibrant hue or a rich, natural color alongside contrasting moldings and mantels. So, if you select bright berry siding, keep the trim neutral. On the flip side, a beige base goes equally well with dark or light shutters.

Some popular combos to draw inspiration from include:

  • Farmhouse red with white
  • Sage with navy shutters
  • Muted grays with charcoal borders and a lime door
  • Sand with moss green accessories
  • Linen with black windows

Additionally, some vinyl siding colors like forest green, hearthstone brown, marigold, and taupe have gained more popularity. Homeowners shouldn’t feel limited to a single hue, either. Select a base color as well as a complementary accent shade to highlight dormers or soffits and other architectural features of the house.

Playing with Texture

Mixing and matching surfaces is another prevailing trend for home exteriors. Using smooth vinyl siding above brick or stone adds depth and dimension. You might also consider vertical siding on the top story with horizontal shake or shingle siding on the porch and the rest of the ground floor for texture that’s a little more subtle.

At the end of the day, nearly any blend of shades and textures can work, whether you choose standard, insulated or specialty vinyl siding. It’s all about finding the right balance by pairing bold hues with coordinating trims or textures for a smart, perfectly tailored look for your home.
