9. Find the best complementary colors for your house.
After you’ve picked your siding color, it’s time to pick your trim and accent colors. Along with your main siding color, you should select one or two more colors—one color for trim and, optionally, a second accent color for a door(s), shutters, decorative trim, and other elements. These complementary colors can help you have fun with your home and yet keep it looking trendy and appealing. Your trim and/or accent colors will look best and provide coordinating contrast if they are in the same color palette and either slightly lighter or darker than your main hue.
Think about the elements in your home. Which ones should remain unpainted, and which ones do you want to stand out if any? Don’t be afraid to branch out and paint your doors, shutters, or other elements a bolder color, such as a deep blue or green or even a muted purple, yellow, or brick red, in your color palette. Doing so will help your home have a pop of color and personality while staying true to the trending natural color palette.
The comforting thing about using current colors in exterior renovations is that the current trends tend to stay around for a while because of the relatively long-term commitment involved. These nine pointers may prove to be helpful to you in making your siding and color decisions.
