Home/Siding/Combining Siding Options: 3 Tips for Homeowners
While most homes use the same siding option throughout, it’s also possible to use different siding profiles and materials together, creating a more dynamic appearance for your property. Don’t know where to start? Here are some tips from siding and vinyl windows pro Woodbridge Home Exteriors.
1. Utilize Different Colors
A good exterior color palette is made up of at least three hues for accentuating the roof, walls and accents. If you are planning on using two siding options, you can use different colors for each to highlight them and showcase their distinctiveness.
A quick way to underscore contrast is to use one dark and one light hue, but you can also use two different shades from the same color to make sure your siding options stand out while still complementing each other, like energy-efficient windows and proper home insulation.
2. Play Around With Profiles
Even when in the same color, two different siding profiles will still create drama for your home, emphasizing the dramatic shift between the two options. A typical two-siding combination includes horizontal planks for the first floor and scallops or shakes on the second.
3. Harness Textures
You can also create contrast by taking advantage of different siding textures available to you. For example, when one siding option has a smooth finish, you can go with a more rugged appearance for the other.
