Color not only affects how you feel about your home, but it can affect the value of your home as well. There is no better way to make a fabulous first impression than by choosing the perfect siding color.
When choosing siding colors, it's important to take the architecture style of you home into consideration. Some styles, like Victorian, may benefit from a palette of 2-3 colors; while others, like modern farmhouses really come to life with one color plus a trim accent. The architectural style isn't the only important consideration though. You will want to choose colors that you love and truly represent the personalities of those that live inside. After all, your siding color has the power to transform not only the look of your home but how you feel about it too.
