The aesthetics of your home plays a primary role in determining its curb appeal and resale value. When it is time for a roof replacement, exterior painting, or siding installation, it is important to coordinate the colors of the entire facade of your home to create a better impression. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
Understand Your Tones
The tone is an important factor in combining colors. It ultimately decides whether your exterior will look visually appealing or not. In color theory, colors such as brown, red, yellow, and orange evoke warmth, whereas colors such as white, blue, green, and violet evoke a cool feeling. Generally, if you have a warm-toned roof and warm-toned siding, for example, they will likely harmonize with one another. This is a simple standard that can help you identify two colors that will work together.
Subtle vs. Dramatic
Colors can also be used to create focal and peripheral points. Many siding contractors recommend deciding whether you want a subtle, understated appeal to your exterior or something more dramatic and eye-catching before starting an exterior improvement project. Selecting the correct shade can have a profound effect on the overall appearance of your home. Normally, the more contrast you add to the palette, the more impactful the final look will be. For example, a sky blue roof paired with a tan or wheat-colored siding achieves a sensational effect that catches attention in a normal neighborhood. Meanwhile, a beige siding with a brick red roof has a more subtle appearance but is still a wonderful combination of warm tones.
