If 2018 is the year you’re finally going to replace your dated and fading siding, here are the latest in siding trends for 2018. It’s not only about the color but also about texture and pattern. Just because your home currently has standard lap siding doesn’t mean you can’t add some dimension and texture with your new siding.
Colors for 2018
If you look at various paint manufacturers they all announce their “color of the year” about this time. These aren’t just colors, they are color pallets and top color picks in many different shades. That’s because rarely do you want to have just one color in a room or on a home.
One thing you’ll notice is that the new neutral is shades of green. If a green house isn’t for you, consider starting with a neutral ivory which is always a popular exterior color for your home and using green as a pop of color in a dormer or as your trim. You’ll notice just how popular green is as a neutral when you look at whites, greys, and tans all with green hues.
Texture and Dimension
Old siding, especially vinyl lap siding is often smooth. To save money builders would only put one style of siding on a home. That makes a home look flat. Today’s siding trends include texture and dimension for an upscale style.
James Hardie siding comes in many different textures and styles. For example, HardiePlank® comes in both a smooth option and a cedar like texture. Both can be beaded or plane lap style siding. HardieShingle® gives your home a dimensional look with their Staggered Edge Panel. If that doesn’t suit your style, mix the straight edge panel with a complementary HardiePlank®. HardiePanel® is a great choice too and now comes in cedar, smooth, stucco, and their sierra finishes.
