2) Mixing Different Siding Types

A popular trend that has emerged recently is the move to textural contrast, combining multiple types of textures of materials. Mixing different materials such as aluminum and stone adds more depth and interest to a building’s exterior and can break up sections that might look too plain. Natural stone and timber elements or stained wood paneling mixed with the smooth lines and textures of aluminum siding have made their way outdoors to create exteriors sporting a modern look while retaining an element of warmth.
