Tips on Mixing and Matching Vinyl Siding Color Combinations

Doing an exterior home makeover is a complex process and requires careful planning. The colors you choose are an expression of your home’s architecture, character, and surroundings. Some people simply do not know what color vinyl siding they want or do not know how to pair vinyl siding color combinations.

Here are a few tips to help you make the right color choices:

Choose the colors that you like as opposed to those that are suggested to you

You are the one who is going to live with the color of your home exterior, and when you drive up to it, you have to love it and know you’ve made the right decision. You can get ideas and inspiration from Kaycan’s Houzz or Pinterest channels or other houses in your neighborhood, but the ultimate choice has to be yours. It’s all about what you want!

Choose colors based on the style of your home

Whether your designs call for a traditional look with soft earth tones or a contemporary style with bright dramatic colors, vinyl siding and trim can meet your design requirements and satisfy a range of tastes.  You can explore different housing styles, or use our exterior house color visualizer – Home Designer 2.0 to upload a photo of your home and try out various color combinations.

Always use swatches before making your final decision on mixing and matching colors.

We all know that color swatches have different tones depending on the time of day and different lighting situations. Before committing to colors, it is important to hold up the color swatches at different times during the day, so that whatever the lighting condition, you will be content with your color choices.

Don’t be afraid to make unusual choices when it comes to siding color combinations

Being different isn’t a bad thing. Keep in mind that it is probably a good idea to stick to similar undertones. Any color combination will look good as long as the base color is similar. For example, using Mocha and Pecan together will work well, since they both have an earthy tone.
