One of the latest trends in exterior remodeling involves using different types of siding to spice up a home’s façade or draw attention to interesting architectural features, such as gables, dormers, and entranceways. If you’ve been admiring the sophisticated appearance of homes using this technique, you should know that there are practically an infinite number of ways to achieve it. For example, you can mix and match different siding styles, choosing lap siding as your primary style and then adding cedar shakes or board and batten siding to the gables. You can choose one dominant color for most of the siding on your home, then clad selected areas with siding that’s a slightly different shade or even a completely different color to add contrast. You can also give your home a touch of distinction with stucco or stone veneer accents.
Although there’s no limit to the ways you can mix and match siding to pep up your exterior home décor, there are plenty of ways to unintentionally stray from the coherent, blended effect you undoubtedly want. For instance, you’ll want to consider the size, shape, and architectural style of your home when choosing your siding and color variations. In fact, even your home’s location – such as in a suburban neighborhood or a more rural setting – can have a bearing on whether your mixed siding selections result in a tasteful, blended effect or a house the neighbors would rather not live next to.
