5 Popular House Siding Colors—Which Would You Pick?

Nov 12, 2020

5 Popular Siding ColorsThere’s good news for homeowners who would prefer to see their abodes decked out in a dark, rich color but have traditionally selected their siding aesthetic based on the advice that lighter colors are more fade resistant. Technological advances in fade-resistant siding finishes have opened the door to a whole new world in exterior home design, allowing deep, vibrant hues to take centerstage without fear of a lackluster performance.

Although various shades of white continue to be the top choice for house siding throughout the United States, an increasing number of homeowners are choosing darker colors for their house trim. And many others are choosing to go bold altogether, with a shade like James Hardie’s Deep Ocean for their primary siding color and a much lighter hue, such as Arctic White, for their trim. This creates a striking yet tasteful contrast that’s sure to please the eye.

Trendy Colors That Can Go the Distance

Here are five popular siding colors that won’t go out of style as the years go by:

Cobble Stone

A recent addition to the James Hardie color palette, this is a taupe-based hue with warm undertones that makes an excellent alternative to plain-Jane beige. And, if you’d like to go a littler darker, you could opt for one of Cobble Stone’s cousins, Navajo Beige or Monterey Taupe.

Antique Cinnabar

Do you love the color red? This rich, dusky red tinged with brown might suit your fancy. It’s one of several new colors introduced recently by Mastic®, a leading brand of premium vinyl house siding.

Nothing Old About Gray

Gray is a popular choice for house siding, partly because it pairs well with so many other colors. James Hardie has jazzed up this perennial favorite with choices like Light Mist, which features the slightest hint of blue, and Gray Slate, which draws its strength from brown undertones.

Going Green With Flair

New twists on this earthy hue include Mountain Sage from James Hardie, a deep, rich shade, and Southern Cypress, a lighter alternative from Mastic. If you like the color green, these vibrant hues are worth considering for your home.

Inspired by Blue

Blue is another longtime top choice for house siding, but that doesn’t mean it has to be ho-hum. If you’re ready to go bold with your house color, consider Deep Brunswick from Mastic or Boothbay Blue from James Hardie.

Of course, there are many factors that will influence your choice of house siding color, including your home’s size, neighborhood setting, and architectural style.
