Choosing the right siding color for your Craftsman home can be daunting. You want to pick a hue that will make your house stand out and add curb appeal and complement the rest of your neighborhood. In this post, S.I.S. Exterior Renovations, a certified Hardie board installation company, lists the best color schemes for craftsman homes.
Craftsman homes have unique characteristics that make them stand out from other styles of architecture. They often have low-pitched gable roofs, large front porches, exposed rafter tails and intricate detailing around windows and doors. To emphasize these details without detracting from their beauty, choose one of these three siding color schemes: natural earth tones, bright accents or dark colors.
Natural Earth Tones
Natural earth tones such as brownish-gray hues are an excellent choice for your exterior siding because they blend seamlessly with light and dark wood trim accents typically found in this type of architecture. These shades give off an understated yet elegant vibe.
Bright accent colors like blue or green are always suitable for Craftsman homes. These hues can provide enough contrast against darker woods, giving it a striking impression at first glance.
For those who aren’t afraid to be daringly stylish, opt for dark siding colors such as navy blue or black – great options if used sparingly, especially if paired with lighter trims. These hues can create visuals and make architectural details stand out.
