Aside from your windows and doors, both your trim and siding play a significant role in the overall aesthetic appeal of your home. After all, they are among the first things people see when they pass by your home. That said, it’s only fair to make sure the colors of your trim and siding must suit one another. For some homeowners, however, this can be somewhat tricky.
In this post, S.I.S. Exterior Renovations shares ideas to help you achieve color harmony for your trim and siding.
Using the Color Wheel
A color wheel is a tool you can use to find color combinations that are well-balanced and visually appealing. When using the color wheel, you have two general options: analogous and complementary colors. To limit contrast and add a calm, serene feel to your exterior, pick analogous colors for your trim and exterior siding. If you want colors that provide the most contrast, however, complementary colors are the way to go.
Choosing Between Warm and Cool Colors
Another method you can use is separating color choices between warm and cool colors. Consider choosing warm colors such as reds, oranges, and yellows if you want something that evokes warmth and excitement. For a more relaxing and calming effect, though, consider picking cooler colors like blues, purples, and greens.
