With all of the available options for your home’s materials and colors, it can be overwhelming to make stylistic choices for your home. Should your roof be metal? What color metal? Are you going to use brick or vinyl siding on your home? What would go best with your roof? What about your shutters and your door? What about your trim?

When it comes to picking colors for your home’s exterior, you want to make sure that all of the elements coordinate with one another for a smooth, cohesive look. For example, you probably don’t want an orange door with green shutters and purple vinyl siding.

The best way to go when choosing colors is to pick the color that will cover the largest area of your home: your siding or stone. Once you have this color picked out, you can then choose roof and shutter colors that will complement the dominant color of the house.

Vinyl siding is the most common material used to cover the exterior of the home. Neutral colors like gray, tan, and white typically go best because they are so versatile and don’t overpower your home’s exterior. Once you have picked out the color of your vinyl siding, you can then move on to the color of your roof.

Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material, and they come in a variety of colors. When choosing the color of your shingles, pick one that adds contrast to your home without clashing with your vinyl siding. For example, if you have white vinyl siding, a dark grey or black shingle could provide appropriate contrast, while a light tan or beige shingle might blend in with the rest of the home, making it all look like one big blog of color.

Once you’ve decided on the vinyl siding and shingle colors, you’ve made the two largest decisions when it comes to your home’s exterior. From there, you can choose shingles, trim, and doors that all coordinate with your home. It’s not uncommon for these three elements to all be the same color to provide a cohesive look for your home.
