Siding Design Trends for 2017

Homeowners are looking for siding design trends that add value and curb appeal to their home, while incorporating a sense of individuality. Building a new home gives homeowners to ability and option to choose exactly what they want.  When building a new home isn’t an option, replacing the siding on your current home gives you a great opportunity to update and change the look of your home.  Here are the top siding trends that homeowners are using to add curb appeal:

Dark Hues

Rich, dark colors, particularly dark gray, is the top choice for exterior siding colors. Siding manufacturers have developed color-saturated finishes that resist fading and the colors are more vibrant. Many Milwaukee area homeowners are choosing to do the entire exterior in these dark colors.

Contrasting Color

Contrast is huge in exterior design right now.  Dark siding with bright white trim is a trend we expect to see continue for 2017.  It creates a visual pop that draws your eye to different design elements of the home, and works with many different architectural styles.

Multiple Textures

This trend is being used to maximize accent areas such as gables, porches, and dormers.  Board and batten siding, large panels, and shakes are commonly used in these areas to give the home better scale and proportion, and a more appealing aesthetic.  It is very common to use several different styles of siding on a home, which makes it easy to add character and interest to the exterior of your home.

Low Maintenance

Homeowners want to enjoy their homes instead of spending time maintaining them.  There are many siding products on the market that are durable, resist rotting, cracking, and splitting, and come pre-finished in the color of your choice.  These products come in a variety of styles and prices, making it easy to design the perfect exterior that fits your lifestyle and budget.

If you need a little help with designs and ideas, there are many different ways to get inspiration.  Attending your local Parade of Homes or Tour of Remodeled Homes is an excellent way to see these trends in person.   Pinterest and Houzz are also excellent resources for siding design trends and have a large variety of styles and ideas to fit every taste and budget.
