If you’ve been considering the possibility of doing a major exterior home renovation, you’re not alone! As more and more Carolina homeowners explore the possibility of doing residential remodeling projects, articles like this become increasingly important. If you want to boost your home’s curb appeal in a modern way, it’s important to know what trends are currently out there.

Here, you’ll discover information about the most popular exterior home color trends of 2020. It’s important to remember that the trendier you decide to go with your upcoming North Carolina or South Carolina remodeling job, the more likely it is that you’ll want to redo it again relatively soon. Some homeowners don’t mind frequent remodeling work, but others would prefer to use trends that still have a timeless appeal. Only you know which camp you fall into!

White with a burst of color – Bright white homes are cheerful and classic. To make them look more contemporary, though, consider adding a bright pop of color. Some homeowners do this with a bold roof color, like royal blue or bright red. Others decide to invest in brightly colored shutters. However you choose to make your white house pop, this is a fun look that isn’t overly trendy.

Go to the dark side – Whether or not you’re a Star Wars fan, taking a trip to the dark side when it comes to picking a siding color is a great idea right now. More homeowners around the United States, including the Carolinas, are choosing bold, deep hues for the outsides of their houses. Navy is a fairly neutral choice that will still pack a punch visually. If you want to really make a statement, though, consider a black house!

Hang siding boards vertically – Not all exterior trends are specifically related to color. No matter what hue you choose for your siding, you can give the exterior of your house a unique look by hanging the boards vertically instead of the traditional horizontal direction. This can be done with just about any siding material, including vinyl, wood, and fiber cement. 

Focus on your porch – If you aren’t ready to commit to changing the siding on your whole house, one lesser-known trend is to focus just on the porch area. Hanging a different siding color just on the front wall of your home along the porch can serve as a form of exterior accent wall. Some homeowners ultimately decide to use the accent color on their entire home, while others like the look as-is. 

Consider a warm neutral – In the 1990s and early 2000s, warm neutral siding colors were immensely popular, particularly in subdivisions. Then, though, they fell out of vogue. Today, however, warm neutrals, like sandy tans and soft beiges, are coming back into style. Although the popularity of these shades rises and falls, they never really look dated, so they’re a great option for people who want a classic exterior.
