Don’t feel trapped to only one siding color choice.

Most design experts would agree that subtle contrasts are aesthetically pleasing. Using a two or three tone color scheme can set your home apart in the neighborhood. 

Where can you use color variation? Here are two suggestions:

Mixed Medium Variation

Using multiple siding profiles together (such as HardiePlank, HardieShingle, and HardiePanel) will add some texture and style to any home. Pairing a unique color to those profiles is an even more pronounced way to elevate the detail and beauty of a house’s exterior.


The gables of your home offer an excellent opportunity for contrasting colors. Their natural triangular figure parts from the mostly modular/rectangular shape of a home. Furthering their contrast by using color variation will add some individuality to a homescape.
