Every so often, we find ourselves sucked into home design magazines. Looking at renovations, many of us sit there thinking, “I could attempt this myself.”  However, as your local siding contractor, Corriveau Painting is here to help when it comes to enhancing your home’s curb appeal.  While completely changing your siding material may be an option, there is also benefits to merely changing the color.  Recently, we found an article from Better Homes and Gardens discussing questions you should ask when you’re choosing siding colors.  We’ve pulled together a few of their top questions to give you a condensed list of the article.


Take A Look Around

If you’re considering switching up the color of your home, then you’ve probably been noticing the color of other houses in your area.  While making a list of eye-catching homes is a great start, it’s also important to notice the aesthetic of your own neighborhood.   Choosing a color that meets your expectations is equally as important to choosing a color that blends in well with the overall tone of your community.


Consider Your Architecture

Regardless of your personal preferences, the architecture should dominate the selection of colors.  For instance, a classic Colonial home is typically painted in a single color; such as white.  However, older homes may have unusual accents which can provide you a subtle way to incorporate the additional colors you hoped for.  On the other hand, if your home style is more laid back or traditional, your color palette and artistic freedom will have a greater range of acceptable options.


Size Does Matter

Colors can be misleading.  For instance, consider a dark hunter green color on a smaller sized home.  The color can add sophistication and eye-grabbing curb appeal for potential buyers.  However, the same color on a large home could be overpowering, leaving a gloomy feeling for those passing by.  It’s always good to keep in mind that dark colors will draw in attention while lighter colors help to de-emphasize features.


Don’t Forget Your Roof

Often overlooked, your roof should be another consideration when choosing a color for your home.  Because your roof will most likely outlive your siding, you want to consider the flow between the two.  A darker roof may work best with lighter colors.  Whereas a neutral roofing material opens the door for a broader range of color schemes.




When choosing the best color for your home, contacting a professional painter in NH is always the safest bet.  Experts can help walk you through the many considerations that should be taken into account, ensuring you’ll make a decision that you won’t regret.  For more information on how Corriveau Contracting can increase your home value in an aesthetically pleasing way, contact us today at (603) 880-9988.
