This color plays well with others. It can be paired with just about anything. Pair Night Gray with dark colors for a sleek and modern look, or use light colors for a more traditional feel. Here’s an inspiration graphic with a few ideas for color parings that we love…

Night Gray Siding Options

Night Gray is available in the midwest region. It’s a James Hardie ColorPlus® Technology finish that can be order for lap siding, shingle, vertical panel, and trim. It also comes in a variety of James Hardie siding textures including Smooth, Select Cedarmill, Smooth, Stucco, and Rustic Grain. If Night Gray isn’t available in your region, then color matching with paint is a possibility. The ColorPlus pre-finished option is the best choice because of it’s outstanding durability. James Hardie offers a 15 year warranty on the ColorPlus siding finish. It doesn’t fade, crack, or peel the way paint will. It’s also very low-maintenance and doesn’t need re-painting.

Playing with Color

At Opal we love combining Night Gray into our exterior designs. Here’s a few fun combos:

  1. Night Gray, Arctic White, Woodland Cream 
    Use Night Gray on the lower half of the home and combine with Arctic White Trim and Woodland Cream on the upper half. The Woodland Cream acts like a night light on the Night Gray. This would look really lovely on traditional style homes including Cape Cod and Victorian. A sweet mix!James Hardie Woodland Cream, Arctic White, and Night Gray siding color scheme
  2. Night Gray, Pearl Gray, Rich Espresso
    Go dark and modern by pairing Night Gray with other dark colors. Combine Night Gray and Rich Espresso with a little Pearl Gray in between for contrast. It’s like having a warm cup of coffee on a cool foggy night. So satisfying!James Hardie Night Gray, Pearl Gray, and Rich Espresso siding color scheme
  3. Deep Ocean, Countrylane Red, Night Gray
    Make things interesting with bold colors. This festive mix is sure to bring out the artistic side. It will look lovely on craftsman style homes, and on homes with lots of angles and gables. Play around with different color placements and accenting. This one’s an attention grabber!James Hardie Deep Ocean, Countrylane Red, and Night Gray siding color scheme
