There are dozens of ways for you to customize the appearance of your home. Opal Exteriors wants to help you express yourself through your siding. We work with James Hardie Siding to bring you an array of blues, grays, whites, and beiges for you to experiment with until you find your style.

How, though, can you choose your Jame Hardie siding color as easily as possible? Let’s break down some pre-installation tips that can leave you delighted with the look of your home.

Take Inspiration From Your Neighborhood

If you’re not sure what color of siding you’re interested in, take a look at the world and homes around you. What houses in your neighborhood catch your eye? How do your neighbors use color to draw attention to their homes’ best features?

You can draw ideas for a siding color palette from pre-existing homes as well as the color wheel before customizing your home’s siding accordingly.

Choose Siding That Complements Your Architecture

You can also choose your James Hardie siding color based on the colors you know may complement your home’s architectural style. Both the James Hardie Hardie Architectural Collection and Statement Collection Colors for James Hardie Siding are designed with certain styles of homes in mind.

For example, colonial homes tend to look best when sided in lighter colors, though you can add an accent to draw an onlooker’s attention. If you live in an adobe home or ranch house, your home may look best when sided in brown or warm red siding. It’s hard to go wrong with grays and gray-toned reds, too, especially if you live in a newly-constructed, contemporary home.

You can even invest in Tudor, Stucco, or Naperville siding through James Hardie to achieve a certain look for your house.

Establish Your Preferred Palette

Once you’ve gathered your inspiration, viewed relevant samples, and explored the colors that suit your architecture, it’s time to commit to a color palette. Even if you’re not sure what you want the whole of your palette to look like, you can choose a color that speaks to you and build off of that color accordingly.

You can specifically work with Opal Exteriors’ team to determine what trims, secondary colors, and stonework will best complement the siding colors you want to integrate into your home’s overall look. Once you’ve selected these tones, you can begin working with our experts to install your siding, trim, and additional features.
