If your home’s siding is a more conventional hue, you can punch up your exterior with a bold door color, siding color or a collection of colors.
When a neutral doesn’t excite you, explore other options.
Selecting vivid and complementary shades can take some time, but if you go with James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology, you’ll have an array of well-curated palettes with finishes that resist fading and last longer than a typical paint job. ColorPlus Technology is specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, which means vibrant colors with less maintenance compared to field-applied paint.
Go for a bright door. The neutral James Hardie® siding and trim colors may suggest more of a conservative-looking colonial, but the home’s bold blue front door adds the kind of interest that turn heads. Complementary colors are an ideal choice for when you want something to stand out, and creamy neutrals paired with a cobalt blue fall in the complementary color family. The blue hue looks polished and inviting next to the creamy trim, and the wreath adds an inviting touch that seems to say, “Come on in.”
Perk up your palette. With the ColorPlus palette, it’s easy to blend siding styles and colors and still retain a cohesive look. This home merges HardiePlank lap siding in Evening Blue with straight edge HardieShingle® siding in Khaki Brown and HardieTrim boards in Navajo Beige. The dark shutter hue and the tin awnings add even more interest to this personality-packed stunner.
