Modernizing your home has always been something that most homeowners strive for. It’s never been terribly hard to keep up with the times and doing so allows you to boost your property value and make your neighbors proud or jealous, depending on who your neighbors are. But, trends and styles are always evolving so you need to stay informed on what’s hot and what’s not if you want to keep your home chic and fresh. 

Siding and roofing color combos are the easiest way to show the world you know what you’re doing in terms of home design and style, so here and a few color combos you can play with and see if they work for you. 

1. Brown Siding with White Shingles

If you’re going for an earthy, craftsman-like look, brown siding with white shingles is one way to do it in 2020. These roof and siding colors create a nice visual effect and the versatility of both colors allows you to blend in nicely with whatever the surrounding houses around you have going on as well.  There are also plenty of house siding materials to work with when it comes to brown sidings, like natural wood, metal siding with natural wood accents, fiber cement siding with wood accents, and more.

2. Black Shingles with Gold Siding

Black concrete shingles are a common feature you’ll find on most houses, but by pairing them with gold siding this year, you can effortlessly stay on top of your game in regards to style.  Gold and black is trending right now, and there are a variety of siding options that you can use to create this combo. Vinyl, cedar, natural hardwood, and even metal siding with an authentic wood-grain accent can all work great here. This color combo also pairs nicely with a variety of exterior door trim ideas.

3. Blue on Blue

Uniform color combos are seeing unprecedented popularity right now, and there’s never been a better time to introduce a cool color combo to your home. Blue helps to balance out the heat of summer, and blue-on-blue creates a really unique visual effect that’s somehow both cooling and bold. 

You’ll likely need to use vinyl shingles here as they are some of the most stylistically versatile and there aren’t a ton of shingle alternatives out there. Vinyl works well for the siding also, but you should be able to find some metal siding in the proper shade as well.
