What are the top trends for siding and trim right now?

Homeowners are typically choosing two to three colors per house for main siding, accent color, and trim color with multiple siding textures like siding, shakes, board, and batten. Color trends we continue to see are dark colors, blues, and gray tones. The newest color trends are going toward more natural looks/tones.

How do you see siding changing in the next couple of years?

We are releasing a new siding collection, Back to Nature, later this spring that is unlike anything else out there. Featuring seven colors inspired by nature and that look like real woods. Stay connected with us on social media to stay tuned on availability.

What is a key tip or hack when it comes to picking out siding?

When choosing color there are a few things to consider. The style and era of your home—Be mindful of the color tones in any stone, roofing, and decking with siding, and look at your home’s landscaping/location. For example, heavily wooded/shaded areas will make colors appear darker if there isn’t a lot of direct light. If you are struggling with choosing color, we are here to help! Visit diamondkotesiding.com to use our Home Visualizer. You can upload a drawing or photo of your home to test different color options. Not sure what colors go together?
