Choose Colors Based on Your Home’s Architecture


Whether your design calls for a traditional look with soft earth tones or a contemporary style with bright dramatic colors, engineered wood siding and trim can meet your design requirements and satisfy your preferences.

For a traditional type of home, go for colors that are comforting and classic such as:

  • Khaki/Almond/Granite Rustic

  • Sierra Rustic/Yellowstone/Almond 

  • Acadia Rustic/Yellowstone/Coffee

As for a modern/contemporary home, choose color combinations that lean towards simplicity and neutrality. Such examples include:

  • Granite Rustic/Almond/Khaki 

  • Commercial Brown/Yellowstone/Coffee 

  • Granite/Pearl Gray, White

Choose the Right Trim Colors for Your Siding

After selecting a suitable color for your siding, it’s time to choose a trim color that goes well with it. You can work with your hired general contractor and decide on which type of trim color goes best for your home. You can also do a bit of research and look online for homes that have similar color schemes to what you’re planning and take inspiration from there. Here are a few schemes to consider:

  • White Trim – This color goes well with any siding color, including white, blue, and green siding. 

  • Tan Trim – This color is made by mixing white into brown. This goes well with a tan or red siding and beige exterior trim, as it gives the home a nice and earthy appearance.
