Trends are often changing quickly. That holds true across different industries. Are you curious what the current trend in exterior colors for residential homes is? Then this is the right blog for you! We are going to talk about the renaissance that bold exterior colors are seeing right now.
Dark colors are very popular for residential homes, both on the inside as well as the outside of the house. It is a resurgence of an older trend but with a modern twist. Darker exterior colors were originally due to the materials and methods used by builders.
The traditional building processes and techniques often resulted in dark exteriors. Those results now look classic to us. Especially the aesthetics of wood siding has lasted throughout the centuries and is still widely coveted today.
To make wood more resistant to pests, weather, and fire special methods were used while processing it. Those methods resulted in dark, even black exteriors. Even though those looks were grounded in practical reasons, the results outlasted the use of those methods.
Today, modern materials and techniques are used. This results in a large variety of siding styles and textures. You can have your siding be practically any color you like. In the last couple of decades many homes have used more muted and neutral colors.
However, the current trend is going back to bolder and darker colors. Thanks to this trend old traditions are being revived and reimagined. The use of darker colors for the exterior can results in striking building exteriors. It can do great things for the curb appeal of your home.
Bold colors can look elegant and modern. That also depends on what siding material you decide to use and how sleek the rest of your exterior is. When you use high-contrast colors for the rest of the house, bold and dark colors look amazing and any style of home.
