Are you planning to update your home’s old exterior? It’s one of the first things people notice on a home, after all, so you’ll need to design it properly. Many professional siding and roofing contractors often recommend getting a mixed-texture exterior to enhance your home’s visual style and there are many combinations to choose from! To help you out, Lexington Blue® has shared these useful tips:
Choosing the Right Combination For Your Home
When it comes to mixing two different types of exteriors, we suggest going for one specific pattern on the first floor and a different one on the second floor. You can even have three types of exteriors and they can consist of a stone base profile, vinyl siding and wooden shakes/shingles.
One of the most popular exterior combinations is the traditional board-and-batten siding and a stone profile, which can either be cobblestone or fieldstone. Other smaller stone patterns such as ledgestone can also work for your exteriors, but this will depend on the profile combination you choose for your siding.
Select a Good Profile For Your Stone Material
Another aspect of your mixed-exterior project that should be considered is how your stone and siding profile will be applied. You’ll have several options for your stone placement, such as mosaic, stacked, classic, or cubist. As for your siding profile, a horizontal placement can be a good and safe choice, but a vertical placement can also enhance your home’s exterior design while also making your home look taller. You can discuss this with your siding and roof replacement contractor as well so that you’ll have a more informed decision of what you want for your new exterior design.
Look For the Perfect Color Combination
A mixed-exterior profile for your home won’t stand out as much if the siding and stone profile share the same color or texture. To add more visual impact, you can choose different hues of the same color and apply them as your secondary colors or accents for the trims. Stick to two or three hues and you’ll have a nice color palette that greatly enhances your mixed-exterior design.
