Vinyl siding, which dates back to the year 1872, is a durable alternative to paint and can increase the value and external durability of your home. Vinyl siding has come a long way since it was first marketed commercially in the 1930s; now it is available in a range of styles and colors which can reflect the unique preferences and personalities of the homeowner.
White and Cream
According to a review published by Reliable Remodeler, the most popular of all vinyl siding colors on the market today is still white. White, which comes in a variety of hues such as off white, antique white and cream, is one of the oldest of color options in commercially marketed vinyl siding. Many people choose white and other lighter colors because lighter shades do not clash with the color scheme on most houses; it also makes your home appear larger. Deeper shades such as beiges are also popular and offer the similar effect.
Yellows and Browns
Just behind white in the highest selling and most popular colors of vinyl siding are shades of yellows and browns. Lighter shades of yellow, much like white, lend the look of an increased space and can coordinate well with other color schemes, particularly when bright shades of white are used as the color choice to trim windows and for garage doors. Browns that come in a shades such as sand offer neutrality and work well with most any color trim. Darker shades of brown are often used on larger homes when a greater size appearance is not an issue; these do best with lighter colored trim around windows. An added benefit of darker brown-colored siding is that darker colors tend to hide dirt more than do lighter shades.
Grays and Blues
Varying shades of grays and blues are next in poplarity. Gray tends to be the most popular choice out of the two when used on smaller houses, as it seems to increase the home's size. Gray siding comes in a variety of shades, ranging from slate grays to lighter shades such as silver and frost. Blues also come in a broad range of hues from lighter pastel shades to deeper shades such as navy and midnight. Consumers who choose darker shades of blue or deep shades of gray often use brighter shades of white or beige on trim to add definition and a more modern edge.
