Top Exterior Trends to Inspire Your 2019 Home Projects

Give your home’s exterior a makeover for 2019

Is your home in need of a curb appeal boost this year? With longer days and fair weather, spring and summer are the perfect seasons to make changes to your home’s exterior. But before you research the right home exterior professionals for your projects, you have to decide what you want. Do some research about the latest home exterior trends, but ultimately find something that speaks to your home. Here are a few of our favorites:

Darker Colors

For a long time, the standard when it came to house colors was lighter colors. White, off-white, light blues, greens, and yellows were the norm. You’ll still see plenty of lighter houses, but darker, bolder colors are becoming more prevalent in 2019. You may see a house with deep cobalt, hunter green, or burgundy siding. These colors tend to draw the eye, especially when combined with the right trim and accents, making a bigger impact. Sometimes even the color of your roof can complement to the deeper color of your siding.

Black Accent

White and lighter colored trim can make for a strong contrast, especially if you use darker colored siding. However, black accents are starting to gain momentum in the home exterior market this year. Black is sleek, stately, and unexpected, which like darker siding is sure to draw the eye. These accents can be found in shutters, trim, window frames, or a secondary siding color. You can explore a few different options and get creative with this option.

The Look of Wood

Wood has a classic look that we all love…but it can be high maintenance. It needs constant preservation to be protected from pests like termites and environmental issues like rot, swelling, and mold. When it comes to siding, fiber cement is one of the most popular options on the market right now, because it can have the look of wood but it’s much more durable and lower maintenance. Vinyl siding, too, can be done with a woodgrain texture. If you choose to go with authentic wood, such as wood shakes, you may need them to be pressure treated so as to better resist fire.
