5 Most Popular Siding Colours for 2019

Thinking of changing up your siding colour? It could be one of the best upgrades you’ll make to your home. Siding makes up the bulk of your home exterior, and is one of the biggest drivers of value and curb appeal. You want to make sure your siding colour is modern and on trend, especially if you’re planning to put your house up for sale any time soon.

Whether you’re looking to paint your siding or are in the market to replace your siding all together, take a look at Gentek’s World of Colour to follow along this list of the most popular siding colours for 2019!

1. Pacific Blue to Marine Dusk

Shades of blue have blown up in the design world over the past few years, but this year, shades like “Pacific Blue” and “Marine Dusk” are the ones to look out for. Blue is not exactly neutral, so if you’re not looking to play it safe, it may not be for you, but many homeowners today desire more dynamic colours for their home exteriors.

Pacific Blue” and “Marine Dusk” evoke feelings of relaxation, serenity and peace, which is why many homeowners are drawn to them. Couple your blue siding with white trim to give your home tranquil seaside vibes.

2. Gray (In Any Medium to Dark Shade)

You can’t go wrong when it comes to using any medium to dark shade of gray for your siding. Whether you opt for “Storm” or our new “Chesapeake Gray” or “Hudson Slate”, gray is a neutral yet trendy colour that never goes out of style. If you love the idea of using a neutral for your siding, but would rather stay away from creams and tans, gray is the perfect option for you!

3. Forest Green to Meadow Fern

Natural hues like “Forest Green” and “Meadow Fern” are also trending in 2019, especially for homes in the suburbs or ones surrounded by lots of nature. These greens bring out your home’s natural, lush surroundings, not to mention, the vibrancy of a deep forest green can really bring a property to life! Note that darker greens also tend to look really good on older, traditional style homes that often look best painted in deeper colours.

4. Taylor Red to Majestic Brick

Deep russet reds like Gentek’s “Taylor Red” and “Majestic Brick” are also having a moment. Perfect for a timeless, country-style home, a gorgeous deep red siding adds a ton of curb appeal and will make your home a total stand out!

5. Incorporating Textures

When it comes to siding, colour isn’t the only option you have to think about. This year, incorporating textures into your siding continues to be one of the biggest trends. Think options such as Grayne shingles that create natural depth and sharp, crisp edges to give your home the natural cedar charm, or SerenyStone, an awesome alternative to masonry, without all the maintenance and upkeep of real stone.

If you’re ready to give your siding an upgrade, use one of these 5 colours or textures to completely transform your home!


Foolproof Colours for Your Home Exterior

Everyone knows the feeling of seeing a house that makes them swoon. A major part of what catches your eye is the colours the homeowners chose. Choosing the right colours for your home exterior can be a fun (yet challenging) task. The colour of your siding, front door, shutters and trim should compliment each other, coming together to create a work of art! Today’s exterior trends are all about keeping it classic and sophisticated with a pop of personality. So how exactly do you choose the perfect colours for your exterior? Let’s dig in!

Stunning Siding

Since your siding covers the majority of your house, and is also the biggest investment, it’s the ideal starting point for colour choice. Your siding needs to work with everything from your landscaping to your chimney colour to your neighbours’ exterior hues, so do some research before diving in. Neutrals like grays and whites are often your best bet for siding, as well as brick-like colours. Some great options from Gentek’s World of Colour would be Dover Gray, Storm, Taylor Red, White and Sage.

Pretty Trim

Next up, it’s time to choose your trim colour. Your trim should contrast yet compliment your siding. Some homeowners opt to go with the same colour trim as their siding, but we would advise against that. Using the same, or a very similar colour can make your house look flat and unexciting. On the other hand, you don’t want it to look too out-there either. Choose a trim colour that’s a few shades lighter than your siding, but still in the same colour family. Consider colours like Snow White, Bright White or Pearl. One exception is if you choose to go with white siding. In that case it’s okay to use the same colour for the trim, or go with a darker colour like Slate for contrast!

Striking Accents

Finally, you get to choose your accent colours! Feel free to have a little more fun with the colours you choose for your door and shutters. Reds, blues and blacks are all the rage right now, giving your house a nice pop of personality among the timelessness of your siding and trim. Your accent colors are much easier (and more affordable) to change in a few years, so if you’re worried about getting tired of them or them going out of trend, don’t be! You can always switch them up down the road! Right now, the go-to accent colours for a front door are hues like Coastal Blue, Burgundy, Black, Midnight Surf and Rockwell Blue.

Choosing the perfect colours for your home exterior is a breeze with Gentek’s World of Colour! So what are you waiting for?
