Redesigning an entryway

Question:

Bernadine asks: I need some help with the entryway of my house…the front of the house is too flat and I need some architectural interest. I need to keep the green trim on my house, and vinyl siding for the side and back of the house, but I can look at different material/siding for the front of the house. Maybe stone on the bottom and shake siding at the top? The door colour? And maybe window boxes?

Answer:

If you are looking to add some texture or flair to the front of your home, I would definitely suggest a faux stone product on the bottom, going as high as the bottom of the windows. You could go with a product like Versetta Stone’s Ledgestone profile in the Terra Rosa colour. The tones in this stone will blend well with the green trim colour and would add the flair to the front of your home you desire. As for the portion above the stone, you might want to consider a vertical siding in one of the tones in the Stone, like Pebble, or Grey or Sage. These colours would also look good with the green trim colour and the vertical siding will give the illusion of increased height of the home.
