As we head into the second half of 2020, we’re looking at what’s hot and what’s not this year in the world of siding trends. While most of the world was under lockdown for the beginning of spring, as soon as guidelines started loosening, exterior renovations went right ahead. Siding is one of, if not, the key exterior feature of your home. It covers most of your home’s surface, protects it, and elevates your curb appeal. Like all design trends, siding trends change over the years. Check out the most popular 2020 siding trends so far this year!
1. Bold Siding Colours
In 2020, homeowners are adding a dose of personality to their homes with bold siding colours. Gorgeous, rich shades like brick red, midnight blue and cast iron grey add instant curb appeal, making your exterior pop. Dark on dark combinations are also growing in popularity. Try pairing any dark, bold siding colour with black trim or a dark wood door and shutters to get the look.
2. Smooth and Sleek Finishes
When it comes to exteriors, homeowners are loving a smooth, sleek finish. It gives your home a clean modern aesthetic and enhances your curb appeal whether you’re planning to stay put or put your home up for sale. A smooth finish lends an air of refinement to your home, and offers beauty and a seamless finish to your exterior.
3. Mixed Materials
Mixing materials is another big exterior trend for 2020. Think: wood accents with industrial-looking siding and blending modern and rustic styles. Combining materials enhances charm and personality, and creates a one-of-a-kind exterior. The sleek look of engineered wood siding is a perfect backdrop for accents such as marble, stone or metal pieces, and you can’t go wrong with mixing earthy features with rustic, wood-like textures.
4. Exterior Details
Once you’ve chosen your siding colour, finish and material, it’s time to enhance your exterior with details and accessories. Consider ways to accentuate your siding, such as outdoor lights, creative house numbers, and front door hardware. Charming, historic details such as peaks and columns are also making a comeback and are a great complement to modern siding.
5. Sustainable Choices
Homeowners are increasingly opting for sustainable siding choices. Not only are they better for the environment and create a more eco-friendly home, but they typically require less maintenance and are more durable than other siding products. Vinyl siding is friendlier on the environment than many other siding products, making it an excellent choice for today and generations to come.
