There are many ways to enhance your home’s appearance and boost its curb appeal. This includes a variety of color combinations for your home siding. While some homes and architectures look their best with a light-colored siding, others look better when clad with a dark siding.
Dark Siding Color Combination Ideas
Dark siding colors come in a full range of hues, and many can be combined with other shades to create striking combinations. If you’ve been wondering just how good a dark siding color combination can look, check out these 14 design ideas:
1. Black and Redwood
To many people, the idea of black siding might seem a little too dark, but paired with a bright redwood, black siding can lend a contemporary look to many homes. The black siding has a lot of richness and depth to it that sets off the redwood and calls attention to the different lines of the architecture. The result is sleek, modern, and bold.
2. Black with Natural Wood
If you’re looking for something even more contemporary, consider a black or dark gray shade on architectural panels. They create smooth surfaces with fewer shadows for a sleeker appearance. This home utilizes natural wood shiplap siding, so the smooth surface remains, but the color variation adds some interest.
3. Gray, Red, and White
Gray has been one of the hottest colors in home design for the last several years, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Gray is a great color to use on a house facade because it pairs so beautifully with other shades. This home features a crisp white trim that stands out well against the gray, with a dark red accent color for the doors and shutters to help inject a little color into the monochromatic design.
4. All Black with Subtle White Trim
All black siding can make a very bold and dramatic statement on any home. Small homes like this one tend to look their best when a single color is used over the entirety, rather than breaking it up with different shades. The subtle white trim provides a contrast and stands out crisply against the dark siding.
5. Shades of Blue and White
This home has a classic color combination with a denim blue siding paired with an off white trim. The softer white looks good against the faded blue of the siding; a brighter white would have looked out of place against the more muted blue. To complete the look and bridge the two colors, a light blue door is used.
6. Dark Blue with Red Trim
Blue siding works well with a wide variety of different trim colors. This dark blue home punches things up with a bold red trim, taupe-colored shutters, and some white balustrades on the porch. The effect is very dramatic and makes the siding stand out, while the red trim also highlights the roofline of the properly beautifully.
7. Dark Red with White Trim
This farmhouse features a classic color combination of dark red siding with a crisp white trim. The siding itself is done in both horizontal lap and vertical board and batten to help break up the different sections and call attention to them. The bright white trim highlights the window and porch and helps them stand out from the rest of the facade.
8. Two-Tone Green with White
When using a dark colored siding, sometimes it helps to break it up a little with a lighter shade in some areas. This dark green home features a lighter green accent color that can be found on the upstairs siding, the shutters, and the garage door. Tying it all together is a soft white trim that complements both green shades.
9. Gray with Stone Veneer
Mixing textures and materials over the facade of the home is a great way to add some detail and attract a little extra attention. This home picks up the mid and dark gray tones from the stone veneer to feature on the lap siding and shingles. This creates a well pulled together design that’s also interesting to look at.
10. Dark Green with Copper and White Trim
This home has a very bold, yet classic color combination. It features a deep, forest green siding that’s been paired with a crisp white trim for contrast, but the colors don’t stop there. You can also find some copper standing seam roofing that picks up the color in the brick skirt. Black shutters and doors help bring the color scheme together and emphasize the entryways.
11. Blue, Gray, and White
Dark siding color combinations can also be subtle as well as dramatic. This home uses a mixture of blue and gray over the facade, mixing both colors on the same irregular cedar-look shingle. The gray is also extended around the foundation of the home, while a bright white trim and set of doors helps to tie everything together.
12. Black, White, and Wood
Using a dark siding doesn’t need to mean that you have to cover the entire facade with it. The majority of this property is done in white, with black and natural dark wood accents. The dark areas work well with the windows and pop against the white facade in a way that looks fresh and interesting, as opposed to using white trim on a darker facade.
13. Blue and White
This home has a classic design, with a fresh take on the color combination. The dark blue/gray siding is paired with a crisp white trim, while a dark red/brown door stands out as the focus. The trim helps ensure that all of the different architectural features stand out from the darker parts of the design so they aren’t overlooked in the color scheme.
14. Dark Wood Tones
It’s important not to overlook the power of a dark wood stain when considering dark siding color combinations. This home features subtly different shades of dark wood mixed together over its entirety. The decorative trim, door, and banister are slightly darker than the lap siding or shingles, creating dimension without contrast.
