So, the garage is going up quickly, and one of the decisions we need to make (soon) is the siding color. This is a big decision, friends.
Do I need to tell you that? Of course not. You get me.
In this house, we’ll be keeping the aluminum siding on the house. It’s just in too good of shape to scrap. The plan is to paint it in the spring. So, we need to choose vinyl siding that I will match when I paint the house.
When we chose a color for our current home, it was a no-brainer. I loved the sage siding we chose, Ryan loved the sage siding we chose. It was different than anything else in the ‘hood. (We wanted it to stand out.) No.brainer. It took very little time to agree.
And, to be honest, I kind of wanted to use the same sage color on this house. Why mess with something we love? Make it kind of our signature. But, Ryan questioned using the same color. And, he was right. We can’t just make every house exactly the same.
I want this house to be special and unique. So that means a new color
And, that brings me to the big decision. I definitely don’t like the current yellowish color.
The foundation will be white (eventually).
The porch floor, shutters and stair treads will be navy (Naval by Sherwin Williams).
I wanted grey, but the roof is pretty new and already camel/brown. So, the colors have been narrowed down to:
(I know this looks close to the same color it is. But, it’s more off-white/taupe and less yellow.)
(All are standard siding colors at our local hardware store of choice – Menards.)
What do you think?
(And as a disclaimer, I reserve the right to choose something completely different. As if I needed to tell you that. But, I still want to know what you think.)
