Various elements like the roof, your siding, and windows make up your home’s exterior. Finding the right balance between your home’s exterior elements, in terms of color, texture, and material can help you achieve a harmonious exterior. Let Classic Remodeling, the premier roofing company, explain more:
Harmony is usually described as sameness or the belonging of one thing to a group. This can be achieved through the repetition of design elements. For instance, if your home features a bold red roof, you can use that same color or a similar shade on your window’s exterior trim. This repetition highlights your windows without making them the focal point of your home. Choosing a more muted shade for your siding creates a contrast that’s pleasing to the eyes.
Unity, on the other hand, is when the elements combine to make a complete whole. This is achieved when every element works together to create a balanced look. Texture can add interest by changing how the light hits the surface. It can appear light or dark, even when used with the same color. Too much texture, however, is tiring to look at. When choosing a new roof, if your siding already features a textured surface, it’s best to opt for a simpler surface like metal, to give your eyes a place to rest.
You can also use different materials to complement each other. Pairing tile roofing with fiber cement siding means the focus would be on the roof because of the tile’s unique texture. You can create harmony by choosing a bold color for your siding and a more neutral shade for your roof. Avoid using the same material for two large areas like the roof and siding, as it results in a bland look.
