When you’re freshening up your home, the outside can be just as impactful as the inside. In fact, having the right siding color and style can significantly boost its curb appeal, in addition to preventing heat loss and air loss.

Want to revamp your facade? Here are some current siding trends in 2021 to be on the lookout for.

Organic Hues

Many homeowners and builders are really embracing earthy, organic hues in 2021. Think grays, blues, and greens combined with off-white and other cool earth tones that connect the home to nature. 


Neutral colors can really showcase the subtle architectural details of your home or its beautiful landscape. They represent tranquility and optimism. Think of a toasty sand hue for a warmer neutral or a grey for a cool neutral. 

Contrasting Colors

Although you could just choose a single neutral shade for your entire home, some contrasting colors will definitely make a big impact on your home’s exterior. If you’re looking to refresh your home exterior, go dramatic with a dark shade for the siding and a lighter trim in a beige, gray or white. 

Eco-Friendly Siding

More and more people are trying to reduce their carbon footprint, especially here in the Portland OR area, opting for more green alternatives. If you want to be environmentally conscious with your siding, take note of its recyclability, its energy efficiency, and whether it was sourced locally or not. We specialize in James Hardie fiber cement siding, which is no doubt one of the best environmentally friendly siding options available today. It resembles wood, but is more long-lasting and durable.

Mix & Match Siding

Another popular trend homeowners will love is using different materials and widths for their siding. This less-traditional look will not only add texture, but will also make your home more eye-catching. View our vertical siding for some great-looking examples.
