Some popular colors for cedar vinyl siding include white, cream and light gray. For example, in a neighborhood in Connecticut, 40 percent of the homes may have white siding, as noted by Federio & Sons. Although white and neutral tones for vinyl siding seem to be very popular, there are other factors to consider when choosing a color for new home siding.
Important factors to consider include region of the country where home is located, its age and architecture and the general colors of vinyl siding of most homes found in a neighborhood. For example, there are certain regional styles and color schemes found in areas, such as the Midwest, Northeast and South. While Earth tones can be vinyl siding colors that are popular in the Midwest, desert color schemes may be more prevalent in the Southwest, as noted by Federio & Sons.
When choosing cedar vinyl color for a home, its architecture and age should also be considered. The different architecture or design of homes can include Colonial, Victorian, bungalow, ranch or Cape Cod. The color of vinyl siding should complement the home's age, history and design. To find an appropriate color scheme for a home, homeowners can use software, such as ColorCoach or CertainTeed ColorView.
Although there are bolder colors for vinyl siding, such as blue, red, brown, green and yellow, these may not be appropriate in all residential areas, especially if there is a neighborhood association that has color restrictions for its homes. It may also be wise to avoid dark brown, yellow and green vinyl siding, as noted by Arch City Homes.
