    Mixing exterior textures is a great way of adding visual interest and character to your home. Residential siding and roof replacement contractors will often suggest that you mix textures to increase your home’s curb appeal as well as its overall value. But in order for it to work, it has to be done correctly. To help you achieve this, here are a few tips.

    Use Multiple Colors

    As a rule of thumb, use at least three hues to accentuate your exterior walls and your roof as well as any accents. You should only deviate from this formula if you are using two siding materials. In a two-siding exterior scheme, you should use distinct colors to highlight the material change.

    When choosing which colors to use, your residential roofing or siding contractor might advise you to use one light color and one dark color to underscore the contrast. If you want to go for an elegant, monochromatic color scheme, you can use two different shades of the same color.

    Play With the Siding Profiles

    Designers often combine several types and styles of siding to create a more interesting look. Nowadays, homeowners are spoiled for choice when it comes to siding styles and textures. Use this to your advantage. Nothing emphasizes the change in siding material more than a shift in the cut. For instance, you can use horizontal siding on the ground level of your home and scallops on the second level to create a striking effect.
