More homeowners are choosing home trim shades similar to their home siding color. The monochromatic look—where shades, tints and tones used on the home’s exterior are all in the same hue—is an interesting concept, and a simple way to add style to a space.
It also makes selecting siding and trim colors a breeze, since you really only have to pick one. From there, you can use lighter or darker shades of the same color and easily achieve a harmony in the hues.
But what color family is calling your name? A bold red or orange, a calm blue or a chic neutral. Browse the James Hardie ColorPlus® Technology palette for families of colors that inspire you. Once you’ve narrowed in on your hue, you can feel secure knowing that James Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology provides color that resists fading and lasts longer than a typical paint job or vinyl siding.
