Gutters and siding both play a role in keeping your home protected from the elements. However, they also have a huge part in improving your home’s curb appeal. As both are available in various colors, you have a choice as to whether your gutters and siding colors should match or contrast.
Pritchett Bros talks about the merits of both choices in this blog post.
Although both your gutters and your siding are visible from the curb, siding is the more dominant feature. Most homeowners prefer to keep their gutters obscure. Whether because you don’t think your gutters should be decorative elements of your home. Or, because you don’t want them taking any of the attention away from the siding or the roof, you might choose a gutter color that matches your siding.
However, if you want to spice things up, you may choose to have contrasting colors instead. By being the total foil to your siding color, your gutters will pop and add a bit of visual allure to your home, possibly increasing your curb appeal. You can also choose a gutter color that’s more subdued than your siding color, serving only as a sort of outline to make the siding color even more noticeable.
But, choosing the colors should not be random. Only choose hues that could match either your trim or your roof to still make your gutters blend with your home. Normally, homeowners would choose to match their gutters to their trim to better accentuate the outline between your siding and roof, adding visual appeal while still maintaining your color scheme.
Another contrast option is to match your gutters with your roof’s color palette. This turns your gutters into a natural part of your roof rather an outline below. This option can be risky as it can break the balance of your home’s color scheme. Ask a home improvement contractor like us to help you decide which color option is best for your home.
