Chicago Siding Tips to Boost Your Curb Appeal

Siding Tips to Boost your Curb Appeal

Sometimes a home’s façade can just look flat, more like a bland box than a dimensional dwelling. We found simple style tips that can bust through the boxy look and add volumes of interest to your exterior.

Think…an open porch, a larger entryway, a new front door, new wider plank siding, trim that makes the windows pop. All of these small updates can help you take your home’s look from boring to breathtaking.

Here are a few homes that traded in the their formerly flat fronts for visually interesting ones:

Midwest Makeover

Sure, this Midwest beauty went from beige to beige, but the new siding and trim make a huge difference. The previous vinyl siding was replaced with ColorPlus® HardiePlank® lap siding in Sandstone Beige, and the addition of the HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White truly changes the face of this home. The enlarged entryway and use of the HardiePanel® vertical siding in Woodstock Brown above the replaced natural wood front door make this home feel larger and more dimensional.

The More the Merrier

These Midwest homeowners opted for a selection of siding choices—straight edge HardieShingle® siding in Navajo Beige, HardiePanel vertical siding in Autumn Tan, and HardiePlank lap siding in Khaki Brown. The use of all of these sidings adds interest to a formerly flat-looking abode.

Transformed with Trim

This suburban home had a box-like look that was transformed with new siding and trim. The HardiePlank lap siding in Mountain Sage, the HardieShingle siding in Navajo Beige, and the HardieTrim boards in Arctic White all separate the home’s façade, complementing the simple architecture of the building. The added entryway and new door complete the look.
