Two toned siding with board-n-batten, color help

brosherSeptember 10, 2012

Hello everyone, we've signed off on a contract for a semi-custom home in a development. The home calls for vinyl siding with a board and batten effect on top. We are not sure which way to go with the colors, but don't really want beige/yellow/white.

What do you all think of these options

Hate the two tone. Reminds me of saddle shoes. Unless you are going to choose MANY different colors, like on a Victorian, then the two colors does nothing but chop the house in two and make it look small. Having all siding the same material and color would be the best choice.

But if you have to choose to cut the house in two, because the builder insists, choose the same color, like in that last pic, but don't do board and batten. Do some type of shingle effect if you want to add a textural accent feature to the home. If you do board and batten, it should be for the whole home, not just the gable peaks.
