The exterior of your home is often the first thing people notice when they come to visit, and it can reveal a lot about your style and personality.

  1. Bold Colors To Stand Out

This year, homeowners are embracing bold and daring exterior color choices. Rather than sticking with traditional neutral tones, more people are opting for eye-catching colors that make their homes stand out. Some of the best siding colors 2023 has seen trending are bold color choices such as deep blues, rich greens, vibrant reds, and even purples. These colors can be used to draw attention to specific areas of the home, such as the front door, shutters, or trim.

  1. Dark Accents To Define

Another popular trend in home exterior color trends for 2023 is dark accents. This style involves using darker shades of traditional colors to accent the exterior of a home. Dark accent colors on home exteriors create a modern and sophisticated appearance. It adds depth and dimension to the overall design of the home, allowing it to stand out in the neighborhood. Dark accent colors also have a timeless quality to them, making them less likely to go out of style quickly. Furthermore, dark colors absorb light, making the home appear larger and more substantial.

  1. Mixing Profiles & Materials For Depth

Combine different materials and profiles to create an eye-catching look for the exterior of your home. Using a variety of profiles and materials can add interest and character to the design of your home, making it stand out in the neighborhood. Texture mixing also allows you to draw attention to different architectural features of your home. Using multiple textures can also add an extra layer of insulation to your home, helping to regulate the temperature all year.

  1. Wood Accents To Add Curb Appeal

There are numerous ways to incorporate wood accents into the exterior of your home. Natural wood shingles or clapboards are a popular choice for siding. Wood trim can also be used around windows, doors, and other architectural features. There are numerous advantages to using wood accents on the exterior of your home. For one thing, it can improve and distinguish your home's curb appeal. Furthermore, wood is a sustainable material that is simple to work with and can be tailored to your design preferences. Wood accents also help to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter by providing natural insulation.

  1. Monochromatic Color Schemes

Monochromatic color schemes involve using a single color or variations of a single color for the entire exterior of the home, resulting in a cohesive and modern appearance. A monochromatic color scheme on the exterior of a home can create a unified and polished appearance. It can also make the home appear larger because contrasting colors do not break up the color. Furthermore, using a monochromatic color scheme on the home's exterior can be less overwhelming than using multiple colors.



Homeowners should think about their personal style and preferences. You want to pick a trend that speaks to you and that you will enjoy living with for a long time. Some trends may require more adaptation to specific architectural styles or may clash with existing features. Focus on a trend that complements the style and personality of your home.
