We're Choosing Colors

We're getting together with the contractor tonight to decide what colors we want for our new siding and shingles, and garage door.  I was originally thinking I'd like to stay pretty close to the siding color we have now, but we've been walking every morning and watching what everyone else is doing, and now I'm wondering if we might want to change everything after all.  Some of these houses are really looking good. And some of them aren't so good.

We've also been playing with some pages online that let you choose colors and see what they'd look like on a house, but I think it's really hard to see what it's really going to look like until it's actually done - and then it's too late.  There are some houses in the neighborhood that would look a lot better if they'd just picked a slightly different color for the trim, or the shutters, or the roof.  These decisions are going to be with us for a long, long time.

Oh! The pressure! I hope our contractor has some really good samples and that the colors we choose will look good together - after they're on the house.

  1. I really like some of the pretty blue colors of siding that they have available these days! Very cheery colors. Don't you just love to see blue houses cheering up the neighborhood?!?!?!

  2. we did the same thing with the color chooser online. It worked well. How exciting for you to be doing this--I loved every minute of it.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
