How to Mix and Match Vinyl Siding and Stone

House With Stone Facing

Mixing and matching materials can bring out the beauty of your home’s exterior. If you’re looking to add some extra curb appeal, consider pairing natural stone with the beautiful, sustainable vinyl found at New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc. We are happy to coordinate with your stone contractor for the installation of stone and siding.  Stone has several unique properties and installing it along your home’s exterior can add a natural allure to the overall aesthetic. Here, we describe how homeowners can go about creating a color scheme that incorporates stone and vinyl siding together.

Select Your Stone

Stone can be the perfect textural or architectural element needed to add character to your home. The right material can set your home apart from others on the block and draw attention to some of the most impressive aspects of your exterior, such as:

  • Main entrance
  • Front porch
  • Gables
  • Dormers
  • Columns
  • Other noteworthy areas

When you’re beginning to coordinate a siding and stone combination, you can start by choosing your siding first. This allows you to pick out the base from which the rest of the color scheme will develop. Oftentimes, stonework offers multiple shades that add depth to your home’s exterior and will complement an array of siding colors.

Decide on a Color Scheme

Once you’ve picked out the stone, consider the color and style of vinyl siding you’d like to incorporate into your new house or remodel. Depending on your vision, you can streamline the process with a single color or use more:

  • Single color: If you have gray stone, gray siding can be just the thing you need to complete the overall look. Choosing a monochromatic design is simple, yet the stone texture provides a high level of visual interest.
  • Dual color: Select two shades that complement each other, like dark vinyl with light-colored stone. This pair affords a high level of contrast, which adds eye-catching appeal.
  • Triple color: Use three main colors that coordinate well. A primary color and some complementary tones provide another high-contrast combination that allows you to balance the overall design.

While planning, mix and match colors to find an ideal combination that suits your home and landscape best. Having samples of each material and color in hand can help make your decision simpler and put into perspective how your choices may coordinate with your home’s trim, doors, shutters, and accents.

Choose Your Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding can be produced in virtually any color. What’s more, the low-maintenance properties help ensure your exterior will retain its pristine appearance over time. As a homeowner with an innovative design in mind, several vinyl siding brands are available, such as:
