Clad your Home in a Bold Neutral

Clad your Home in a Bold Neutral

Neutral siding colors rule the suburbs—they’re safe and sophisticated at the same time. When selecting your home’s exterior hue, it’s important to look around and play off your surroundings. Are other homes on the block neutral? Is your home’s architecture more classic in style? It’s important to connect your siding and trim selections with the look of your Midwest home and neighborhood.

 

The color of fresh linen, desert sand or a beached seashell—Sail Cloth can look slightly different from home to home, but always seems to evoke a clean, soothing vibe.

 

When you choose James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology , you can feel secure knowing your siding color will stay vibrant longer with less maintenance. ColorPlus Technology helps resist damaging UV rays that can eventually dull the finish over time.

 

Here are a few homes clad in James Hardie’s Sail Cloth, along with style tips when designing with this color:

This home is clad in HardiePlank® lap siding in Sail Cloth with HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White. We like that the color of the shutters matches the darker roof, all with an inviting neutral backdrop.

Style tip: For a classic look, go neutral with your siding color and boost curb appeal with classic black shutters.

 

Subtle Sail Cloth Trim

This beauty boasts HardiePlank lap siding in Mountain Sage and HardiePanel® vertical siding in Autumn Tan with HardieTrim boards in Sail Cloth. Even with the use of multiple color choices and siding styles, this home comes across interesting, not overwhelming.
