There are so many different colours on the Hardie palette it’s hard to know where to start. The colour will be there for a long time unless you decide to over paint it. Therefore it’s best not to make an overstatement. It’s also a good idea to decide the basic colour scheme in your mind first. Then when you scan through Hardie Board colour schemes on the internet you can refine your theme.
Six Important Fundamentals for Hardie Board Colour Schemes
1… If you decide on a combination of a strong colour and a soft tint, use the strong one on outside corners and around windows and doors. This will considerably reduce the cost of changing it and you can achieve that so much faster too.
2… Respect the architectural language of your home. A Victorian oldie has details that are fun to pick out. Whereas a ranch style modern could look better in one or two colours. Stay with light tints if the building is small so it looks more expansive.
3… Think of the neighbourhood. If there is a common theme to the development by all means be subtly different. But avoid clashing with next door. You want to blend in because someday you may decide to sell and buyers like harmony.
4… You can’t change the colour of your roof easily. The same applies to the paving. You may already have the colour fundamentals in place. The best Hardie Board colour schemes respect what is already there, and create a cohesive impression.
5… Use the language of colours to your advantage. Tints on the blue / green side of the colour wheel are restful, whereas yellows and reds are livelier. Choose tones in harmony with your personality. When all is said and done your home mirrors you.
6… Brighten up a simple Hardie Board colour scheme with touches that sparkle. Changing the gutter colour can create a new accent line. However a smart new front door could achieve wonders at less cost. Speak to us about a special deal.
