The American Craftsman architectural style gained popularity in the U.S. around the turn of the 20th Century. What makes a Craftsman home stand out is the attention to detail, with each part of the design carefully thought out. Only the best materials are used in the construction of American Craftsman homes.
Each American Craftsman home is uniquely designed according to the homeowner’s taste. If you own a Craftsman home and you’re looking to update the exterior, then you can start with choosing the right color schemes for your siding. Here are some popular choices.
1. Dark Gray (or Moss Green) and White
If your home has decorative stonework on the exterior, then a slate gray color scheme is a nice complement to the detailing. The same goes with moss green. The gentle saturation of the color can complement any stone detailing or even a garden area.
2. Light Blue and Warm Woods
If you’re planning on adding wood finishes during your home and kitchen remodeling, a lighter shade of blue can bring a softer style to the exterior siding of a Craftsman home. The color pairs well with warm wood finishes on your door and window edges, adding more detail to complete the look.
3. Navy Blue and White (or Cream)
A strikingly dark color such as navy paired with white or cream detailing can make any Craftsman home stand out. This color scheme combines the timeless Craftsman style with on-trend visuals, giving you the best of both worlds.
4. Black and Natural Wood
If you’re looking for another siding color option but still want your Craftsman home to look current, then black is a great option. Black may not be as architecturally authentic, but it remains a timeless choice when combined with natural wood finishes.
5. Cream, Blue and White
You can never go wrong when you choose cream siding for your Craftsman home. Try complementing the color with white finishes on your windows and even a blue door. The overall look is a classic Craftsman home with a charming farmhouse aesthetic.
