Bold Meets Bright: A Siding Color Combo with Pop

Jan 16, 2016

james-hardie-home-sidingGray doesn’t go hand-in-hand with a cloudy disposition. In fact, home design experts now call on grays for the new, go-to neutral. And when paired with a crisp, cool white, you’re in for a dose of contemporary elegance.
James Hardie’s HardiePlank® lap siding in Iron Gray is a dark and luxurious hue, making it an ideal bold choice for a main siding color, especially when teamed up with Arctic White HardieTrim® boards. The contrast between the two colors provides a clean pop that’ll turn heads.
And you can feel confident knowing that your Iron Gray siding resists fading. James Hardie’s ColorPlus® Technology is engineered with multiple coats of finish on its siding and trim. All of which means your siding colors will stay vibrant longer.
Cape Cod Classic: HardiePlank lap siding in Iron Gray with Arctic White HardieTrim boards makes this home have a traditional-meets-stylish look. The black light fixtures add to a more modern feel, and the green landscape softens up the exterior space.
Ranch Re-do: New siding on a simple ranch home can instantly boost curb appeal. This home is sided in HardiePlank lap siding in Iron Gray with Arctic White HardieTrim boards, and the matching crisp white fence ties the colors together for a look that says simple with a statement.
Modern Victorian: This Victorian looks refreshed with HardiePlank lap siding in Iron Gray with Arctic White HardieTrim boards. The bright red door adds personality, and the black windows and light fixtures provide a contemporary design on a classic architectural style.
If Iron Gray isn’t your favorite shade in the family, James Hardie has you covered. Four new shades of gray were recently added to the ColorPlus technology collection of colors. Now, you can opt for any shade from light to dark with Pearl Gray, Gray Slate, Aged Pewter and Night Gray, all of which pair nicely with Arctic White HardieTrim boards.
