One of the best parts about the US is how each part of this huge country is so distinctly different. From things like accents to the climate of the regions in which we live–we are full of diversity. This goes from home styles as well. As a siding company, we know that westerners in the US, for example, tend to choose very different siding styles than in easterners. And, even within the western tastes, there are differences. Since we live here in the west in Loveland, Colorado, we have decided to take a look at the most popular styles in these western regions.
Popular Siding Styles in The Western US
West Coast Siding Styles: Homes here tend to be mostly modern and ranch. California dominates this area and is considered a “more mature market”. There are a lot of remodels in this area since housing is expensive so you will often find revamped historic homes.
Siding Styles in the Pacific Northwest
The pacific northwest tends toward modern homes with siding colors that are ocean-inspired– like silvers, greys, and beiges. You are also to see a lot of tall peaks and big windows to take in the gorgeous view. Tiny homes are an emerging trend in these areas as communities look to be more eco-friendly and build smaller homes.
Siding Styles in the Rocky Mountain Region
Just like the beautiful Rocky Mountains that run entirely down Colorado–our homes here tend to have angles and interesting windows. This means siding here often has a modern feel and cool browns, blues and grey to mimic the modern terrain.
Siding Styles in the Southwest Region
The southwest region of the US is dry and hot so homes here tend to have flat roofs and be lower and sprawling in most places. The siding style here is simple to accommodate a one-level structure. When it comes to color, clay reds, warm browns, and greens are popular to compliment the desert surroundings.
