“We actually had two additions put on our home,” Maggie said. The East Bridgewater homeowner recently married, blending her two children with her husband’s three. “Obviously we needed some extra bedroom space, so that led to the second story addition. And then the dining room bump out makes suppertime so much more pleasant for everyone.”
Choosing Siding Colors: More of the Same or Something Different?
“Our siding contractor was really very helpful in terms of selecting the actual siding as well as the color,” Maggie said. “I hadn’t really been aware of the different levels of quality in the vinyl siding market – so something that might seem like a really good price isn’t, whereas a price that’s a little bit more can give you a siding that lasts much longer.”
When choosing siding colors for an addition, you can choose to have the addition sided in the same color as the rest of the house. Or you may, if you prefer, have the addition sided in a different color, for design purposes.
“We definitely took a best of both worlds approach with color,” Maggie said. “The second story addition, we wanted that to look like it had always been part of the home. I like the cohesive monotone facade. We had vinyl siding installed to match the addition with the house. The whole upstairs is white.
But then for the bump out, we wanted to draw attention to it. We want it to be kind of a new focal point of the home. So we went with a blue that is just phenomenal. Having the vinyl siding installed made the house look finished and really put together. I love it.”
