Remember the last time you saw shake and board & batten on the same home? Of course you do. That’s because mixing siding styles is a great way to break up repetition and add visual interest. So it’s no surprise that a particularly compelling trend is to incorporate different siding styles, directions and colors on the same exterior.

Switch up and intensify No matter what the home style, incorporating a bold-hued clapboard in the lower section and a neutral-shaded shake in the gables lets each style, texture and color give relief to the other. Think of it as a cure for siding monotony. Conversely, you can use a bolder board & batten to highlight architectural elements in upper exterior sections and pair with a neutral color in lower areas. Or create a compelling style contrast by mixing clapboard with accent siding that delivers impactful dimension like Atlas StoneTM Composite Stone Panels. Add a contemporary change of direction by pairing shake with Royal® Board & Batten.
