Sure, this Midwest beauty went from beige to beige, but the new siding and trim make a huge difference. The previous vinyl siding was replaced with ColorPlus® HardiePlank® lap siding in Sandstone Beige, and the addition of the HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White truly changes the face of this home. The enlarged entryway and use of the HardiePanel® vertical siding in Woodstock Brown above the replaced natural wood front door make this home feel larger and more dimensional.
The More the Merrier
These Midwest homeowners opted for a selection of siding choices—straight edge HardieShingle® siding in Navajo Beige, HardiePanel vertical siding in Autumn Tan, and HardiePlank lap siding in Khaki Brown. The use of all of these sidings adds interest to a formerly flat-looking abode.

The added entryway and new door complete the look.
