Incorporating wood shingles and reclaimed wood for interior walls have been trends in the past, so why not use this same concept for your siding? Using a rustic-styled siding material has become a popular trend among homeowners looking for a truly unique way to upgrade their home’s exterior. If you’re set on getting this look, then you’ll have to decide which siding material you want to invest in to achieve that winning curb appeal.
If you’re looking for a siding material that’s going to give you the highly sought after rustic look while saving you money on your energy bills, then fiber cement could be your best option. Manufactured to look like wood siding, fiber cement is also available in a broader range of colors, textures and sizes than traditional wood siding.
Although, this siding material may be more expensive than your traditional vinyl siding, but what it lacks in affordability, it more than makes up for in durability and longevity. Plus, fiber cement siding is available in a variety of colors, textures, and styles making it a great pick for any home. Plus, if you want the energy efficiency with a fresh new look, fiber cement can be crafted to imitate the look and texture of fieldstone, flagstone, or even brick.
All Natural Wood Planks
If you’re ready to go the all natural wood route, you have a few sliding design options to choose from. You can go with the traditional horizontal panel style, or elevate your home’s curb appeal by randomizing the width of your siding panels. Achieving that rustic look comes in so many different sizes and shapes, but the key is to stick with what you think accentuates your home without taking away from its natural beauty. Even if you opt for the more traditional siding placement, you can add an unique spin to the siding by using a custom stain or finish.
