Some houses on the block are head turners. You know the ones you can’t keep your eyes off of—they just speak to you. We compiled a few of our favorite Midwest-style homes with James Hardie® siding and trim that just seem to make us stare a little longer than we should. 

We get that even though color is critical, there’s more to siding and trim than just the hue. There’s also the texture, width and style. And when you’re admiring a house from the curb, it can be tricky to take in all of these details without staring for a little too long. 

That’s why we zoomed in for you—here’s a from-the-curb view and a closer peak at the details that take a close-up eye to examine.

This suburban beauty may induce stares. When taking in this home clad in Evening Blue HardiePlank® lap siding, paired with a tin roof, crisp Arctic White HardieTrim® boards and impressive landscaping, you may have to remind yourself to blink. Both bold hues are part of the ColorPlus® Technology palette, so the siding and trim will stay vibrant longer with less maintenance compared to field-applied paint.

When you get the vantage point of a few feet away, the details are illuminated. From this perspective, you can see that the HardiePlank lap siding in the home’s gables are a thinner width than the siding below it. The HardieTrim boards highlight the home’s architectural elements and make the blue siding color look vivid.

From afar, this 1920’s bungalow stands out in HardiePlank lap siding in Iron Gray with HardieTrim boards in Arctic White. The updated gray hue makes this older quaint home feel updated.

Up close, you can really see the smooth texture of the HardiePlank lap siding. The crisp white trim around the windows draws attention to them, and we love the modern style address numbers, which adds character.
