Exterior Color Trends and Designs
Color trends come and go but it’s likely you will be remaining in your home for a while so if you are making a big change, take a little time to think about it. Remember, you can browse a Marling showroom and look at new colors and some of the “re-invented” tried and true colors for siding, doors, shutters, exterior trim, and shingles.

We are constantly asked by customers - whether they are picking out siding colors or cabinet colors – what is “in.” Numerous times each year, the Pantone colors are announced. Currently, rose quartz and serenity are on top. You can try to keep up to date with the newest trends, but we stress that you pick what YOU want. You are the one living with the cabinets, siding, or shingles, so don't settle for something underwhelming. Browse the showrooms at our locations and look at your color options – we’ll help you color your world.
