Fresh Color Palettes for a Brown Roof

Choosing the exterior elements of your home in the proper order can help you get the aesthetic you want for your home. Every exterior element brings color that impacts the whole look of the home, but how do you determine which colors work well together?

We’ve developed carefully curated color palettes that will make it easy to choose perfect complements for your roof, stone and brick. And if you want to explore more siding color combinations, visit the LP® SmartSide® Home Visualizer, our siding visualizer tool.

This home features the same light cream color on the siding, garage and trim, while dark brown complements it on the windows, gutters, door and shutters.

If you have chosen a brown roof for your home, it may be dark, medium, or light brown. Brown can have undertones of red, orange, or yellow. You'll also find that some browns are slightly grayed - like weathered wood.

Brown roofs work well with:

  • Warm stone colors – variations on cream, tan, brown, orange, and yellow
  • Most brick colors – from red and orange to yellow and brown
  • Warm cream, beige, or dark chocolate brown trim (NOT white)
  • Muted rather than fresh colors
  • Warm siding colors, like beige, yellow, green, red and muted versions of other colors

shinglesCheck out some exterior house siding color ideas in these color sets for brown roofs below.
