When you upgrade your home with new gutters, there are two important things you need to consider – functionality and appearance. Typically, seamless gutters with gutter protection are your best bet for functionality, but color choices may be less obvious. In fact, there are several trains of thought when it comes to selecting gutter colors for your home. Some people prefer gutters that match their trim or fascia, while others prefer gutters that match their siding.

Gutter and Siding Color

Normally, it’s ideal to have your gutters blend in subtly and seamlessly with your home’s siding. Gutters almost always run in front of siding, which means they have the best chance of going unnoticed if they are a similar color. Sometimes, however, you may not be able to find an exact color match with your siding, or, you may just feel that blending in with your siding is boring or unattractive. In these cases, it may be best to select gutter colors that match your fascia or trim.

Gutter and Trim Color

Gutter systems that blend with your fascia or trim are only slightly less subtle than ones that blend with siding. It is likely that your gutters will run up against your trim at some point and, because you aren’t adding in a contrasting color, there is little to no design risk with this choice. Matching your gutters with your trim is also an ideal choice if you have brick or stone siding, as it will be almost impossible to find a gutter color that matches perfectly.
