Cedar is a popular choice for siding, but you can enhance your home with cedar even without replacing all of your siding. Even a small amount of cedar trim can enhance your home’s beauty whether your house uses siding or natural brick. Cedar is loved because it can provide your house with a natural look, especially when blended with stone or landscaping.
In the project below you’ll see some stained cedar used to accent the gable, back porch, and front porch of this home. The result is some great curbside appeal and adding the natural aesthetic of cedar to an otherwise monochromatic home.
Here is the gable before and after. In the after picture you can see that the brick has been painted white, the trim has been upgraded to James Hardie, and the cedar accents sit at the top of the gable to provide an accent.
