At KWP, we believe that a homeowner should love the home they are in. That being said, there are many steps required in order to reach that state of ultimate happiness: a very important one being the choice of appropriate wood siding colors. Psychology has proven that colors have a direct impact on the mood of the space, so we understand how important it is to inform ourselves and choose wisely!

A timeless shade reminiscent of tempestuous sea.
Green is considered as a restful color for the eye. It is a refreshing, yet cheerful color all at once and, like blue, green also has a very calming effect.
