Over the years, we have seen the popularity of rustic home design on the rise. Homeowners are craving the charming look of rustic wood siding but without all the hassle. That’s when they choose KWP Engineered Wood Siding when they want a low maintenance alternative to wood.

Going Rustic with your Siding

When we think “rustic” we often think of something “rural or country”, however, The Rustic Collection brings a timeless, natural beauty to any architectural style.  With a beautiful color contrast between two-tones, your home will be sure to be the showstopper in the neighbourhood.

Bonus! Our unique painting process plays a huge role in providing the authentic look of wood without any of the upkeep.

Shake it up with Hampton Shakes!

Cedar shingles are a popular option for creating a rustic exterior on a home. However, they also deemed to be high maintenance requiring regular cleaning and surface treatments.  KWP has a low maintenance option with the authentic look of cedar shake. Nothing says classic like the stunning details in KWP’s Hampton Shakes.  Your home’s curb appeal is greatly enhanced with their rustic charm, delivering a stunning and inviting exterior.

Check out these tips to incorporate them into your rustic home project this year!

  • Mostly used as a decorative element, Shakes are usually on the gables of a home but can also be seen as the main cladding selection. Try our online home exterior design tool!
  • In design, we love mixing colors and textures (our Hampton Shakes offer both elements!) Choosing them in a contrasting color will give your home a unique identity, making it a stand out in the neighborhood.
  • Reflecting the warmth conveyed by cedar shingles we are partial to our Sierra, Cedar and Pearl Gray.
  • Also, think of adding trims in contrasting colors such as a white to bring it all to life.

Let’s not forget the texture aspect of our Hampton Shakes. Don’t be afraid of incorporating them with other existing materials, be it vinyl, wood, or even brick. Intermingling different textures will show your architectural flair.
