Trending Engineered Wood Siding Colors for 2022

We believe that color has the power to transform the look of any project, and not to mention its influence on a person’s mood. We have seen, in the past year, a shift towards soothing neutrals as well as uplifting shades perhaps driven by the push for a new beginning after the year we have all had.

KWP’s Marketing Director and Trend/Product Consultant, Diana Sousa said “Natural colors and textures will be at the top of the list this upcoming year as more and more people are seeking cozy harmonious exterior for their home.”


At the top of the list of nature inspired trending color is Cactus. This green hue is softened by gray undertones adding muted notes that complement nature’s surroundings. Because Cactus is a neutral color, it provides a perfect backdrop for a darker exterior door, windows and shutters. Its subtlety creates a calm welcoming exterior yet prominent enough to set you apart from the rest.
