A log cabin is the ideal way to bring rustic charm to your home, whether you are looking for that wild feeling year-round or just as a vacation getaway. The classic look of a log cabin instantly brings ease of mind and relaxation, even if you are just minutes away from a busy town. However, real wood logs are not accessible or practical for every home. TruLog offers steel log cabin siding that mimics the look of real logs without all the maintenance needs of wood.
Log Cabin Colors
What many don’t realize is that the typical log home look with brown logs is not your only option with steel log cabin siding. There are actually log home siding looks for every taste. Steel log siding comes in different colors so that the rustic look can be customized to your personal style.
Just because a log cabin has a primitive look does not mean it has to be boring. Check out these seven different color options for your log cabin siding.
1. Canyon Red
If you would like your log cabin to have a look with a more southwest style, the Canyon Red color is perfect for you, evoking the beautiful color of a canyon. The red hue also stands out in wooded landscapes, making your home pop against green and brown trees. This log cabin siding color is perfect for the cabin lover with a more unique style.
2. Autumn Brown
If a classic look that fits the woods is more your style, the Autumn Brown shade could be the right fit for your home. This rich brown color blends right in with nature and brings a traditional log look to steel siding. When you think of the idyllic log cabin, Autumn Brown is the shade that comes to mind.
For another traditional wood look, consider a Cedar shade that brings the beautiful tone of cedar wood to your log cabin siding. Cedar is a very sought after wood for siding, but is typically very expensive and requires a lot of maintenance.
