The dark and beautiful roof

Most homes use fresh colors. However, those who beg to be different rather choose a dark color for the roof of the house. The key is to mix and match certain elements and colors to accentuate the whole façade of the house. No matter what material was used (well, wood is a good suggestion!), with the perfect combination, your house can exhibit the unique and eccentric style that you want.

Roof tiles for the minimalist

Having soft colored roof tiles can show off a minimalist design. It also contributes to a cooler and more relaxing atmosphere. It's still pretty good, not to be overlooked by fresh colored roof tiles.
