Your home exterior is the first thing you see when you arrive at your home and crucial for the first impression your home makes on visitors. Your home exterior leaves a lasting impression and creates curb appeal that can bring pride in your property and increased value. This is why designing a home exterior that is stylish and striking can be an excellent project to undertake. If your home exteriors need an update, or you’re in the process of designing a new custom home, consider the following creative designs that can add a beautiful design element to your home.
Home exteriors that combine materials and textures create a home look that is varied and creates dimension. For example, incorporating horizontal siding with vertical siding in roof gables can add a subtle but dynamic design to your home.
The modern farmhouse style has been a growing trend as it offers a classic, comforting look to any home. Features like black window frames, vertical siding, and shiplap are all standard in the modern farmhouse style. This look can be a great way to create a home with the authentic, homey feel of an old farmhouse while enjoying a clean, contemporary feel.
Plenty of Light
Window frames are getting thinner, which is tied to homeowners’ increasing desire to add daylight and beautiful views into their homes. Slimmer frames mean that windows can be easily banked together. This preserves your outdoor view while acting as a less-expensive alternative to massive window or door units.
Outdoor space is appealing to every homeowner as a way to expand the home’s footprint as well as create a unique entertainment or relaxation space. An outdoor patio, deck, or screened-in area adds an appealing dimension to your home exteriors and provides you with comfortable space suitable for a number of activities.
Blend Indoors and Outdoors
Homeowners are also exploring many design trends that help blend the indoors and outdoors of their home. Multi-panel doors that slide or glide out of the way are one way to create a seamless connection to your outdoor space. You can also build this connection by installing similar flooring in indoor and outdoor spaces.
No one wants to spend their weekends power-washing or restaining their home siding. Fortunately, homeowners now have the choice to use low-maintenance materials for their home exteriors. Many artificial materials are being manufactured to replicate the authentic look of wood, for example, while being designed to resist moisture, cracking, and insects.
Incorporating any of these trends into your new home exterior can provide you with a stylish, modern home design that makes you feel as though you’re living in a brand new house.
