As the very first thing you see, the exterior of your house sets the tone before you enter. It leaves a long-lasting impression, creating the curb appeal that brings pride and imparts real value. And it’s why picking designs and features that are both on-trend and timeless are oh so important. What does this combination look like today? Here are a few of the custom home exterior trends for you to consider!
Multi-Textured Fades in Your Custom Home Exterior
Buyers keep on clamoring custom home exteriors that combine textures and materials to create a varied style and dimension. For example, fiber cement siding with blending horizontal siding with vertical siding, or stone accents. In this type of exterior, there could be rain screen accents added as well.
The modern farmhouse exterior, a contemporary take on your classic farmhouse, has been on trend for multiple years, so much that some say it is on it’s way out. But we are still seeing a surge in its influence among buyers. Many crave its authenticity and comforting familiarity that is brought along with it. So if you love black window frames, shiplap, and vertical siding, this custom home exterior might be for you.
Plenty of Light
Along with going a bit darker, window frames are becoming thinner, and this bodes quite well for homeowners’’ ongoing love of glass that attracts daylight while offering connections to the great outdoors. Slimmer profiles mean the windows could quickly be banked together while still preserving a beautiful view. This is a less-pricey alternative to massive door units or windows. This is a strong custom home exterior design choice for you to consider.
Blending the Indoors and Out
Alongside the outdoor living trend is a strong desire to blend both the outdoors and the indoors. A proliferation of multi-panel doors that glide or slide entirely out of the way can help create a vast, often seamless connection to the outside area. Similar flooring can further enhance this blending. Consider this custom home exterior if you’re living in a bit of a wooded region.
