Fashion Design, Interior Design and Exterior Design are all affected by current trends. This includes the exterior of your home. When selecting products for the exterior of your home you want to select products that will sustain itself over a long period of time. When making decisions about your exterior remodel be careful to consider:
- How the final products will stand up to changes in trends and styles over a long period of time
- How colors and textures will blend with neighborhood homes and other environmental factors which will include shrubbery, trees, and landscape products
- How does the exterior products compliment your homes interior
This beautiful home is a perfect example of the use of color and materials that will have a lasting effect. The homeowner selected Mastics 16’ Structure Siding in D6 Pebblestone Clay. Pebblestone Clay accessories were used for the Porch Ceiling and Soffit. White was selected for the corners and fascia.
Exterior products, which continue to remain trendy and stylish because of their durability and beauty, include:
Many architects and homebuilders are adding stone or brick face to current designs. Products that are being used are both natural and synthetic. Real stone can prove to be costly. New technology provides the homeowner with choices that allow the builder to add stone detail to the exterior of homes at a reduced cost of using natural stone.
Vinyl siding provides the homeowner with a variety of choices and options, including both color and style. Companies who specialize in vinyl siding can show the homeowner a variety of options, which will add detail to the overall architectural features of the home. Those options include detail color of soffit, fascia, shutters and shakes. Benefits of vinyl siding include not having to paint your home’s exterior, as well as weather resistance qualities.
Fiber Cement Siding
Cement board type siding is another exterior product, which is available to homeowners. This type of siding is often considered a “green” material because it is made with cement. Current styles of fiber cement boards include panels, which are made to resemble stucco, wood, and cedar shingles. Cement board, as with vinyl, offers homeowners benefits. Benefits include weather resistance qualities and the ability to withstand typical rot conditions of wood siding.
Once you have selected your homes exterior materials, remember to also consider finishing touches that will set your home apart from others on your block. Don’t be afraid to look at color enhancement by adding additional touches with garage door color, front door color, window and trim color, deck and porch enhancements.
Common mistakes homeowners make include:
- Choosing the wrong type of paint/surface element for the homes exterior surface
- Choosing colors that don’t enhance your home or the homes features.
- When using stone and/or brick use siding colors found within the stone/brick façade.
- As with all design elements, moderation is an important factor to remember!
