Hottest Exterior Trends to Embrace
So, you finally turned the inside of your house into your dream home. But what about the outside? We hear a lot of talk about interior décor, but oftentimes we forget that exterior design is just as important for the perfect home.
You might be surprised to hear that exterior design is subject to trends. Let’s dive into some of the hottest exterior design trends.
Make A First Impression
When it comes to doors and fences, the traditional look is out. Forget about inconspicuous choices. Current trends are all about stylevand originality! Homeowners these days are all about taking pride in their beautiful homes. Fences this season are expected to be unique, with interesting patterns. Ornate facades around the main entrance are one way to achieve this.
The front door is a flashy affair. Intricate wrought iron doors are an option BUT a bold pop of color, like red, is another way to grab attention. The practical and unusual-looking Dutch doors have also been gaining popularity.
The window trends are changing as well. The usual white window frames have been replaced with bolder colors. The garden is just as important as the home itself. It’s a place where your family can spend time together and enjoy themselves or your own private space where you can spend some quality time outdoors.
If you have an underutilized yard, now is the time to work on turning it into a veritable outdoor oasis.
Play With Textures
Different textures can add layers of depth to the aesthetics of your yard. You could choose to create dynamics using eclectic textures, or by contrasting slightly different textures and finishes of similar materials.
TIP: Experiment with natural materials, such as stone, reclaimed wood, tiles, ceramics, clay, steel and brick. Materials with interesting texture can go a long way and create a beautiful effect with little effort and a relatively low budget.
Take A Dip
Pools are an amazing addition to any house. First and foremost, they look great. Second, they are a wonderful way to keep cool and fit during the warm months. Third, a pool will raise the value of your property, should you ever wish to sell.
Pools are becoming prettier. One of the popular trends are the luxurious infinity pools. We have also noticed a rise in popularity for added water features, like cascades, swim jets, and air beds. Intricate underwater lights create a sight to behold, and extend the time for swimming well into warm summer nights.
Sustainability Is Sexy
Sustainability is a prevailing trend when it comes to homes. Your yard is the perfect place to embrace nature. An organic vegetable and herb garden is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself and your family. Not to mention the cost savings from picking fruit and vegetables from straight from your garden.
TIP: Try composting to create your own mulch and fertilizer while simultaneously reducing the amount of rubbish.
