Exterior Custom Home Trends

From paint colors to lighting, exterior design choices can make all the difference when considering the look of your new custom home. We can help you maximize your curb appeal and improve your home’s overall value and comfort. Here are some ideas and inspiration to help you decide what elements to include in your home design.

Neutral Color

One of the most important decisions to make when designing your custom home is choosing paint colors. Neutral colors are popular because they blend into nature easily and go with almost anything. Earthy tones, greens, soft whites, and even various shades of black can be stylish while creating contrast.

Mixed Materials

Add instant character to your home with the use of different textures to create visual interest. Show off your home’s unique features by adding dimension to your exterior. A few ways to do that include the use of stone, brick, or shingles on your walls or using wood or metal accents.

Modern Lighting

Highlight the unique features of your new home with exterior lighting that creates a welcoming feeling. The right lighting can increase your curb appeal, while providing safety for your family and guests. For a more sustainable option, choose solar-powered LED lights.

Indoor-Outdoor Living

Elevate your outdoor space by creating an extended living area that can accommodate all your favorite activities. Outdoor kitchens and dining spaces are a must-have for entertaining. Consider a fire pit or sheltered lounge to maximize your time spent outdoors in any weather.

Minimalistic Design

Think about keeping your overall home theme sleek and modern without unnecessary details or complicated finishes. A minimalist home utilizes large, open spaces with an overall simplified look and clean lines.
