Ideas to consider adding to your exterior design
Style your roof without complexity
One of the newest yet simplest roof styles is the modern flat roof! Besides creating spaces for roof gardening and providing eco-friendly roofs they give you the opportunity for getting panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Many people have false preconceived ideas about this design. One of them is thinking that it is 100% flat. In fact they are built with slight slope allowing water to drain and avoiding its accumulation.
Choose the right design for your house
There aren’t actually bad or good exterior styles. In fact many successful designs couldn’t be suitable for your house. If it worked with your neighbor‘s house doesn’t mean that it will work with yours! Many questions should be asked before choosing the paint, roof design and other things. For example establishing the garage in the house front could ruin the landscape because of the small horizontal length of the property.
Implement size proportioned windows
Regardless of the windows style one must always keep in mind that in order to preserve the house’s simplicity, the windows sizes must be proportioned to the construction’s size. Not to mention that it is of great importance that the windows measurements must be nearly equal.
Mistakes to avoid for your house’s exterior design
Poor paint color
The fact that choosing the right paint color for the exterior of the home is even harder than the interior paint is poorly known. One must always take into consideration the home style, its environment and the neighborhood style as well. Also having 3 or more different paint colors could be harmful rather than creative.
No obvious home entrance
The front door entrance is essential to making a good first impression. Some houses have double height entrances or entrances through garages, rear or side doors therefore diminishing the attention to the main door. Even if not used regularly, having 2 doors near each other can easily create confusion among visitors.
Unnecessary symmetrical building
We all like things to be symmetrical but sometimes giving too much symmetry to a house can make its style as uninspiring and predictable. This design could be suitable for large main rooms but in case of modest projects a symmetrical design could be terrible like For example putting windows symmetrically on the expense of rightfully illuminating the rooms behind them.
In conclusion many aspects should be taken into consideration in order to implement the best suitable style for your house. Many architects could disagree about some details but all together confirm that keeping your home’s external design simple is way more attractive than complex styles.
Even if some rules have exceptions, these general principles can be applied to most external designs. Understanding them can help you find the best design for your house.
