How do you want to feel when you are walking up to your newly constructed home? Believe it or not, your home’s façade sets the tone for how not only you, but others, will feel when they see it. It should be both a focal point, and a blended attribute within the surrounding landscape. For this reason, deciding on a façade for your custom home is extremely important. We’ve put together some expert advice to help you get started!
Things To Consider.
Location matters. If your custom home is being built in a coastal area, selecting a facade that complements the landscape is ideal. Think of attributes that represent vastness and flow, such as large windows. Whereas if you are building in a busy city or village, you may opt for a more contemporary and private facade. Think sharp lines and corners, simultaneously using cool neutrals to soften the hard edges.
Maintenance is also an important element to consider. Ask yourself how much effort you are able to put in to ensuring your facade maintains its appearance. Some will simply require powerwashing now and then. Others require more laborious upkeep, with landscaping or staining.
Your home should represent you. When it comes to adding your personal touches to your façade, think about the materials that particularly stand out to you. All the key elements involved – including the style, look, materials, colors, features, lighting and landscaping – should tie together with one another to create a story about who you are and how you love to live.
Lastly, you will want to consider the interior style of your home. The exterior should invite and ease people into your home; there should be some sense of consistency. If the two clash, details that would otherwise enchant may suddenly seem out of place.
