A new year and new design trends are taking center stage. Exterior design is something that homeowners often must commit to for years to come and therefore something the homeowner must truly love to enjoy the home. Here are some the Ins & Outs for 2018!
Vinyl Siding: Out
Vinyl Siding was popular for years due to its low maintenance use and affordability at the start. But vinyl siding can become extremely brittle and fade due to the elements. Consider Hardy Plank versus Vinyl Siding for your home for return on investment.
Detailed Siding: In
To bring that “pop” to the outside of your home, consider using multi-colored siding when remodeling or building your custom home. White trim near windows, different colors on different levels and even rockscaping for siding can bring that detailed look to your home.
Stone & Brick: In
Bring sophistication and a colonial charm to your home using stone and brick for your siding. This is extremely durable and can withstand the elements with ease. Not only will this improve ROI, but will give your home a timeless style that will never go out of favor.
Dull Entrances: Out
They say the doorway to the home sets your ambiance and design trends for 2018 agree! Bring pop to your entryway with pillars, chairs, floral accessories and a bright door.
Changing your siding to a new color is great, but the siding is not accessorized with some contrasting color, the home may have a “washed out” look. Consider adding shutters to your windows in contrasting color to bring dimension to your exterior!
