Your home’s exterior dictates a large part of its value and should be in line with the interior architectural style. Many homeowners want their exteriors to be sustainable and durable. If you are planning your home renovation, choose Coastline Development Group Ltd.
Here are some exterior renovation ideas to help you make an informed decision:
· Add a Fibre Cement Siding
Replace your present siding with fibre cement, a versatile material available in several styles and colours. It is also durable and requires low maintenance.
· Add Accent Sections
When it comes to siding, there are many options such as shingles, panels, corrugated metal and decorative trim. You can choose one or more for your garages, barns, eaves and towers.
· Paint the House
Over time paint begins to peel off looking dingy and dull; a fresh coat of paint can improve the beauty of your home. The colour should match the home’s architectural style. For instance, you can use a slightly dark paint on Victorians but a saturated colour palette on your modern home.
· Use a Pop of Accent Colour
This is one of the hottest trends in home exteriors. Bold coloured accents can be used on the front door and shutters. Select a colour which complements the rest of your space.
· Update Your Roof
A roof plays a significant role in how your home looks and you must promptly replace an old one. For example, you can replace asphalt shingles with architectural shingles for more dimensions. They keep your home cool and protect from UV rays. Some of the other ideas include using a standing seam metal roof on contemporary properties or a tile roof made of concrete.
· Add a Porch
Consider adding a porch to increase the value of your property. Porches not only give an elegant look to the façade but also offer more outdoor living space.
· Add Some Texture
To include some texture, you can add a brick or a stone veneer or accent wall to a section of your house. Modern homes make great use of architectural wall panels, corrugated metal panels and stucco to add textures.
· Bring in Shutters
If your home does not have shutters, you can consider adding them. Many homes have generic-style shutters which are unattractive. With so many choices available in the market today, you can choose one that stands out.
· Enlarge Your Windows
Windows are considered the eyes of any home. If they are too small or few, they can detract from their style while keeping the interiors dark. Consider enlarging them by adding a bay or picture window or simply changing the size and shape of it.
· Enhance Your Landscape
Landscaping is important when it comes to home renovation. Adding some well-placed shrubs and plants can hide a multitude of structural errors, while bringing much-needed colour and life to your area.
· Add Exterior Lighting
By adding some exterior lights, your façade can be seen during the day and night. If your home has large soffits or overhangs beneath your roof, install some discrete lights to define your roofline after sunset.
How Exterior Home Renovation Can Improve Your Lifestyle
Exterior home renovation is something which people don’t do every day. But this investment can pay off manifold. Some of the perks include:
· Safety and Comfort
Most renovations are done to install windows and other similar interfaces. Windows get damaged from extreme weather like freezing cold and rain. You must remodel your home as per your requirement to increase its level of comfort and safety.
· Proper Maintenance
Houses are not built to last forever. They need timely maintenance to prolong their lifespan.
Apart from making a home beautiful, renovation also helps increase its functionality. For instance, if a kitchen or a bathroom is not built according to your needs, chances are you won’t like it.
