4 Exterior Remodeling Projects to Make a Custom Home Standout
If you are thinking about improving your home’s exterior you are probably aware that most exterior remodels require a fair amount of work and money. Taking this into account you will most likely want to plan and explore several exterior remodel options before deciding on exactly what you would like to implement into your custom home design. The following exterior remodels focus on your home’s curb appeal, outdoor spaces, and smaller exterior elements. These areas of your home’s exterior are great places to add extra touches of style, class, and design.
- Custom Garage Door
Installing a custom garage door is the perfect way to give your home’s exterior a design makeover. In recent years, wooden garage doors have become very popular among homeowners looking to improve their home’s curb appeal. However, there are also several other types of custom garage doors. These designs often include large windows, luxury garage trim, and various intricate metal panels. Another great way to spruce up your home’s garage door is to give it a new coat of paint. While white garage doors are still commonplace more and more modern homeowners are switching to darker colors such as black and grey.
- Professional Landscaping
Another great way to increase your home’s curb appeal is to hire a company to professionally landscape your yard. General landscaping designs normally include the creation of several luxurious flower beds that are then planted with a variety of plant species. However, your exterior remodeling project could also include creative landscaping features such as the installation of a fountain, art piece, or koi pond. While these features do require continued maintenance they are sure to bring a special touch to your home’s exterior.
- Luxury Stonework
Luxury stonework can add a unique touch of class and style to any home. Homeowners choosing to implement this exterior remodeling project can be as creative as they would like as they can choose from a seemingly endless array of stonework designs and colors. In addition, your luxury stonework project will make your home stand out even more when its colors are highlighted by various light fixtures, your custom garage door, or roofing materials like concrete roof tiles. All of these features will blend together to create a home exterior that is saturated with curb appeal.
- Porch, Deck, or Fireplace
Are you trying to improve your home’s backyard or front yard? Depending on which you decide on you may want to install a large front porch or a back deck. These exterior projects will help you create more outside space that can be used for recreation and gatherings that take place at your home. Your backyard space may also benefit from the inclusion of an exterior fireplace.
Exterior fireplaces will not only help heat your outdoor space to keep it usable throughout the year, but it will also become one of the most unique features your home possesses. A wood fireplace or fire pit will be the easiest to install in your backyard. Though a gas-powered fireplace is easier to use and the more unique option.
Enjoy Your New Home Exterior!
While adding a custom garage door, exterior fireplace, or luxury stonework to your home are great ways to increase curb appeal and add a touch of style, these are not the only ways to do so. Other exterior projects that were not mentioned include painting your home’s exterior trim, finding out what the best house siding material is, or upgrading your home’s windows. No matter what project you choose to undertake first, remember that your home is only as perfect as you feel it is. You are the one who lives there. Therefore, your home’s exterior should reflect your personality, lifestyle, and habits!
