Top Exterior Designs of 2019
The phrase “judging a book by its cover” is true for home design as people judge a home by its exterior. Whether you are preparing to sell your home or update your current home, spending money on improving the design is not only appealing and impressive to potential buyers but to neighbors and yourself.
Here is a list of the latest home trends and designs for 2019:
The modern farmhouse look is becoming more popular than ever. The idea of having a spacious porch is attractive to potential buyers as it makes the home appear much larger than it is.
If you don’t currently have a porch, no need to worry as adding one is not that difficult of a task. The most important aspect to consider when transforming a porch is investing in quality furniture that makes the space inviting.
Items like a porch swing with cozy pillows, solid wood rocking chairs, and a side table to put your drink on all come together and turns into a functional and beautiful area. Adding simple touches like lantern-style hanging lights or some greeny can really elevate the entire look.
Outdoor String Lights
String lights have become wildly popular in the last year and the simple addition to space can bring it to life. A strand of clear white bulb string lights adorned on the exterior of your deck or backyard is a lovely touch. The lights provide a perfect ambiance for outdoor activities, such as an outdoor barbecue or bonfire.
When choosing string lights, look for the ones that radiate a warm glow versus a sterile, white glow. If you do not want to have to plug your lights into an outlet, they do sell solar paneled ones. By having your front or backyard well lit you are adding a feeling of safety.
This trend has only been growing, especially for those who enjoy a pop of color. Pick a color that you love and know will complement the color of your entire house. You can also repeat the color of the door in your yard colors to bring it all together. If you ever want to make a change or need to go neutral again for selling purposes, it is extremely easy!
Dark Exterior Finish
We are seeing more and more homes with black paint to give off a classic and sophisticated look. The pairing of monochromatic black paint with a metal roof is a force to be reckoned with. Don’t be afraid to add wood accents with black, as it appears very appealing to the eye. If you have a colonial style home, having darker shades results in a beautiful finish all around.
The style of outdoor fireplaces is only becoming more and more creative. It is starting to become more of a trend of adding an outdoor fireplace instead of an indoor. The technology and design have only become better leading to easy and efficient use of these fireplaces. The perfect fireplace is out there for you and will turn your deck into an intimate and cozy space. Invite all your friends and family over and share love and laughter over the fireplace.
