If you are thinking about updating the exterior of your home, paying attention to trends in exterior home design can be a great way to ensure that your house has an up-to-date look for years to come. At Alderidge Construction, they want to help you create a house that you will be proud to go home to. That is why they have put together a list of some of their favourite exterior home design trends.

1. Dark Colours

While houses have been sporting dark trims and accents for a long time, entirely dark exteriors have started to become increasingly popular over the past few years. This exterior home trend works for any style of house, as there is an endless variety of dark shades to choose from.

2. Decorative-Looking Garage Doors

One of the biggest trends in exterior home design is the shift toward choosing more decorative-looking garage doors instead of opting for traditional metal garage doors. Consider choosing contemporary glass garage doors, carriage-style garage doors that provide a touch of character, or black garage doors in a unique pattern or texture.

3. Natural Wood Elements

More and more people are choosing to use natural wood elements throughout the interior of their homes. So, why not continue the look and feel on the exterior of the house? Natural wood elements allow homeowners to create a stunning aesthetic with wood brackets, columns, doors, shutters, and living walls.

4. Exterior Living Areas

Exterior living areas work to bring the inside of your house outside by creating inviting decks and patio spaces that your friends and family will love. Consider adding in elements such as a hot tub, firepit, outdoor kitchen, and a gazebo with built in bench seating for the perfect hangout space.

5. Black Accents

In addition to using darker colour schemes on houses, many homeowners and builders will often choose to use black as an accent colour on everything from shutters and doors to accent walls, large sections of the siding, and on the trim. Using black as an accent on your home’s exterior can create a bold, eye-catching facade that will help your home stand out.
