3 Considerations for Custom Home Exteriors

The design and color palette of your home’s exterior should be cohesive and work to help boost its curb appeal while adding value. It should also provide a glimpse of your interior design and architectural style.


Whether you build your home from the ground up or remodel your existing home exterior, you should consider styles that are not limited to current trends, but more importantly, styles that are timeless. This includes the exterior color palettes and material selections.


Some homeowners know exactly what they want—they have a specific vision in mind and our team at Ryan A. Jones & Associates helps bring it to life. However, that is not always the case, and many people need some guidance when choosing the architectural style, color palettes, and materials that best match with their aesthetic preferences.

The following are a few considerations when designing your custom home exterior that we think are worth sharing.


#1: The Home’s Facades

Track homes tend to all look the same on the outside, hence the term they have earned as cookie cutter homes. But when you build a custom home, you have many opportunities to capture your unique design style, including your home’s façade.


There are several materials, textures, and colors to choose from and you may even find yourself choosing a couple different materials and textures to add dimension to your home’s exterior.


#2: Farmhouse Elements

The farmhouse interior design style has been trending for decades. While you may not be wholly on board with this design style, there are a few timeless, popular elements that you may want to consider for your home exteriors, including black window frames and white vertical siding.

#3: Indoor/Outdoor Transitions

Windows and sliding glass doors have increased in the amount of wall space they occupy to allow for ample natural illumination and more of a connection with nature. Your window and door frames become the picture frames for your natural scapes. This is also why you will notice many homes now being built or renovated with thinner, darker framing.


Consider placing large, picturesque windows and multi-panel sliding glass doors where appropriate along your home’s exterior.
