When it comes to design, the inside of your house often gets the focus, with new flooring, new furniture, and pricey renovations. But the exterior of your home is also an important part of your home’s aesthetic – and your roof is a big part of that. So if you’re ready to spruce up the outside of your home, Roofstar is here with some home exterior design ideas and tips centered around your new roof.
How to Design the Exterior of Your Home
When it comes to home design, there are tons of different opinions out there on how to make your home stand out on the block. When it comes down to it, however, the only opinion that truly matters is yours. The best way to decide what style you like best is to research different types, then sit down and visualize each one on your house and how you’d feel looking at it every day.
Do you want to match the other houses on the block, but give your home a refreshed look? Do you want to stand out with a modern or retro aesthetic? Do you want your home to overflow with a beautiful garden, or reflect a sleek, modern look? Or do you want to mix and match for a style that’s unique to you?
How Can I Add Value to My Home’s Exterior?
If your goal is to add value to your home to increase the selling price, there are several good choices. For a simple option, a touch-up will likely be worth it; a power-wash, a new coat of paint, and a brand-new roof will do wonders for your home’s value. If you’re looking to take it a step further, getting new windows and doors, installing eco-friendly features like solar panels, or even adding a pool to the backyard can increase your home’s value significantly.
Exterior Design and Your Roof
So what are some good ideas for exterior design on your roof? Here are a few tips to get you started:
- Make Sure Colors Match: If you want a new look for your roof, make sure that it won’t clash with your home’s current paint color or design style – or plan to change both at the same time. The last thing you want is to step back from admiring your beautiful new roof, only to notice that the color clashes with the rest of your home.
- Consider the Shape of Your Roof: Certain styles will work better with certain roof designs. Roofs come in all different shapes and sizes, but there are traditional styles that will look best with specific designs. For instance, a gabled roof is a classic, homey look that matches well with a traditional design scheme. A flat roof can be styled in either a classic or modern way – or go for a unique theme with a blooming roof garden. Your roof is your canvas, but make sure your design matches what you’re working with.
- Change the Shingles or Tiles: If you’re ready for a new look, consider changing your tiles. Shingles and tiles come in a variety of options – from wood, to clay, to metal. Each type of roofinghas its benefits and downsides, so you can work with your roofer to determine what’s best for your roof, in terms of both design and functionality.
