The Top 5 Home Exterior Trends You Should Know for 2021
When it comes to the exterior of your home, style can be everything. It is the very first impression someone has of your home and sets the tone before they walk through the door. Pair that with fantastic landscaping and lighting, and you could have a knockout for a home!
Our team of home building experts took a look at what was hot in home exteriors in 2020 and have made our predictions for the 5 Top Home Exterior trends for 2021 – and here they are.
1. Low Maintenance
When life and schedules get the best of you, the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time (and money) on the upkeep of your home – let alone the exterior. 2020 proved to be a challenging year, and what we’ve heard the most when building homes for our clients, is the question: How much maintenance will I need to do on the outside?
Bottom line: The least amount of maintenance and upkeep; the better.
A trend that has become one of the staples of home design, is the modern farmhouse look. It provides all of the benefits of a country-comfort contemporary home, with a modern feel. We’re talking about beautiful features like wide open porches for gatherings, with modern sleek line design and materials for a clean-fresh look.
Multi-Textured homes offer a very modern feel, with the use of combining different building materials. The mixing and matching of these materials, both in large areas of your home’s exterior and through accenting details, can give you an attractive and complex look.
4. Outdoor Living Spaces
Utilizing outdoor space on a property has always been popular, however, more buyers today are wanting a transitional space incorporated in their home build. Large oversized sliding doors stepping into outdoor kitchens and living room-type spaces are extremely trendy.
Typical indoor amenities are being incorporated outdoors. Outdoor kitchens feature countertops, grill tops and even wood-burning ovens, while outdoor living room spaces have fireplaces and entertainment systems incorporated into them.
5. Energy Efficiency
With the coronavirus impacting all aspects of our lives, people are spending more time at home, which has also impacted energy use and bills. We are finding that now, more than ever, home buyers are wanting homes built with more energy saving solutions.
