There are many ways to improve your home’s aesthetic appeal. You can replace your old windows, roof, or siding. You can even add a deck, porch, and sunroom. Whatever the home improvement project is, different components should work together to create a harmonious look that blends well with the surroundings and the neighborhood, too.
Designing can be tricky, so Tittle Brothers Construction suggests you follow these basic design principles for a beautiful home.
1. Always remember that form follows function.
A popular adage used in architectural projects, this means that you should base your design on the purpose of the building. Make sure to think about what you need first and then conduct a remodeling project that will meet that need. For example, if you have a stuffy and dark room, you can brighten it with large operable windows.
2. Create a symmetrical look.
A well-balanced exterior look is pleasing to any passerby. You can achieve this by placing windows beside your front door or incorporate pointed rooflines.
3. Balance aesthetics with durability.
Keep in mind that rain, sun, and wind are elements that your home exterior always faces. Nowadays, modern and durable materials come in several colors and styles, so you don’t have to compromise style with durability. For example, GAF asphalt shingles come in a variety of textures and shades and can stand strong against any weather condition.
4. Play with different color combinations.
Choosing a color for your Detroit roofing, siding, or windows can be difficult because of the number of color possibilities. If you want to go safe, select one dark and one light shade from the same hue. You can use one shade for the body and use the other one for the trim. If you want to accentuate different areas of your home, you can use a third color. Another color tip is using darker colors on top and lighter shades on the bottom. This creates an illusion of a smaller looking home.
