West Seattle Residence – Exterior Color Design
You’ve heard the expression “it’s what is on the inside that counts.” While that is often true with people, we believe with the exterior of your home – it’s what’s on the outside too.
We are strong believers that the exterior design of your home should exhibit balance and symmetry – an appeal that is achieved through the use of carefully selected house materials and textures.
The design of your front façade is achieved by considering your entryway, porch, exterior paint color, front door, windows, exterior lighting, roofing, siding, landscaping, fencing and hard scape. The sum of all of these parts will create a timeless and pleasing appeal while emphasizing architectural detail.
With so many options, it becomes difficult to decide which materials to use. How do we choose between cedar shingles, composite siding, aluminum, brick, wood, stucco, steel? Roofing and siding materials and their styles are some of the most important choices you will make for your home exterior, and their overall form and function must be fully considered. Add fresh landscaping with a few containers on the porch to take the eye away from the crumbling concrete. In order to avoid costly mistakes, it is always best to consult with a skilled designer to help you select before you make the financial investment.
Your exterior paint color choices are vital in keeping your building up-to-date. Color can play up so many features of the exterior, especially with large scale projects. The ways that color can trick the eye and play up the positive are endless!
To vastly improve your building’s exterior curb appeal, consider modifying the front entrance, trim work, railing and columns to fit your structure stylistically. An outstanding entrance incorporating landscaping, hardscaping and lighting will make a statement and add value to the property.
The added benefit is knowing how much your community will love you!
