2018 Home Exterior Trends

So far in 2018, we’re seeing a lot of fun home exterior trends.  Some of these things we’ve seen before, and others are newer concepts.  In this article, we’re going to introduce you to whats trending for our homes right now.

Color Pop and Contrasting Colors

One thing we’re seeing a lot of this year, is homes that use a a few similar colors matched with one very bold color to make the home pop.  Many people take this approach by using a light siding and a dark fascia of the same color, paired with a colored front door for that pop.  The photo below is a good example of this trend.

Multiple Textures

We are also seeing a demand for combined textures on homes this year.  People are pairing combinations like stone and siding for a modern look on their home.


Farmhouse Architecture & Wooden Garage Doors

A very popular trend recently is wooden garage doors.  This might be one of our favorite new trends.  You’re going to see a lot more of these popping up in new neighborhoods.  Keep your eyes peeled!

Farmhouse architecture is also gaining popularity.  The brown house in the photo above is a great shot of the new farmhouse look people are aiming for in their home.

Large Windows & Grand Entrances

Grand entrances have been around for a while, but we’re seeing more and more people looking for this concept.  Grand entrances are known for having pillars, a balcony, or large windows.

Speaking of large windows, people are always asking for those too!  There are many benefits to new large windows.  Not only do they let in more natural light, but they can also be more energy efficient.

Landscape Awareness

People are really enjoying spending time outside, and with that comes landscaping concepts.  Decks, patios, sheds, and other outdoor entertainment areas are all on the rise this year.  And who could blame you for wanting to sit out on your new deck on a bright sunny day?
