First Impressions: Curb Appeal Design for Your Whole Home Remodel or New Home

From the design of your front door to the approach from the street, how your home looks and functions on the outside should reflect the beauty within. Curb appeal remodels encompass your home’s overall architecture, plus fences and gates, landscaping, doors and windows. Here are some ideas for how curb appeal can bring visual unity and lasting value to your whole home remodel or new home:

Thoughtful Architecture
Architecture strongly influences the overall curb appeal of your home. This three-level home near the beach takes a geometric approach, with bold architecture and an innovative use of materials. A once chaotic exterior was transformed with clarity into a stunning modern design. The central stair tower is a defining focal point.

Unified Details
Symmetry and balance are essential to exterior design. The engaging curb appeal of this traditional home evokes the character of a Spanish-style spa resort. Arches creating a covered patio effect are a distinguishing feature of the home’s new front exterior, while intricate tile insets and lighting fixtures framed in iron are placed with pleasing repetition.

Color & Landscaping
Curb appeal design should stand out as distinct and expressive of your personal style while also having a sense of place in its surroundings. The vivid blue exterior with elements influenced by Craftsman style first draws the eye to this stunning beach home in the Wind ‘n Sea area of La Jolla. A front deck allows the homeowners to enjoy their pretty garden and socialize with neighbors.

First impressions matter as much for your whole home remodel or new home as they do in other areas of life. The entry to your home is the first place where visitors will get a sense of its aesthetics and craftsmanship. Working with a unified team of architects, designers, and construction professionals assures your home will be beautiful and original inside and out.
