Keeping up to date with the latest exterior design trends is one way of maintaining your home’s curb appeal. The roofing contractors at Renovation Team list some of these trends and suggest ways on how you can take advantage of these.
The Wider Trend for Siding
Homeowners have always prioritized durability, and this year it’s no different. In terms of aesthetics, there has been a shift in preference towards siding with classic aesthetics. This may explain why more and more homeowners prefer siding with a sleek and smooth appearance.
The Siding as the Focus of the Exterior
The increasing popularity of siding with a smooth appearance comes at the expense of textured siding. This isn’t surprising considering how hard it is to coordinate textures. Siding with a sleek aesthetic, on the other hand, is easier to pair with natural finishes and, therefore, has longer-lasting appeal.
However, design experts say increasing focus on the siding might also have played a role. As a general rule, all the parts of the exterior should complement each other. But most homeowners treated their siding as a mere accent, which is another reason why difficult-to-coordinate textured siding was viable at the time. But as mentioned earlier, the siding being seen as a focal point of the exterior changed all of this.
The Practical Benefits of Long-Lasting Durability and Aesthetics
Apart from increasing your property value, siding with a sleeker appearance can also help make maintaining curb appeal a lot easier. After all, classic colors and finishes complement a wider range of design elements. This, in turn, reduces the need for extensive renovations aimed solely at updating your exterior. For example, instead of doing a major overhaul, something as simple as replacing your roofing shingles can update your home’s entire look.
