You’ve designed a stunning custom home and considered every detail of its interior. But does your home look as beautiful and inviting on the outside as it feels on the inside? Curb appeal is the final, critical aspect to consider to ensure your home is as inspiring as possible.
One way to create curb appeal is from a structural standpoint. According to Allie Roberts, design specialist at Bill Roberts Custom Homes, the placement of garage doors can have a huge impact on a home’s curb appeal. “No one wants to stare at a huge garage door. At Bill Roberts Custom Homes, we try to avoid putting the garage in front of the rest of the home. It is one of the top design elements we consider when customizing a home’s exterior.” It is preferable to have a side- or back-facing garage instead. Ms. Roberts continues, “Houses that are able to accommodate a side or back garage are so much more charming.”
Landscape design is the backbone for inspiring curb appeal. According to Ms. Roberts, “Landscaping provides the biggest wow factor when creating curb appeal. Providing greenery and colors through plants and flowers makes your home inviting to those walking or driving by.” Popular, reliable plant choices include barberry, evergreen shrubs, tulips, roses, and dahlias. Additionally, incorporating river rock and boulders in a landscape design, whether to create a meandering dry bed or a self-contained waterfall feature, adds an air of elegance to complement your luxury home.
Design elements can reinforce dynamic curb appeal. Choosing blue or green for the front door’s color can add interest. Symmetry also makes a big impact and is pleasing to the eye. Boost curb appeal by flanking the front door with matching sconces and decor or evenly lining a walkway with colorful plants along each edge. Accent lighting in trees or bushes or along a pathway can offer dramatic evening results.
Your home’s exterior is the first impression guests and passersby will have of your investment. Use these design ideas to ensure your home achieves envy-worthy curb appeal.

Everyday life can be filled with challenges, but at the end of the day, entering your home should be a comforting and peaceful experience. Your home is your sanctuary — an extension of yourself — and finding the right home for you makes all the difference in the world. If you’re in the market for a new home, have you considered working with a custom home builder? Here are four reasons why going custom might be a good fit for you.
A custom home builder provides the ultimate home-buying experience. With a custom home, you get a blank canvas that is yours to design as you see fit. There are virtually endless options for customization so you get exactly what you want. From floorplans to cabinets, trims to interior finishes, you get to paint your masterpiece with the help of your personal home design team.
Your custom home builder will handle all aspects of the home building process while keeping you informed every step of the way. You’ll never have to wonder or worry about the status or progress of your custom home build.
Hiring a custom home builder may sound like an expensive adventure however, if you’re building your dream home, it could actually save you money in the long run. A custom home builder will take your wish list and design your home to fit your needs. Saving you costly upgrades, renovations, or architectural changes that can really add up when building your perfect home on your own. And if you work with a design/build custom home builder, you’ll get even more bang for your buck because architectural blueprints and interior design are handled in-house, making the process turn-key, efficient, and fun.
A custom home builder will provide professional skilled craftsmen for every step of the home building process, along with proper scheduling and management of all aspects of your new home project. This is a fundamental key of building your dream home in a stress-free fashion. Your custom builder brings reliable, vetted resources that help bring your dream to fruition.
As you’re weighing your options, consider the not-so-obvious aspects of each. The idea of buying a used home for less money excites many people. However, sometimes these homes require plenty of remodeling and projects. Purchasing a new construction home with a predetermined floor plan might be a better option, though you may not get exactly what you’re looking for here either.
You have a couple options to analyze if you’re considering building a custom home too. Managing the custom home building process on your own seems like a good way to save some cash. However, not everyone has experience managing these processes, or the time to do it. If that sounds like you, then working alongside custom home builders allows you to partner with professionals who will get the job done correctly while you focus on other aspects of your life.
Finding your dream home is much more than a transaction — it’s an experience. If you’re looking for your dream home in Edmond, Oklahoma, our goal is to make that experience as simple and pleasant as possible. As an added bonus, every home we build comes with a warranty!
