How to Design Your New Home to Have Curb Appeal

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.
