First impressions create powerful memories, so there’s no question that you want your home exterior to look stunning. Kavin Construction is a luxury home builder in Los Angeles that works closely with clients to improve the look of their homes – both inside and outside.
To provide you with some inspiration and encouragement, here are some of the most popular trends we’re seeing for home exteriors in Los Angeles and beyond.
Big and Bold Windows
Most older homes in California have small windows because they were built in a time when glass was expensive. If your home has smaller windows than you’d like, there are a few ways to bring more natural light into your home.
More homeowners are choosing windows with dark, thin frames. From the outside, the windows really pop! From the inside, you’re connected to nature. Plus, the thinner frames make it easy to group windows together.
Outdoor spaces remain high on homeowners’ wish lists. Just think – with large windows, you can create a seamless transition from your indoors to your outdoors!
Lucky for us, California has some of the best views in the country. Whether you’re looking to add a swimming pool, enhance your landscaping or build a deck or patio, Kavin Construction can assist with all of your outdoor building needs, including spaces for sitting, cooking and watching TV.
Natural Wood Accents
More homeowners are swapping out light-colored siding for natural or composite wood. Wood accents blend in well with all types of styles, including the popular farmhouse and contemporary looks.
Aside from siding, natural wood can also be used on columns, front doors, fences and garage doors. If you’re not sold on wood, consider a different material such as stone, fiber cement or metal. Combining various materials and textures adds dimension and will give your Los Angeles home the curb appeal it deserves.
Front Porch Additions
If your Los Angeles lacks a front porch, you can add one with an addition. Homeowners are requesting this addition to add function and elegance to their home’s exterior. You can sit outside and enjoy your morning coffee or unwind with a glass of wine in the evening.
For dimension and personality, add stone to the porch gables or columns. These accents can transform a boxy, one-story home into a true masterpiece. Because there is a growing demand for attractive outdoor spaces, adding a porch will provide an average return of 84 percent!
Straight Lines in Place of Curved Lines
If you have ornate starburst windows, consider replacing them with modern, straight-line windows and accents. Straight lines provide a clean and modern look, particularly when used on porches, doorways and windows. You can even mix and match between vertical and horizontal lines for a multi-textured facade.
