Now is the perfect time to start planning and budgeting desired exterior renovations to your home for the coming year. This allows ample time to explore popular styles, browse color swatches, and define your own personalized look with high-quality products that exceed your expectations.

Looking for ideas to get started? Below are three home exterior trends taking over 2018.

The Mix & Match

In order to perfect the look and feel of a home’s exterior, more homeowners are mixing materials. This can result in a stunning contrast of textures, patterns, and materials. For example, a homeowner may utilize vinyl or fiber cement siding for the bulk of the job, with a small touch of stone or brick around the entryway to create a more distinguished look.

You can always talk with a representative from your siding company for some creative ideas on how to make the home pop from the exterior. While more elements are being mixed, vinyl is still a popular home exterior trend, for its low maintenance, and low-cost attributes.

Eco-Friendly Materials

Homeowners are looking to mix long-lasting durability with an eco-friendly appeal. This means going with more trusted, high-quality siding materials from the onset, such as James Hardie. This allows you to make a purchase you can be happy about, and trust that you won’t have to replace your siding again for many years.

Wood siding is also a durable and sustainable choice. While vinyl is still a tried and true staple, there are more creative ways than ever before to revamp the exterior of your home.

Accent Points That Distinguish the Home

Another of the home exterior trends taking over 2018 is creative use of your accent points. This may include the soffits and fascias, gutters, and windows.

Painting your home’s trim a complimentary color can make the exterior pop. A tasteful and elegant design on your home’s garage door can also do the trick. This approach can add a contrast that will look beautiful for years to come.
