Modern House Exterior Design: Get Your Home Exterior Ready for Summer

Modern House Exterior Design: Get Your Home Exterior Ready for Summer

If you’ve just completed an interior design project, it can be tempting to relax inside and call it a day. But during this time of year, as the heat begins to rise, outside is where you want to be! So, why not make some modern upgrades to the exterior of your home so you can enjoy your outdoors all summer long! Whether you have a traditional house or a modern house, subtle exterior design changes can go long way to increasing its visual appeal.

You can start the ball rolling with some minor touches, such as adding new cushions to your outdoor seating. But the real transformation of the exterior house design comes with a bit of extra work.

Take a look at our 7 suggestions on how you can enhance your exterior home design:

1. Update Fencing & Gates

You might think we’re biased, but it’s a fact that fencing can significantly boost the appeal of a home. In collaboration with a fence, gates can increase security and extend the amount of room kids, and pets have to play.

In addition to adding privacy and security, the right style of fencing can accentuate the architectural features of your home and add personal style and flair.

If you’re stuck on what fencing  option is best for your home, here are some suggestions:

  • White picket fences: a picket fence or wood fence accentuates more traditional or Hampton-style homes
  • Smartwood fences: Smartwood fencing boasts the natural look and feel of natural wood – without the maintenance
  • Bamboo fencing: the height of bamboo fencing provides privacy whilst transforming the yard into a tropical oasis
  • Aluminium slats: this popular fencing option provides corrosion resistance and can be produced in a wide range of colours and styles.
  • Brick walls: a brick wall provides privacy and security.
  • Steel fencing: Steel fencing is extremely strong, yet lightweight. modern railing fences made of iron and typically black.Tubular steel fences can be enhanced with decorative aluminum top circles, scrolls and crosses.

2. Add Garden Plants

Bright flowers and lush lawns not only look beautiful, but they also give a homely and inviting impression.

When choosing plants, opt for ones that are compatible with your location’s climate. If you are new to gardening, try using low-maintenance or native Australian plants.

If you don’t have much room in your garden, try lining your fencing with plants – this is also beneficial if you have an older fence you would like to cover.

You should check your garden every week and perform some basic maintenance, such as weeding. This will reduce the need for more involved maintenance down the road.

3. Enhance Your Existing Landscaping

Enhancing your property’s existing landscaping doesn’t have to be an invasive project. Many homeowners trying to keep the overall cost of their exterior improvements low find that a minor DIY project can have an outstanding impact.

Adding pebbles and decorative stones to your garden bed do a fantastic job at making plants stand out. Installing lawn and garden bed barriers create clean lines and help make yards look professionally finished.

Adding lighting is also a great DIY project which can enhance your garden. This can be achieved through porch lighting, floor lighting, lighting shone on your garden bed, or through fairy lights strung on fencing or in plants.

4. Upgrade Your Wooden Decking

If your outdoor decking requires updating, consider installing composite decking. This decking is ultra-low maintenance, available in a range of different colours and is designed for a modern, clean look. Thanks to its’ long lifespan and low maintenance requirements, it is also a cost-effective option.

When choosing the colour of your decking, consider the colours already being used in your home’s walls, furniture and surrounding fencing. It is usually best to select a colour that contrasts its surroundings to create depth and style.

5. Create an Entertaining Area

The best way to enjoy your outdoor area in summer is with an entertaining area. If you already have an outdoor area with shade, it could make a perfect spot to transform into a summertime entertaining area.

If you don’t have a shaded area to utilise, large shade umbrellas are a cost-effective solution to DIY an outdoor space. Then all you need is an outdoor lounge, coffee table and a few outdoor cushions and decor to create a modest oasis.

If you want to add something extra, a fire pit can be a great addition to your yard and can be enjoyed all year round.

A BBQ, pizza oven or outdoor kitchen are also awesome additions to outdoor areas.

6. Update your Front Door

When deciding on a new front door, think about matching the colour to the rest of your home’s exterior. If you have metal fences or wrought iron fencing surrounding your home, consider investing in a front door that incorporates the same metal. Furthermore, if your home has wood fencing or PVC fencing, consider getting a door in the same material and colour.

7. Repaint Your Home

Changing the colour of your home can transform how it looks and create exceptional curb appeal. If it’s been years since it was last painted, even just a fresh coat on either the walls, shutters, or wood fences can bring new life to your property.

Choosing your home’s colour is an integral part of the redecorating process. It’s important to choose a colour that compliments the look and style of the home.

Larger homes usually don’t look as good with dark colours and need bright colours. If you are in a wooded area, a lighter colour will help the house pop out from the surroundings, or a natural colour will help it blend into the landscape.

Also, consider the style of the home as some designs look better with specific colours – red and browns for Spanish inspired homes, natural colours for wood homes and bright colours for modern home exteriors.
