Trend Alert: Here's What's Popular In Exterior Design

by Ronald Bixby 12/12/2022

Whether you’re remodeling or building a brand new home, staying up to date on the latest trends can be an enormous source of inspiration. While not every trend will be perfect for you, knowing what’s popular can help you find the best possible options for your own home. Here are the biggest trends in exterior design to know right now:

Windows, Windows, Windows

One trend that is certainly not going anywhere is adding extra windows. Windows can change the entire facade of your home so they are just as important to exterior design as they are to the interior. The key to using this trend is to choose windows that match your home’s original style and architecture. This will keep the improvements from looking dated in the future and add timeless charm to your home.

Creamy White Paint

Some things just never go out of style and white paint is no exception. The best thing about white painted exteriors is that they don’t have to be boring or bland. White comes in dozens of different shades, which also means it will go with any other color, so take your time to choose the best white for your exterior. Think about your existing trim and architectural elements and you’ll have a striking new look with a classic color scheme.

Statement Garage Doors

Contrasting garage doors are a major trend in exterior design. The simplest examples are homeowners who opt for a dramatic color to include in architectural details and the garage door to make it cohesive but bold. Try a bright color or sleek black for a modern vibe. Other garage door enhancements like wooden facades, adding windows and other decorative elements are becoming more popular as well.

Interesting Front Doors

While colored front doors used to be all the rage, architectural interest and shape is the trend designers are loving now. Instead of a bold, bright color for your front door, try replacing the door entirely with a completely fresh look. Neutral and dark colors with natural wood tones and iron are popular, as are double doors and archways. Adding architectural interest with your front door while keeping it cohesive with the rest of the home’s design is a trendy yet timeless way to enhance the entire exterior.

These are just a few major trends in exterior design right now. However, they are an excellent place to begin if you need inspiration for your own home build or remodel.

Hi, I'm Ronald Bixby and I'd love to assist you. Honor, Respect, and Integrity...These are qualities that were instilled in a small town in upstate NY and reaffirmed in the US Navy. I was raised in a town called Horseheads. After graduating High school, I decided to see the world and I went into the Navy. Although I wanted to see the world, I ended up joining the submarine force and unfortunately, they don't have too many windows on subs! After getting out of the Navy, I found myself with an opportunity to get into the restaurant business and that's where I spent the next 30 years. I am blessed with an amazing wife, who is my rock, 4 beautiful daughters, and a son... Parenthood has a way of keeping you on your toes! However, thinking that I was missing something, I decided to make a change and started exploring the Real Estate business, and the more I looked into it, the more I knew this was the right profession for me. I like to help people and assisting a family buy or sell a home is a fantastic opportunity to do just that. If I can make someone half as happy as I am...it's a great day. Let me help you be happy.
