Everything is fresher in Spring, and after the interior Spring cleaning routine, it’s time for your exteriors to follow suit. Take the fast track to on-trend, in-style Spring design with HomeTask’s top five exterior house trends of 2018.
1. Grey Is Here To Stay
Don’t worry about a repaint that will look dated by the next season, grey exteriors are taking the world by storm and they’re not going anywhere, anytime soon. Such a neutral colour can be brought to life with any choice of trim colour, or hold onto a modern and elegant vibe with white. A window tint adds a luxurious feel to grey homes, while a petite white blind scheme can keep a homely modern vibe to your house. Grey exteriors make your gardens pop and add size and dimension to your home. Will you be choosing a pale or dark style?
Glossy steel trims against a matte painted weatherboard are modern and subtle all at the same time. Take it a step further with corrugated materials or self-patterned paints, and let your home speak for your personality. Gone are the days that the wow factor was left to the inside! Other classy ways to add texture to your exterior can be gaps in brick feature walls. Wooden laminate style garage doors against a brick exterior are an eye catching feature to any home and are a sure way to make you stand out in the neighbourhood.
3. Natural Materials
Not feeling the grey? No problem! Exposed brick and natural wood grain styles have returned to the forefront in 2018 and the natural look is forecast to stay on trend for quite some time. Paired with solid material patio furniture or bright coloured pots, this contrast brings the best of both worlds. The best part about the natural trend is that it might not even require much effort. Adding some wooden trim, or a deep clean of your exterior bricks could be enough to bring your exteriors into Spring 2018!
