Hot Exterior Trends for Atlanta Area Homes in 2017

Spring is the best time of year to start exterior home improvement projects. Many homeowners are beginning to notice that the backyard is made up of highly underutilized space. They’re taking the initiative to create outdoor living areas that not only improve the aesthetic of the exterior of their property but the monetary value as well. Here are several hot trends for the exterior of your home that you may want to consider for 2017.

Stacked Stone Fireplace and Foundation

Stacked stone is taking its rightful place front-and-center in many areas from interior fireplaces to exterior fireplaces, interior and exterior accent walls, and even the foundation. The world has fallen in love with the aesthetic appeal of stacked stone, and we can easily see why!

Create an Outdoor Living Area

Build a structure with open walls or optional mosquito netting walls, and highlight it with an amazing outdoor fireplace. Take this idea a step further and create an entire area to cook food, eat, and relax in the great outdoors. Many homeowners love the idea of outdoor living areas because it helps them reconnect with nature after fighting in the concrete jungle all day.

Multi-Tier Deck

A deck is a great way to spend outside time with family. No one ever said that your deck had to be a boring rectangle stuck to the back of your home. Let us show you how we can design an amazing multi-tier deck to help facilitate all of your barbecues and other outdoor gatherings with family and friends.

New Siding

You can never go wrong with new siding to give your home a facelift. Vinyl siding needs to be replaced about every 15 years because it begins to lose its color due to oxidation. Take the initiative to replace your existing siding with a different color. Discuss colors with your HOA (Homeowner’s Association) before taking the plunge so you can make sure your chosen color is approved.

Paint the Exterior Accents

New siding means new accent colors for the porch rails, window and door trim, and the privacy fence. Be prepared to choose a new, unique accent color for your entry door as well. The new siding color may overshadow the existing color. Besides, the door needs to be updated from time to time anyway.
