If you have ever bought or sold a house, then you will have heard the term street presence. Your home’s street presence, or ‘curb appeal’ is basically the first impression your property gives from the front. All the exterior features of a home create the street presence, from the lawn and driveway, to the front door. The following are ideas that will ensure your home design stands out, with curb appeal that would impress any future potential buyer. They’re also vital to know when choosing from a range of house and land packages.
Painted weatherboard cladding
The Hamptons style of home design has increased massively in popularity over the last few years, and the look is being replicated in many home interiors and exteriors. Painted weatherboard cladding is one way to introduce the sought after Hamptons look to your home, and it is definitely a great way to increase the street presence of any house.
Vertical timber cladding
Timber cladding is an increasingly popular choice for finishing the outside of homes, or even just for adding a feature wall. It has multiple benefits that make it a good option; it offers design freedom, and is long-lasting and durable, and nice to look at too.
Red brick feature wall
Feature walls are the perfect way to make a statement on the front of your home, giving your property that extra ‘wow’ factor and enhancing its street presence. Red brick is popular for many modern elevation styles as well as the industrial-chic look, making it a great way to set the tone for the rest of your home.
If you are wanting your home to give off beachy vibes, then sandstone-look tiles are perfect. Nothing compares to the elegant and natural look of stone, and it can definitely help to give any home that extra bit of appeal. You could also use concrete-look or stone-look tiles for a different style!
If you are wanting the exterior of your home to have a more natural finish, then adding some feature stone cladding could be the answer. Using stone cladding can add visual interest and really make your home stand out on the street. There are lots of colours to choose from, so you’re sure to find something to suit your chosen style.
Ever thought about drawing the eye upwards with your elevation? To achieve a traditional/classic look for the front design of your new home, consider adding a feature gable with weatherboard cladding. It may seem like a minor detail, but the effect it can have on the overall curb appeal of the home is huge.
Wider front door
The front door of a home is more important than most people think! It’s a feature that can really draw the eye. So, it makes sense to opt for a front door that adds style and street presence to your home. If you have space and want to really make a statement, consider opting for a wide hallway with a 1200mm feature entry door.
Windows are a big part of any home, and they can add a whole different vibe to a front elevation. Consider including corner windows, and other feature window layouts, for an extra modern edge.
