Spring is almost here, which means now is the perfect time to start planning your exterior renovation! An exterior renovation can be a very involved process, and there’s a lot to consider during the planning stage. We’ll guide you along all the details, but here are a few big things to keep in mind as you’re getting your plans together.
Keep Purpose in Mind
Most people choose to get an exterior renovation for one reason: improving their home’s appearance! While a refreshed appearance is the first thing you’ll notice after your exterior renovation is completed, keep in mind how an exterior renovation can benefit you long-term. How do you interact with your home’s exterior? Have you ever wished there was better lighting outside at night? Have you ever wanted a larger porch to relax on in the summer? An exterior renovation is so much more than just appearances; it adds better functionality to the outside of your home as well.
Be Mindful of Trends
Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017 is a vivid lime green called “Greenery.” While this color may be striking at first, you may regret choosing the 2017 Color of the Year when a subtler color is chosen for next year. Try to imagine how you will enjoy your design choices a few years down the line. Generally speaking, the less flamboyant and odd the trend, the better it will age.
