First impressions count, and so your home’s exterior is where it all begins. Yes, it’s about having street appeal that makes you proud (and neighbours envious), but more importantly, it’s about ensuring that your home is a true expression of your style. There are so many aspects to your new home’s externals that you’ll select on your Clarendon journey with The Lifestyle Studio... everything from external paint colours to roof tiles and garage door.
Our Facade Styler tool can offer guidance and help to inspire your choices. Think colours, think profiles, think materials… think what will make you feel good every time you come home. Take your time and enjoy customising your new home and bringing it to life.
TIPS & TRICKS
Choose a roof you’ll love
As well as settling on the ideal roof colour, consider tile profile, texture and how your roof works with all your home’s other features.
Consider the colour your exterior walls will be and whether your home has a certain look you want to achieve.
To match or not to match?
When it comes to roofing, guttering, fascias, downpipes or cladding… do you choose the same colour, or contrasting colours?
Take a close look at display homes, online or magazines for inspiration. Seeing your ideas already in existence can be very helpful!
Make your garage door a feature
The whole facade of your home should make a statement, but your garage door has a chance to really add some wow factor and complement the other facade features.
Take durability into account, but also other aesthetics of your home’s look, including your roofing system’s colour scheme.
Try on a few doors for size
Selecting your front entry door that will greet the world, and welcome you home every day, requires a bit of trial.
Classic, traditional or contemporary? What’s your style? And don’t forget to put some thought into the door furniture that accompanies it.
Colour can say so much
The colour palette you select for your home’s facade speaks volumes about your personal style.
Neutral, bright, bold, daring, soft tones or strong contrasting colours… explore your options and see what feels right for you (and looks good in daylight, evening-lit, and when the garden grows!).
