Inclusions to enhance your home’s street appeal

You should never underestimate the power the exterior of your home holds. Not only does it create a long lasting impression, it’s the first thing you see when you come home and it’s a part of your home that greets you every single day. Enhancing the street appeal of your home doesn’t need to cost extravagant amounts, but it will definitely add value to your home if you ever decide to sell it later down the track. Read on to find out what must-have inclusions will enhance your street appeal. 


Make sure your front door is a stunner and upgrade it to a sophisticated 1200mm wide hinged front entry door in a charming door profile. This addition to your home’s exterior creates an effortless statement piece and is a must-have for any new home. We also recommend opting for 600mm pull handles in a round or square profile and a double cylinder deadlock that matches to complete the look.


Your garage door may not seem like a top priority when enhancing your street appeal, but once you take into consideration how much of the facade your garage door makes up, it’s easy to understand why upgrading this element would enhance your home’s exterior. A higher garage door creates an illusion of a taller, larger home while higher feature windows encourage more light to stream through your home, all while making a statement on your facade.

Beautiful roof lines are an important part of your home’s visual look. Every day as your roof’s striking angles are set against blue sky or sunset orange, you’ll be glad you enhanced your street appeal with this luxury option. Choose a beautiful Atura low profile concrete roof tile in a range of colours to match your home.


Increasingly over the last several years, high ceilings have become a popular, must-have selection for new builds, particularly ceilings with display home style 2750mm high ceilings. Not only is this a luxurious inclusion that creates a sense of space to the interior of your home, it creates a taller home, meaning the exterior of your home gains extra height. This subtle inclusion can be the difference between a nice home, and a magnificent one. If you’re building a single storey home, you can take your entryway to the next level with a stunning 3000mm ceiling height.


At Clarendon Homes, we want to make your building experience as stress-free and as affordable as possible, which is why we include the concrete of an integrated porch as a standard inclusion on all Clarendon homes. This saves you money in the long run as we take care of your concreting needs. Additionally, we also include the concrete of an integrated alfresco in all of our homes too, so that you can focus on what’s most important.


Lastly, consider upgrading your facade. The facade you select means everything when enhancing your home’s street appeal. Not only is the design important, but the materials you use can play a large role. Whether you want a combination of exposed brick and cladding, or complete render,  there are plenty of options to enhance your home’s street appeal. You may even want to consider the more affordable render look by using Hebel. This versatile building material gives you the look of render, without the price tag. Some of Hebel’s key benefits are that it’s a high quality product that reduces the time of your build, provides noise reduction and fire resistance, is energy efficient and eco-friendly.

No matter what kind of theme you want to achieve with your home, your facade should match for a cohesive look. For example, if you’re on a budget and want a Hamptons style facade, consider selecting the Newport facade, while if you want the ultimate look, choose our Hamptons facade. If a more modern look is more your style, the Axis facade can get you a stunning look on a budget, whereas our Harvard facade takes your modern home to the next level! If a balcony at the front of your home is a must, check out our popular Gallery facade that doesn’t break the bank.
