When most people think about home renovations they most likely think of a kitchen or bath remodel but a fresh coat of paint to your home’s exterior can transform your space and add serious curb appeal. Whether you like a timeless classic exterior or a modern spin on the farmhouse trend, your home’s exterior is an opportunity to showcase your personal style. Here are some more design trends to watch for in 2021, according to Brick and Batten.

  • Creamy White Paint
White paint. Yup. The right color white paint will never go out of style. Whites can be tricky with LRV and undertones but if you find the right shade that works with your fixed elements, white exterior paint is definitely timeless and classic but also updated. Pairing a beautiful white color with wood accents is hard to top!

  • Add a Pergola to Your Home
If your home doesn’t already have a large porch, it doesn’t mean you should miss out on sitting outside and waving to your neighbors. A pergola will not only add covering for shade but takes your curb appeal up a notch. Whether it’s a visor type garage pergola or a modern pergola over a porch, it’s time for you to get one!

  • Contrasting Garage Doors
Well-made garage doors with architectural details like windows and paneling should be celebrated, not hidden. One way to highlight your garage doors as a design element is to paint them a contrasting color. 

  • Interesting Architectural Doors
Your door should be the focal point of your home. In 2021, we still expect to see people using bright paint colors to show personality through their home’s front door. However, neutral-color doors in a wood tone or iron with unique architectural designs will start to take over.

  • Front Porches
The back porch has its time to shine with grilling and large family dinners; however, gone are the days of a tiny stoop in the front. In 2021, you will continue to notice a shift to the front porch as well.
