First impressions matter. Especially when it comes to curb appeal. Curb appeal is the attractiveness of a home when it’s being viewed from the street. We’ve all seen newly built houses that are still surrounded by an unfinished landscape instead of a brand-new garden, or homes that still look like a construction site years after completion.
This may seem like something you deal with after you finish building, but if you keep curb appeal in mind when building, there will be less to do when you finish. Here are some things to consider when it comes to curb appeal:
This should come as no surprise, but a landscaped garden instantly ups your home’s curb appeal, this includes garden beds, paths and lawn. Luckily for you some of our developer partner will assist with front gardens and fencing when you build your new Commodore Homes.
When planning your home make sure you plan to have some sort of feature out the front. This can be a feature wall or featured entryway or even a feature garden bed or porch. Focal features can take your curb appeal to the next level. With of our Commodore Homes, you have a choice of six different elevations to choose from so you can make sure your home has a unique look and feel.
The roof isn’t something that is normally considered when it comes to curb appeal but go outside right now –well after you finish this article– and you’ll see that the roof can make up the vast majority of the façade of a home. So, there are two choices you have to make, the first is between corrugated iron or roof tiles. Corrugated iron gives a home a more modern and sleeker look while roof tiles add to that homey feel. The next choice is the colour, lucky for you both corrugated iron and roof tiles come in a range of colours, so chat with our prestart consultants about what colour roof will best suit your home.
There are many ways to improve the curb appeal, but the most important thing is to start thinking about it early, and consider your home’s curb appeal at the early stages of planning. From prestart to hand over we Homes will help you every step of the way, whether it’s your first home or not, Commodore homes has what you need.
