Top Exterior Design Trends of Autumn 2017
The exterior is an often neglected or easily overlooked part of the house. If it ever gets redecorated or organized, it is usually a low-budget option and something that needs repair. Recent years, though, have shown that outdoor space is gaining more popularity when it comes to following the newest design trends and some designers go as far as to promote it as an extension of the home. That’s why most of the styles and ideas will try to imitate your interior environment in order to break the obvious barrier separating the two.
Redecorating your outdoor space is something you should look forward to because not only will it provide you with an extra area for relaxation, entertainment, and hobbies, but it’s also a durable and lasting solution which will make your house more beautiful and attractive. What follows are the top design trends you can try out this autumn and revitalize the exterior of your house.
Aim for sustainability
Greenery will always be a positive attribute to your house, but one of the main reasons homeowners decide not to have it around is the high maintenance. This year’s trends in exterior design take that into consideration and promote ideas which will let you enjoy the impressive nature around your house with minimum time invested in its care.
Low-maintenance gardens are all the rage right now with water-savvy plants and stone pathways. The best thing is that those plants come in all sizes, shapes, and colors meaning you can combine them in layers and different styles.
Hygge up your backyard
The Danish hygge philosophy focused on coziness has expanded to the outdoor space, specifically to those areas used for sitting and entertaining, like your backyard. Using natural materials like wood and stone will help you create a soothing atmosphere while keeping the modern elegance and upbeat style.
The center of this kind of décor should be around the spot which will bring people together, such as maybe an outdoor fireplace or a lavish sitting area. Use plants with big leaves to emulate the feeling of being sheltered and flowers with pleasant smells to surround yourself with a comforting mood, just like hygge suggests.
Colors of the exterior
When it comes to painting your house, this year’s trend allows the classics like all white or all dark gray. However, if you prefer to be bold and different this season, feel free to go with millennial pink. The whole world is crazy about this shade for some time now, and it simply refuses to go away. In case you don’t want to paint the whole house but would like to freshen it up a bit, paint your front door in a different color so it stands out.
Another smaller but effective solution is to paint the trim, window frames, and doors all in one color, for example, black for extra elegance. If you decide on the colors dominating your interior, you can’t go wrong since this year’s trend is all about blending in the outdoor space with the rest of your house.
Build your safe haven
Rustic design and organic construction are very trendy in 2017, and they’re not going away anytime soon. Outside space is ideal for building structures which will combine well with nature and outdoor greenery. Timber decks are an excellent solution that will bring you extra space with maximum commodity.
Companies like Correct Constructions have years of experience and dedication to quality and what they advise is for homeowners to work closely with professionals they hire so you can “make your dream a reality”. Decorating your deck with the barbecue grill will allow you to transfer the social events from your kitchen to the deck, thus creating a more relaxing and friendlier environment.
Following trends doesn’t mean changing everything all the time, sometimes it can be enough to rearrange the elements of décor or add a few new and interesting details. With this year’s trends, it is easy to participate in the redecorating of your outdoor space due to the promotion of sustainable and natural additions. So, before the year’s over, try to spend some portion of your time organizing and planning your exterior with some professional help, of course, to make it perfect and effective. After all, when all the renovations are over, you will be blessed with a fabulous outdoor area that will soothe you with its peaceful and inviting charm.
