Brothers Remodeling Experts Top 8 Home Exterior Trends for 2021

With the new year comes an excellent opportunity to make changes to your home. And what better way to make an impact than increasing curb appeal by updating your home's exterior? With a focus on natural tones and outdoor living, these home exterior trends are ones we expect to see grow in popularity through 2021.

1. Colors Found in Nature

With a wide array of colors available in vinyl and fiber cement siding, homeowners can choose from just about any color imaginable. But in 2021, we expect to see more homeowners choosing earthy shades inspired by the forest and sea, such as browns, dark blues, and forest greens.

2. Black Accents

As with home interiors, you can incorporate black accents on your home's exterior for a sleek and modern look. While all-black siding would be dark and overwhelming, when paired as an accent color with natural taupe and bright whites, matte black is a great way to visually update your exterior. Consider adding this popular accent on window and door trim, downspouts, metal accent roofs, soffits, columns, and garage doors.

large windows3. Larger Windows

Having spent much more time indoors in the past year, many homeowners are looking for ways to bring more natural light inside. There are many ways to make the most of natural light in your home, from skylights to large bay windows, French doors, and even accordion doors.

4. Straight Lines

While arched windows are still a beautiful design feature on many homes, in 2021, we expect to see more homeowners choosing minimalist straight line window designs that add a modern flair to the house. When paired with the black accents mentioned above, straight lines can completely change a home's look.

5. Textured Siding

With manufacturing innovations in vinyl and fiber cement siding, these materials can mimic shakes, board and batten, shiplap, and many other designs initially made from wood. Create more texture on your home by including these unique siding designs on dormers, entryway arches, and even garages to add visual interest.

porch6. Front Porches

The past year has changed the way we interact with those around us, and many homeowners are realizing the utility of a front porch. It's a great spot to say hello to neighbors walking by and to get out of the house without actually leaving. From small front porches to those that wrap around to a back deck, we expect to see more homeowners creating outdoor spaces in the coming year.

7. Pergolas

Just as front porches are growing in popularity, upgrading any outdoor space is a useful trend for 2021. Many homeowners are finding pergolas to be the perfect way to make a patio space more comfortable with added shade and privacy. But pergolas are also an aesthetic element that adds curb appeal to your house. For example, consider adding a visor pergola over your garage door.

8. Natural Wood

Often used in farmhouse design aesthetics, natural wood is becoming more popular for contemporary home exteriors as well. However, this doesn't mean splurging and dealing with the maintenance of natural wood siding for your entire home. Try out wood or lower maintenance composite on columns, the front door, soffits, and even garage doors to take advantage of this trend.

Whether you want to go with the trends or have your own unique vision for your home, Brothers' remodeling experts are excited to help you get started. Schedule a consultation to discuss your project and get recommendations from our exterior remodeling experts.
