Selecting the Exterior Style

Submitted by Capstone Homes on

Your home’s floor plan isn’t the only selection you should focus on — you need to think about the exterior, too! After all, your home’s exterior design and its landscaping are what define your curb appeal. By focusing on some essentials, you can ensure your home looks just as good on the outside as it does on the inside.

Understanding Your Options

At Capstone, we offer traditional, modern, farmhouse, and craftsman exterior styles for our floor plans. These exteriors offer different types of siding, posts, and other features. Each floor plan comes with suggested styles, but as a custom builder, you can choose your own finish and color to better match your preferred look. This includes using stone or upgrading the siding to get your desired appearance.

Factors to Consider

Aside from your own personal preferences, there are some other factors that can help guide your exterior selections. For example, you should generally ensure your exterior is architecturally compatible with the rest of your neighborhood. Make sure the exterior matches your interior and that its functionality complements your lifestyle. Don’t forget about the windows, either, as their color can have a big impact on the overall look of the home.

Customization and Personalization

By customizing your home exterior, you can create a truly personalized space that is all yours. Don’t be afraid to look into different combinations that will allow you to achieve your desired look and curb appeal. Our design specialists will help you make good picks and bring your selections to life.
