New construction continues to build, quite literally, into 2021. A new construction home offers all the amenities and must-haves that a traditional home would have, but with more energy-efficient materials and construction methods. Plus, with a custom home from Viking Custom Homes, you can make it truly your own by tailoring it to your lifestyle. While no one can tell you how to make your home “you,” viewing the latest new construction exterior trends can inspire your thoughts on this part of the house.
Natural Color Scheme
Natural tones have seen their heyday in different parts of the house for quite some time and continue to be trendy for 2021. Natural colors are subdued and almost earthy; light gray, stone, and muted greens and blues are common choices. Choosing an exterior paint color from this realm will generally produce a calm, gentle effect.
Meanwhile, the trend to make new construction homes a statement piece is also trending. If you’re not interested in going monochromatic (black, grey, and white), then a dark paint color may be suitable for you. Dark blue is the most common choice for homes that wish to stand out.
If you really are gung-ho about making your house a bold statement, you might want to paint your house black. That’s right, black roof, black siding, and black trim. All-white siding and trim has been done plenty of times, which is why some bold homeowners decide to turn it around with all-black. Be aware, though, that a dark house exterior may make your home more expensive to cool in the summer.
Another new construction exterior trend we will likely see is homes with contrasting colors. For example, white houses may create contrast with black trim, black roofing, and a black front door. Even if your home is not monochromatic, a pop of color via the front door is a common feature of today’s homes. If your home is dark blue, a bright red door will cheer your house up.
On a broader scale, today’s new construction exteriors will often showcase a transitional house style. Cottages, farmhouses, tudors, and ranches are traditional, but now one can take elements from any of these and mix it with contemporary elements.
