It is important to realise that any kind of renovation is never simple, there are always many different layers involved. Ensuring your designs perfectly solve your most pressing issues in the most effective way possible will kick start your project in the right direction. Choosing an architect, selecting a builder, getting your planning permissions straight and living alongside workers for a period of time are just part and parcel of having an extension. By ignoring the inevitable, one of these elements may come back to bite you
You want outstanding curb appeal that makes your home feel welcoming and defined. Of course, you have landscaping and a nice front door and what not, but the exterior siding is really what determines how your home looks. It defines the personality of the building but is not purely decorative. Picking the right siding for your home is a delicate balancing act between good looks, durability, maintenance, and affordability.
Mixed materials on the same plane are becoming standard, especially on the front of the home. Texture is trendy, and that is what mixed siding is all about. The trend is the result of the recent shift toward home exterior designs complimenting the natural environment. And we do not mean log cabins are popping up on every corner. We are talking about contemporary exteriors with a rustic charm. This is achieved using different styles of the same siding, such a combination of shiplap and cedar shake siding, in the same color. Using vinyl with stone or brick accents, for example, is another approach that instantly lends to a more custom, high end feel without the price tag of natural stone.
Yet urban architects have often paid scant attention to the potential cognitive effects of their creations on a citys inhabitants. The imperative to design something unique and individual tends to override considerations of how it might shape the behaviours of those who will live with it. That could be about to change.
