When it comes to buying or selling a home, it’s all about curb appeal. With longer daylight hours and beautiful warm weather, the summer months are the perfect time to turn your attention to the exterior of your home. To get you inspired to spruce up the exterior of your home this season, your friends here at Horizon Stone have compiled a roundup of some of our favorite home exterior projects to inspire you. And, of course, we’d love to see you incorporate our manufactured stone, crafted in our Tennessee manufacturing facility, in your exterior renovation project.
Nothing welcomes guests out of the elements and into your home like a beautifully-designed porch or portico. Instantly upgrade the front of your home with a gorgeous entryway renovation. The Horizon Stone Ledgestone series adds texture, dimension, and depth to an inviting front porch. We also love how Ledgestone was used on this porch application on the bottom of the pillars to tie in the front of the home for a cohesive visual.
Expansive windows not only bring natural light into your home, but they also add visual appeal to the exterior of your home. Replacing your windows can improve energy efficiency and may even score you some income tax benefits. When selecting new windows, consider how the windows will impact both your exterior and interior design vision. To really make your windows enhance the exterior of your home, consider adding Horizon Stone as an accent above the window frames or surround a large feature window with veneer stone for high impact.
Often forgotten, garage doors are an important part of the exterior of your home. Well-designed garage doors can be a stunning exterior feature. On this craftsman-style home, we love how the garage doors are surrounded by our Craftsman Cottage style continued from the porch to provide design consistency. Manufactured stone can also be used as a stylish accent above the garage doors as well.
From the gentle curve of a yard island defined by Horizon Stone’s manufactured stone, to an outdoor fireplace fit for a king, landscaping is a key part of the overall home exterior. Quality landscaping not only increases your home’s value, but it also delivers the curb appeal that you- and your neighbors- appreciate.
