806 Asian Exterior Design Photos

If you're looking to enhance your curb appeal, nothing packs a bigger punch than revamping your architectural design. Since it's the first thing visitors see, it makes or breaks your home's first impression — it can easily become the neighborhood star or the neighborhood dud. The exterior often reflects the overall style of the house and the family that lives there, so it sets the pace for the rest of your space. In the end, whether you have stone, wood, brick, steel or vinyl siding, make sure your materials, paint colors and overall asian design represent what you like and who you are. More

When you get ready to remake your exterior, it's important to consider all the components. If you're starting from scratch, you must first decide what architectural designs you prefer. There are several different options to choose from — including Victorian, mediterranean, Craftsman and midcentury modern — so do your research and determine which one reflects you and is reasonable given your space or current home. Once that's decided, it's time to consider the materials and color. Your overall style will help determine this, but your personal taste and resell ability should also be factors. Finally, add some finishing touches for a personalized, lived-in look.

What exterior home style works for me?


Whether you're a traditionalist, minimalist or trendsetter, there is an architectural design style that will work for you. If you like an old-fashioned look, consider a Victorian, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, Tudor, Cape Cod or Craftsman home. For a sleek, modern approach, think about a Prairie style, art deco, modern or midcentury modern design. Or if you want your home to have regional character, go with mediterranean, Southwestern or tropical. In the end, consider your location, overall sense of style, budget and current home layout before making your final remodel plans.

What exterior home materials and colors should I use?


The materials you end up using are often determined by the overall style of the house. Traditional homes use more brick and wood shingles, while stone and metal siding are popular contemporary options. Although there is some leeway in the materials you use, be sure it accurately reflects your overall design. Budget is also a factor as well. Vinyl siding is a more affordable option, while stone will cost quite a bit more.

If you're not quite ready for a full-on remodel, you can easily swap out trim and paint colors and still make an impact. Unless you live in a Victorian or are part of a neighborhood where bold colors are common, try to pick a neutral primary color, like beige, brown or gray. If you want to stray from the norm with bright accents, try painting your front door or garage door something bright, such as red, green or blue.

How do I decorate my home exterior?


Although you want to avoid a kitschy final product, you can add a few decorative elements to spice up your home's asian architectural design. House numbers are a great way to add personality; you can try a unique font or brighter colors for a different look. Mailboxes, doormats and funky lighting also help enhance your house's character. And when the season rolls around, don't forget about holiday decorations and Christmas lights!
