Five Trends That Are On The Rise For Exterior Home Decor

| 18 July 2016

Each year we see new exterior home decor trends hit the market. They’re not all winners but we’ve come up with five of the best and most stylish trends that will add curb appeal to your home and even save you money on your utility bills.

Rising Trends For Exterior Home Decor

Green doors and windows

An exterior home decor trend that is on the rise this year is green doors and windows. No, you don’t have to order lime green windows – we’re talking about the environment. Look for products that are Energy Star rated to ensure you’re getting the most energy-efficient windows and doors on the market. The more eco-friendly you make your windows and doors, the more you’ll save on your utility bills. Green windows and doors are an investment that ends up paying for itself within a few years.

Transom windows

Windows above windows? Who knew this would be such a hot exterior home trend? These are windows that are set above a door transom. The transom is the strengthened crossbar that is found above a door or window and you’ll see many homes with this feature in the coming months. Transom windows are a great way to let in extra natural light and make for exciting decor.

Double front doors

For added drama, people are looking to double front doors, also known as French doors, to create a grand entryway for their homes. Instead of a traditional single front door, if you’re looking to upgrade your home’s curb appeal, try a double door. French doors can open inward or outward depending on the style of your entryway.

Bold front doors

Colourful front doors are on the rise this year with many homeowners opting to go for bold. With turquoise, electric blue and even bright orange, choosing an accent colour for your front door is a great way to compliment your home’s exterior. If you’re not ready to paint your entire home an exciting bold colour, you don’t have to. Simply paint your door and you’ll make your house look brand new.

Added glass for more class

So far this year we’ve seen doors with glass panels making an appearance. Adding glass panels to your front door is a great way to bring in as much natural light as possible into your home. Like the transom window, glass panels on your front door bring class and curb appeal to your property.
