Exterior House Design Trends 2019

2019 colours attr Hebel

As Christmas 2018 is upon is it is timely to look at trends for house exteriors in the New Year. Exterior colours will be dark and bold, such as shades of charcoal, black, dark blue, dark green and dark red in combinations of primary and accent colours, creating a dramatic effect. Matte black is growing in popularity for exteriors, interiors and even for homewares. The classic white exterior with black trim is another colour trend gaining traction and be ready for the neutral shades too, greys and blues convey warmth and comfort.

During 2019 you will see more combinations of textures and finishes creating a contrast. The image of a home designed by Solar Solutions Design below captures the effect of combining materials.  Stone, cement and timber can be used together for a visually striking mishmash.

2019 textures atr Hebel

Outdoor living spaces have dominated consumer interest as homeowners seek more lavish, useable adjuncts to home interiors. Outdoor amenities such as kitchens with covered roofs, designer outdoor furniture, portable heaters and fire pits will grow in popularity. Designing spaces to allow for year round outside living will be a trend in 2019.

Added to this is the effect of a growing focus on physical and spiritual wellness. In the coming year outdoor dining and living areas will be integrated with meditation areas, zen gardens and peaceful water features, creating a feeling of peace and well-being.

Another strong trend is a distinct shift towards sustainability that is being felt across the industry. Materials, design, heating, cooling – all aspects of house building will be considered through the lens of environmental concerns and sustainability.

The Finishing Touch wish all their clients and followers a very happy Christmas and look forward to continuing to supply top quality decorative mouldings to quality home builds in 2019.
