Exterior Home Design Trends - 2023

When it comes to paint, color, and the use of materials in exterior home design for 2023, several exciting trends are emerging. Here are some of the most notable design trends we're seeing.

Bold Earthy and Natural Tones

Earthy and natural tones continue to hold their ground as popular choices for exterior home design. Soft shades inspired by nature, such as warm browns, muted greens, and soothing beiges, provide a timeless appeal and a harmonious connection with the environment. These colors work well with various architectural styles and lend a sense of warmth and serenity to the home's exterior.

The new color scheme beautifully complements the architectural elements of the house, giving it a refreshed and stylish appearance.

Contrasting Material Combinations

Mixing and contrasting different materials is a trend that remains strong in 2023. Combining materials such as wood, metal, stone or a bold painted siding creates a visually striking effect, adding character and dimension to the home's exterior. Homeowners are loving the pairing of sleek painted siding or stucco with warm wooden elements.

Dark Accents and Monochromatic Schemes

Dark accents and monochromatic color schemes are increasingly popular in exterior home design. Deep shades like charcoal gray, navy blue, or black are used to create a sense of drama and sophistication. Pairing dark hues with lighter or contrasting elements, such as white trim or brightly colored doors, adds visual interest and creates a modern and elegant look.

Bold Contrasting Color Blocking Schemes

In addition to monochromatic schemes we've seen an increase in requests for bold, contrasting color schemes. These schemes utilize vibrant and contrasting colors in distinct volumes or "blocks", creating a visually striking and modern look that offers more dramatic appeal.

Maintenance Free Material Options

Homeowners are still seeking maintenance-free material options for their homes. Homeowners don't want the regular upkeep and added expenses of traditional maintenance-heavy materials like wood and painted surfaces. They are opting for more resilient exterior home finish options.

The year 2023 brings a diverse range of design trends for exterior home design regarding paint, color, and the use of materials. From bold and vibrant colors to earthy and natural tones, homeowners have the freedom to express their unique style and personality. Textured finishes, sustainable materials, and contrasting combinations further elevate the visual appeal of homes, creating stunning facades.
