Top 5 House Exterior Renovation Trends for 2020

Larger windows

 The first big trend of this year for Auckland homes are the choice of larger windows on the exterior. Not only are they a popular design but they offer the potential for energy efficiency. This is because larger windows allow more light into the room to fill the house. This largely expels the need for as much artificial lighting, saving electricity costs. As people become increasingly environmentally conscious of their impacts, they are looking for new ways to integrate this into their homes.

 Not only are they a better choice for increased light efficiency but they can still be stylish too. They can be paired with shutter or sleek almost unnoticeable blinds for the evening. It is predicted that house renovators in Auckland will see a rise in more larger windows in new built properties.

Emphasis on longevity

 Auckland homeowners have grown tired of replacing and renovating so often and are looking for designs that are durable and require little refurbishment. Both Kleer and Foundry products offer great durability and longevity and are becoming common place in exterior designs.

House renovators in Auckland are also considering how their designs will have to adapt to them as they get older. Many people are designing ramps outside the front and back door to make it easier when they reach an old age. As homeowners become wiser on the market, they are implementing products and exterior functions that increase the longevity of the house.

Low-maintenance options

 As life becomes busier by the day for Auckland homeowners, the need for low-maintenance exteriors are becoming more and more prevalent. Simply put, people can’t be bothered to maintain their homes anymore because of everything else they have to do each day. They’d much rather spend time relaxing and enjoying life. As a result of this, homeowners are choosing lower maintenance options like Mid-America and Foundry.

The importance of sustainability

Not only are Auckland homeowners becoming increasingly environmentally conscious, but they are thinking about the sustainability of the products they are buying. This includes all the materials they are considering for the exterior renovations on their homes.

Many house renovators in Auckland are choosing materials such as stone which is not only sustainable, but also incredibly durable and low-maintenance. As you know from reading this article so far, this is everything an Auckland home renovator is looking for. Employing a sustainable approach to building is essential in our modern era where materials and resources are promising to become increasingly scarce.

Wood siding

 One of the biggest trends for the year so far is the emphasis on wooden sidings on the exterior. These options are durable, low-maintenance and can be sustainable if bought form the right producer. As mentioned before, these are all the elements of exterior design that Auckland homeowners are looking for in 2018.

Wood sidings offer great potential for traditional, innovative designs that really catch the eye. Without all the downsides of traditional wood that would frequently rot, warp or buckle.

If you’re looking to renovate a property this year, consider these trends in your planning. Not only is the emphasis this year on sleek and stunning designs, but also a more environmentally friendly approach.
