When you have a custom home built, it is very important that you have personality in it. You want to show off who you are in the build, along with getting the house you want out of it. If you aren’t sure where to begin personalizing your Huntsville custom home, then begin with the outside. Make it special to you so each time you come home, you smile. Here are a few ideas that can make that house into your dream home before you ever step foot inside.
Think About the Porch
To some people, the porch is meaningless; just a simple gateway from the outside to the inside of your home. However, to others, this is the best place to create an amazing first impression. If you fall into the latter category, then think about how to spice it up. Do you want a small, cozy porch that welcomes guests directly into your home? Or do you want a larger porch that you can sit on with your guests and talk, extending the comfort and personality of your home? Think about how you would use a porch if you had one, then speak with your Huntsville custom home builders to design the ideal porch for your dream home.
How Do You Use the Outside of Your Home?
Sit back and think about how you plan to use the outside of your home. Do you enjoy entertaining guests? Would a pool be in order, or would you much rather have an intimate sitting area where you and your guests can converse? If you want a place to sit down that is quiet, quaint, and peaceful, consider a small garden area. You can even add in a fountain or other small water feature so it does not take away from the ambiance of the arrangement. If you want a larger area where you can have a lot more activity, then a pool may be a great way to go.
On the flip side, would you want to entertain guests over a meal in the outdoor area of your home? If so, then perhaps a deck with an outdoor kitchen would be the best option. Imagine an outdoor stove, a grill, and even stunning granite countertops. You could cook up anything your heart desired, and entertain even your closest friends and family with ease. Another thing to consider if you like spending time outdoors.
Paint Your Home the Color You Love Most
One of the most intimate parts of creating your custom Huntsville home is picking the color that will coat your home. It seems like such an insignificant affair, but it really represents a lot. Think about what color you want the world to see for the next 10-20 years. That color is going to show the world a lot about you. Do you want something light and airy, or dark and stoic? What kind of impression do you want others to get when they look at your home? There are thousands of color options out there. Pick the one that speaks to you the most and represents who you really are. This is your home. Show it off!
