Making Your Home Stand Out

When living in a suburb, the exterior of your home is often similar to the others in your neighborhood. Whether it’s because of city or state regulations, or the way the building company operates, you may feel like your home blends in just a little too much with your neighbor’s. Thankfully, there are a few small design changes you can make during your build or remodel to make your home stand out.

Although you may be limited with the style and color scheme of your home, you can completely change the look with some exterior tweaks. For instance, a well-lit front porch with a beautiful, inviting door and decorative railings will stand out in a row of standard-looking houses.

Once you enter the interior of your home, the options become endless with design style. Though it may be difficult for you to change the exterior, it’s what’s on the inside that matters. Your flooring, paint, lighting, hardware and countertops can all help create a cohesive look in the style you love. If you love the atmosphere of a beach-home, you can still have that, even if you aren’t near the beach – and it’ll be sure to stand out against the carpeted, white-walled house next door. It’s all about those carefully-planned, small touches that make your home unique.
