Improve The Looks Of Your Home with a Metal Roof
Many people think metal can look cold or uninviting when it comes to residential roofs and siding. While this may be true in some circumstances, there are ways to augment your metal roof with some added curb appeal. From adding doors and porches to incorporating landscape lighting, here are some ways to boost the curb appeal of your metal roof home in Burlington.
Select the Right Color Combo
Choosing the right color is the best way to improve the aesthetics of your metal home. When you select the perfect hues, you can customize the entire look. One technique you can try is to use contrasting shades at both the bottom and the top, known as a wainscot. Do your research on colors and keep in mind that some colors degrade faster than others.
Choose an Attractive Metal Roof Style
Metal roofing is available in a multitude of styles, from regular to boxed eave to vertical and metal shingle roof. The type of roof you choose will depend on your home’s architectural style.
Add Shutters, Doors and Windows
Adding these elements to your home will make it more appealing in a variety of ways while adding visual interest. Each one of these elements comes in a variety of styles and colors, so choose wisely to match your home’s style.
Examples of cool doors, for instance, can include:
- Barn doors
- Double front doors
- Glass patio doors
- Overhead doors
- Embellished doors
Choose expansive windows such as picture or bow windows to add more natural light to your interiors. Shutters add character and charm to your property, offsetting the sterile nature of the metal.
Add a Porch
Homes with wrap-around or farmer’s porches add curb appeal, so get creative in terms of styles, colors, and materials. You may also want to add some wainscoting in brick or stone for a high-end, elegant look. You can also switch up your siding using contrasting colors to draw the eye.
Add Landscape Lighting
Strategic placement of landscape lighting will add a touch of elegance to any metal building. Position it so as to highlight your home’s architectural elements, while adding drama and character. For instance, you could add sconces or a farmhouse lighting style.
Add Outdoor Entertainment Spaces
Adding entertaining spaces outdoors also acts to boost your curb appeal. These spaces can be hardscapes such as outdoor kitchens and patios or landscapes such as gardens. Plus, when you add outdoor landscaping, you can soften and enhance the look of your metal home. Be sure to plant plenty of flowers, bushes, shrubs, and trees.
