When it comes to selling, first impressions are key – many buyers decide whether they love or hate a property before they even set foot inside the house.

Follow these exterior design trends to boost your kerb appeal and make buyers fall in love with your home .

Sustainable materials

With the growing concern about the future of our planet, it’s no wonder that sustainable materials are being used more and more in both interior and exterior design. Reclaimed roof tiles and bricks add character to your home and using sustainably sourced timber to add accents to the front of your home gives a contemporary look.


Keeping in natural

In line with the trend for sustainable materials, the colour palette for exterior trends is moving towards natural colours such as brown, green and grey. Freshen up your fences and decking with a lick of paint and add large outdoor plants and climbing roses for a modern but timeless exterior.


Lots of windows

The desire for a light and bright interior has been a popular trend over recent years, and one of the simplest ways to achieve this is by adding lots of windows. Not only does it make the inside of your home feel more spacious, large windows also give your property a lavish, modern look.


Exterior lighting

Adding lighting to your porch, paths, driveway and bedding areas can transform your outdoor space and give your home a luxurious and welcoming feel.
