Before you begin to plan out an investment in your home’s exterior design, you should consider incoming exterior design trends for summer 2021. While an exterior redesign can boost your home’s curb appeal, you’ll want to personalize your home to match your style while remaining modern to current design trends. Fisher Lumber predicts that there will be an increase in front porches on household exteriors, an uptick in architectural-style doors, and an increase in wood accents placed on select portions of a home’s exterior. By including these exterior design elements into your home’s redesign, you can stay on-trend and have the most updated home in the neighborhood. Read on to learn more. 

Add a Front Porch to Your Exterior Design

Homeowners are opting to build out custom front porches to enjoy summer thunderstorms under the shelter of their patio and increase their living space. For some homeowners, these front porches can even be built from custom wood pergolas with shade or have an entirely brand new deck design with lumber supplied through Fisher Lumber. Whichever your choice in materials for building out your new front porch, Fisher Lumber offers same-day lumber delivery within a 50-mile radius of Rockville, MD, and can be the sole source of your materials throughout your deck design and installation process.

Architectural and Craftsman-Style Doors

Homeowners are opting for an emerging trend in Architectural and Craftsman-style doors. These doors are complementary to many house styles and can increase the charm value on the exterior of your home. Since your front door is the focal point of your home, it’s critical to select a front door that sets your family apart in your neighborhood (in a good way!). Additionally, choosing a Craftsman-style door is an excellent choice for historic homes or new builds looking to add a classic Americana exterior door choice to their home.  

Beautiful, Natural or Composite Wood Details and Accents

Another emerging trend on the rise is highlighting architectural features of your home with beautiful, natural or composite wood accents and details. Whether you’re swapping out vinyl siding for composite wood accents above large exterior windows or opting to use natural wood against colonial brick, Fisher Lumber can supply many natural and composite wood finishes perfect for your home improvement projects this summer.
