"5 reasons why it’s important to have a great home facade"

Well-designed home facades blend seamlessly with the streetscape while also allowing for architectural innovation. At Masterton we understand this and that’s why we spend a lot of time designing our home facades so you can choose the perfect one for you. Here’s 5 reasons why it’s important to have a great home facade:

#1 Increases the attractiveness and therefore, value of your home

This is pretty self-explanatory but the more attractive your facade the more attractive your home. And the more attractive your home, the more value that’s imbued upon it.

Luckily at Masterton all our facades are well thought out and suitable in our changing landscape. We aim to build tomorrow’s homes today so we make sure we design facades that won’t go out of date. This said you also need to choose a facade you can see yourself looking forward to coming home to, which brings us to our next point.

#2 Reflects your personality

Choosing a facade is important. It must say something of your own style, while at the same time the design needs to draw on architectural principals eg ensuring windows are proportional and that texutural elements break up flat surfaces. Lucky Masterton has you covered in the second area so all you have to decide on is which of our amazing facades best suits your personality.

The facade of your home is an important expression of your style and how you feel about your home. In some ways it is a status symbol because the way you choose your facade has a lot to do with how you imagine being seen in your home.

#3 Gives a nod to your interiors

When choosing your facade, don’t think of it as a separate design but as an integrated aspect of your home. Many people don’t think of their facade when building their home—or they think of it last—after all, you’re not looking at it when you’re inside. But your facade is an important element of making your home look and feel finished. Consider your possible interior choices and have the facade reflect these in theme, colour and texture. This will give your overall home design a gorgeous flow through effect.

#4 Increases street presence

Looking at your street scape is another important part of choosing your design. You don’t want your home to look the same as every other house on the street, however, you don’t want it to stand out like a sore thumb either.

Make sure when considering your facade you think about all vital components including the roof, windows (which make up about 20% of the facade), doors, fences and even your garage roller door. Think about how your interior choices and preferences will affect facade design. Eg you’ll want blinds, shutters or sheer curtains on your front windows to enhance the look of the house from the street.

Don’t forget landscaping also greatly affects your facade. Simple and less expensive items like feature pots and flower boxes can add a whole lot of appeal to your home. Ask yourself how much time you want to spend in the garden before committing to your landscaping plan and also consider which landscaping features will stand the test of time.

#5 Makes your home one you love to come home to

At the end of the day you need to choose a facade that makes your home one you love returning to. Luckily at Masterton we’ve done the hard work for you and all you have to do is to pick which amazing facade you want for your dream home.

We have a huge range of facades available at Masterton Homes and you can come and see them in person at one of our display villages.
