Hello everyone, I am looking for some honest feedback on the color and style choices used on this house. I will explain why after I get some feedback, because I dont want to influence anyone opinion. Thank you in advance for your feedback!
I can't really tell how close the tree is, but a tree that size is usually good thing and saves on energy bills due to the shade. The color is fine. The siding at the peaks could be a bit darker to bring out an offsetting of materials. I was surprised to find out that the quickest selling house color is yellow. Overall, nice looking house.
Just my thoughts, please do not be offended... The colors are fine but boring and the accent siding needs to be darker or of more contrast. As far as the style I do not care for the garage in the front. My home is the same way for practical reasons but I find the appearance unbalanced and unappealing. That said it is hard to comment on style because the surrounding housing can have a lot of influence on what looks right. I love big trees but the one in that front yard is way to big for the yard and the house. It would be a great loss but removing that tree and a little landscaping would really add to the appeal of that house.
The siding exposure is too narrow for the tall fascade. I don't like the two colors or the two different , redundant, exposures. If you want to change out the top siding, use something decorative, like scallops to break up the monotony. The tall section with the windows should have a horizontal break above the second floor window. Above that you would make the design transition. Same for the garage fascade.
Thanks for the opinions. I'll post a "before" picture below. We recently replaced the windows, roof and siding. Changing the garage layout, window size/location, roof shape, etc were not an option. We had to work with what we had. It seems like every house in the neighborhood is going with one of three shades of tan, so we wanted ours to "pop" a little more. We also didnt want to rip down the stone veneer so our color choices were a little limited. I did all the window/door trim myself, and except for the headers, it was all my design. I really like the overall look of the house now, but my wife doesnt. She doesnt think the colors match at all. Neighbors have stopped to compliment us, but she thinks they are just being nice and laughing behind our backs. lol I just wanted to get some outside opinions to see which one of us is nuts!:laughing:
I liked it better the way it was. It looked much more stately - for lack of a better term. The window/garage trim was nice. If I was to change what you had before the upper contrasting trim would have been it. To me it looks like a house that had some expensive touches taken down to a stock style builders home.
Are you sure you don't have your pictures reversed.....
