Choosing the right facade materials for housing design projects

facade material

If you are designing housing units, there is usually a certain amount of restriction placed upon you when it comes to expressing yourself creatively. Usually, cost will play a significant role in what sort of design work you can do and features that you can add. By carefully choosing the facade materials, you are able to transform even the most boring and normal looking house into something that has style and substance to it. It is all about finding that right balance when it comes to the key features.

The choice of style

Perhaps the most important part of choosing the facade is deciding what style you are going to use. There are so many different variations and styles catered for in the market today that it can be hard to nail down one choice.

You want to give the housing some personality and a unique style that will make it appealing to the home owner. Is your preference more towards minimalist, traditional, contemporary or modern styles? The list goes on.

You need to factor in what sort of look will suit the surroundings and general location of where the homes are going to be.

Every designer will have certain materials that they like to use over others. You want to use materials that are going to stand out. You can find inspiration by driving around other housing estates in the area and seeing what works well, as well as what doesn’t.

This allows you to learn from other people’s mistakes and failures, as well as seeing the image in your head somewhat brought to life.

Which colours are representative of your design?

You want to choose colours for the facade that are easy to manage (i.e. easy to clean), as well as tying in with the design of the rest of the house and developing an aesthetically stylish finish.

You can even use different shades of the same colour to give off a layering effect that has some depth to it or you could go for a bold look that contrasts different darks and light colours along with varying textures.

Don’t forget about landscape and lighting

In order to complete the look of a house, it has to fit in with its surroundings. You can have the most beautifully designed house in the world, but if it doesn’t fit in, then it will not look right. You can utilise things like columns, feature lighting and brick stacks to make the houses stand out.
