Adding Depth to Your Home’s Exterior

Ameri-Star Homes creates designs that add depth and appeal to every home.

A new house is beautiful to behold, and Ameri-Star Homes has many attractive home designs, one of which you could call your own. All of our home designs are customizable to your satisfaction, but all begin with a great exterior look. If you are looking for design ideas to add interest and depth to your home’s exterior, continue reading below, and feel free to browse Ameri-Star Homes’ floor plans and gallery to get visual examples of these ideas.

Contrasting Colors

A home’s exterior does not necessarily need extravagant ornamentation to have appeal. Color can be transformative and contrasting colors especially so. There are countless color combinations one can apply to a customized home design; to create a sense of depth, one could use a combination of light and dark colors.

Textured Siding

Another idea is to use siding with texture. One can use one or more types of siding to achieve a unique look, such as horizontal and vertical siding. Shingles and shakes also add texture and a rustic influence. Many Ameri-Star Homes designs also have a stone or brick element as an option. Additionally, there can be an interesting mix of materials to create beautiful exterior elevations of your new home.

Overhanging Gables

A home’s facade can have interest through three-dimensional elements as well, and overhanging gables is just one of the possibilities. An overhanging gable roof is a common feature in craftsman-style homes, a style that emphasizes handcrafted architecture and appeals to modern architectural tastes. An overhanging gable roof is a small detail with great depth. 

Dormer Windows

Dormer windows are full of character. They break up the monotony of a long roof and come in many different designs. On the interior, they add living space, ventilation, sunlight, and room for a nook.

Front Porch or Portico

Many of Ameri-Star Homes’s architectural designs come with an appealing front porch or a portico, a roof that overhangs the front door. Either of these features adds instant function and depth to your home’s exterior. 

Landscaping & Lighting

Landscaping and lighting are the finishing touches that customize your home’s facade. Each home we build comes complete with a landscaping package. This final touch completes the facade.
