Exterior Design Trends For 2020


While it seems like it was only yesterday that you made changes in your life, your household, or whatever other aspects, it’s now time for you to revisit and renew these changes. As a new year will soon open, it’s high time for you as well to make further changes in areas that you haven’t touched on yet. One, for instance, is the exterior of your home.

While the exterior forms the focal point of your house, unfortunately, it’s also one of the most neglected in terms of renovation work. It’s usually the interior that’s given the most attention. However, don’t forget that your exterior is even more important. After all, it’s the basis for a good (or bad) first impression of your house.

Get a chance to talk with a representative from home buying companies, such as Leave The Key Homebuyers. They can attest to the importance of having a well-maintained and fresh exterior in your house.

If you’re looking to redesign the exterior of your home, here are some design trends for you to adopt:

  1. Modified Wood On Parts Of The Exterior Wall

Wood is becoming a popular and well-loved trend. And, it’s going to be even more popular come 2020. However, for this year, contractors are using materials better than the wood – modified wood. While wood looks beautiful, classy, and cozy, it’s also prone to damage over the years by mold, rot, insects, and other microorganisms. Especially when used for the exteriors.

Modified wood is designed to be more durable and long-lasting. But, it still has the character and the beauty of wood effects on the exterior of a home. When mixed with modern elements, it’s a design trend not to miss.

  1. Painted Bricks

If you’ve already got bricks on the exterior of your home, then this is a great renovation project for you to undertake. If you don’t have it already, but you have the budget for it, then painted bricks are worthy of considering.

Printed bricks aren’t a new design concept, though. You’ll find numerous historical houses with this kind of design. But, that’s precisely the point: it has stayed a part of history. With the evolution of more modern designs, painted bricks haven’t become so popular lately.

In 2020, however, this is one exterior design concept to venture into. This will give your house that timeless feel. If you’ve already got red bricks, a fresh coat of white or black will also make your home look cozier and fresh.

  1. Spa-Like Exterior

Have you ever walked into a spa or a resort, and you feel instantly relaxed? You can bring this kind of vibe into your house through the exterior design of your home.

Incorporate it as well with the rest of the outdoor space. One right place for you to start is the walls. You might want to change it to more neutral and earthy tones – browns and creams. Then, have the landscaping done all over your garden. The more greens and plants, the more relaxing your house becomes. And, you’re also able to create a fresher environment.

If the budget still permits, you can even add a small swimming pool, pond, or a water feature. Then incorporate an outdoor sitting area or patio, as well. Similar to what you can imagine on pool sides.

This significant change in your exterior for 2020 will immediately have your guests feel like they’re in a very inviting and relaxing home.

  1. Black Paint Or Coating On The Walls

Black is back. In 2020, you’re going to see the color black being incorporated in homes. Not just in the roofing, but even on the exterior walls as well.

If you want to make an outdoor change in 2020, but you’re limited on the budget, new paintwork will do. You’ll see more black houses on the rise. Why? Because it’s clean, cool, and it’s also very low-maintenance.

If you want to make a bold statement with your home, then try going black.


The great thing about these exterior design trends is that they’re doable, whether or not you’re up for a DIY. Or, if you’re going for a full-blown renovation job with a contractor.

With these trends for you to choose from, all that’s left for you to do is to cut down your options based on your personal preferences and your sense of style as well.

Without a doubt, these design trends are going to increase the wow factor of your home.

  1. I absolutely love the last picture of the house with the exterior painted black and how the white gutters and window frames break it up and add contrast. My sister-in-law is wanting to repaint their house to make it more modern and up-to-date with the 2020 trends. I think she might like something similar to this, so I’ll show her once she finds an exterior home painting service.
