Landscaping and design are both important for setting the theme of your home’s exterior, and materials and color scheme you choose for your patios, pavers and outdoor features are what will really help you achieve the look you want. Creating a cohesive design depends on all of the parts of your yard meshing well together.
“Modern” has been one of the most popular style trends for homes across Pinterest, home and garden blogs and magazines for the past few years. Though you may not be able to change the design of your house to achieve the look, there are a few steps you can take in your yard. Here are a few to try:
1. Think about shape: Whether on the home itself or in the yard, most modern designs are defined by clean lines and minimalism. When adding a water feature, fire pit or walkway, using symmetrical square or rectangle shapes will give your yard that organized look of a modern home.
2. Use color strategically: Modern-themed homes use materials in shades of whites and grays to make the space feel more open and empty – even your yard is full of features! The experts as Basnight can find the perfect colors to match your existing features or help you redesign your yard for a complete modern color scheme.
3. Materials: Rather than using bricks or uneven concrete blocks for water features, walkways and walls, look for more natural materials to use. Wood, stone and metal will blend the features into the environment more and create the light, airy feel that defines modern homes. Basnight carries a large variety of materials to choose from, and we can help you pick one that gives you the look you want.
