First impressions last. Make your property stand out with these luxury home exterior designs.
WHAT IS EXTERIOR DESIGN?
Exterior design refers to the practice of designing the façade of a home or building. The design process covers the main gate, driveway, roof, exterior walls and doors, and other features that are seen from the outside. Exterior design is crucial to creating a distinctive look that reflects the owner’s tastes or to make a statement.
Depending on the scope of the project, exterior design can be a complex process that involves collaborations with qualified architects, engineers, landscaping professionals, contractors, and more.
Exterior design is important for both aesthetic and functional purposes. Not only does it reflect your values and design sensibility as a homeowner, it also creates a unique and memorable experience for anyone who sets foot on the property. Exterior design can also facilitate a smooth transition from outdoor to indoor living.
When it comes to functionality, exterior design can enhance the overall comfort and efficiency of the home. Design can improve insulation as well as increase security and privacy for the home’s inhabitants.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE EXTERIOR DESIGN PROCESS?
Develop a concept
In most instances, the first step in the process is to develop a concept through brainstorming sessions and sketches. The purpose of this exercise is to help you flesh out your ideas and determine what you want to achieve.
Consider the subtropical desert climate of Las Vegas
When developing an exterior design concept, it’s important to consider the subtropical desert climate of Las Vegas. Other factors, such as property size, functional needs, lot orientation, topography, and environment are also worth considering. You can either choose from a portfolio of pre-existing designs or work with a professional exterior designer to come up with a custom design.
Look into the HOA’s covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs)
If the neighborhood is governed by a homeowners association (HOA), it will be necessary to look into covenants, conditions, and restrictions (CC&Rs) that may affect your exterior design project. You may need to submit design ideas for approval as well as secure the necessary permits from the local board.
Set a realistic budget for the project
With your needs and goals in mind, set a realistic budget for the project. A well-connected exterior designer can refer you to suppliers and contractors that offer the best value for your money.
Refine the concept and delve into details
The next step is to refine the concept and delve into details. During this part of the process, you will determine the size and shape of the exterior. This is also a good time to choose the most suitable finishes and materials for your design concept. An exterior design can help you find the finest materials and suppliers for your project.
Create a blueprint
All of this leads to the development of the construction document. This blueprint shows the specifications of your exterior design project and serves as a guide for the exterior designer, who will take charge of executing the project.
