Are you thinking of building a new home or simply renovating your existing one? If so, you are probably asking yourself what materials to use for the exterior, as it is the first thing people will see when they approach your property and therefore determines the appearance and character of your house. Have a look at these remarkable home exterior designs for ideas and inspiration.
Modern home exterior design
The modern home exterior design is the most popular within new house owners due to its clean lines and elegant simplicity. The exterior of this project located in La Gomera, in the Canary Islands, is a good example of this type of architecture. The Ángel Fito studio has opted for stone effect tiles for the whole outdoor area, thereby creating a sensation of continuity between the different surfaces.

Another prominent example can be seen in La Zubia (Granada, Spain). The exterior of this large Nordic-style house, designed by the Saz Arquitectos studio, combines black and beige concrete effect tiles, giving a modern and welcoming style to the space.

Minimalist exterior design
A minimalist exterior – such as the one shown below – is a one way to create a unique home that stands out from the rest on the street. The façade of this house, designed by the architect Pedro Reguera, combines grey tiles with white in order to achieve a contemporary look that feels fresh and inviting.

Indoor-outdoor flow design
Creating indoor-outdoor flow using wide windows is key to maximise light, connect spaces and even expand your living area. This project, carried out by the Nexe Studio, is a good proof of this, and the best example can be found on the terrace, whose wood effect flooring extends right up to the pool area, therefore turning it into a continuation of the living room.
