Rendered homes are becoming popular choices for many homeowners these days. A render is typically the first layer of plaster applied to any stone, brick wall, or surface. Rendered homes offer a range of design choices for homeowners. With a blank canvas to work on, you would want to experiment with more than a few colours for the doors and windows. Here’s a look into the factors that need to be considered when choosing the colours for your rendered home.
Consider the Existing Architectural Style
Your home would probably have an existing architectural design. And you must choose colours to complement this design. If your home features a modern design, you can experiment with different bold colours like red, blue, yellow, etc. However, if your home follows a more traditional architectural design like a Victorian style, you can choose from a range of classic colours like white, grey, brown, etc.
Also, consider the colours of existing fixtures like driveways, fences, garages, and the surrounding landscape. Choosing a colour that complements these fixtures will help your home look incredible.
Consider the Neighbouring Homes
You would also need to consider the existing style of the houses in the immediate surroundings. If you live in a neighbourhood that has similar-looking homes, you will need to see if choosing another colour for the sliding and casement windows would make your home stand out uniquely or stick out like a sore thumb.
Consider Existing Conventional Options
If you choose colours for your rendered home for the first time, consider going through various pictures of existing home designs. This will give you a better idea of what to look for when choosing the right colour for your doors and windows. The first-time owners can choose neutral shades like white, beige, cream, grey, or light brown. This ensures your home gets a pleasing look the first time around.
Consider Bold Choices
If you love to experiment with colours and designs, the best place to work them out would be on an open canvas like a rendered home. And the best place to experiment with bold colours would be on sliding and casement windows, which can be reworked easily if the colour you choose does not fit the existing design. Splashes of light yellow, orange, red, blue, and green on door frames and windows can add a touch of brightness to your home.
You can choose to be more daring by opting for darker versions of these colours like eggplant, forest green, burgundy, taupe brown, chestnut red, etc. A dark coloured door or window can stand out remarkably well against a light-coloured background.
Consider Personal Tastes
You would also want to consider personal tastes when choosing the colour for the aluminium doors and windows of your rendered home. You may want to select a colour pattern that coincides with your personality. You can also use different colours for the interior and exterior of the doors and windows to match the respective spaces to offer a broader design spectrum for your home.
