Exterior Design

We all want a spectacular home that stands out amongst the rest; we also wants a home that sits comfortably in its surroundings and neighborhood.

Do you ever wonder what makes a home exterior visually appealing? Why certain homes on the street make you stop and stare in awe at their beauty? It’s most likely those homes follow key design principles.

Designing the exterior of a home can be a complicated process of colour choice, materials, balancing shape and lines – it’s not a job for the novice. All elements, from the roof, walls, doors etc even down to appropriate window glazing need to be considered.

Essentially, this means that the purpose of the building should be the start of the design. The exterior of your home should reflect your personal needs as well as your style. Our Designer, Jeannie Little, works closely with you to gain a full understanding of your lifestyle, taste and budget to achieve a result  that you will love for many years to come.

Our Designer works collaboratively with architects, builders and drafters and can deliver to you a full set of architectural plans so you can price and compare builders and manufacturers quotes.

JLD offers this service primarily to homeowners & renovators looking to create a  fresh  innovative new look to the exterior of a tired dated property. Whether it’s just a change in colour scheme or a total redesign of the exterior and its features, or a new build, Jeannie has over 20 years experience  gained through renovation projects and new home construction and can help you achieve the design of your dreams.

Colour schemes for exteriors of new and existing properties includes;

  • Window & door selection
  • Brick and/or cladding selection
  • Roofing selection
  • Paint specifications for walls and trims

*Colour schemes can also be designed from architectural plans.

A Colour Placement Plan documents your chosen colours in there exact location clearly indicated on plans or drawings of your property. This service removes the chance of errors by the painter.
