Why your facade matters

September 2, 2021 BY
Your home’s exterior is the first impression of your abode and your lifestyle; it’s also the one part of your house that’s on show to the rest of the world. Metricon is leading the way in providing design expertise, inspiration, and advice on facade design, one the most complex and important aspect in building a new home. We all spend a lot of time talking about getting the interior of our home right, but what about the exterior? The facade of a property is what makes that all-important first impression before you even hit the front door. Street appeal is becoming a top focus for new home buyers and will impact a home’s resale, this is why Metricon puts such an emphasis on all of the elements that go in to crafting the perfect facade. From aesthetics to energy and cost efficiency, Metricon’s design team dedicates significant time and work into developing the best facade options for their customers. Customers can now get an in-depth insight into Metricon’s knowledge by watching their recent online Facades Masterclass Webinar on YouTube. Presented over 45 minutes, a range of Metricon experts offer invaluable advice on all things facades, including top tips and popular theme choices, presenting a great opportunity to learn more about how to choose the perfect facade for your dream home. Metricon’s design director Adrian Popple, with 34 years of home design experience, speaks in the webinar about the importance of facade essentials, saying that it is one of the most challenging elements of design and simply can’t be rushed. “Creating a sense of entry is so important and a well-considered facade will stand out on the street,” Mr Popple said. Lisa Goodsall, Metricon’s National Display Home and Studio M retail manager takes webinar viewers through three top trending façade styles: the ever-popular Hamptons, French Provincial and Contemporary. “The Hamptons style is not just for coastal locations, it looks perfect in regional areas too,” Ms Goodsall said. “It’s relaxed, comforting and welcomes people in, the French Provincial elegance is a real statement, telling the whole street you’ve made it, you’re here!” “Whilst the Contemporary look just works everywhere, new estates or established areas, it can be adapted perfectly.” \Metricon’s retail product manager, Andrea Barnett, notes the challenge choosing the right facade can pose. “You can even start by driving around and looking at other homes, this will help you build your ideal colour scheme,” Ms Barnett said. “It really is an important process, and you just can’t rush it if you want the best possible façade for your home.” When building with Metricon, you have a fantastic range of facades to choose from for all of our home designs. From timeless Hamptons style to bold contemporary looks to Australian country designs, Metricon has a home facade design to suit every style.
