Designing a luxury custom home in Calgary is an exciting and rewarding experience, but it also can also be a daunting task.

There are many decisions to be made when planning and designing your Luxury custom home. From selecting the right architecture and style to choosing the perfect exterior colors and materials, every decision counts when it comes to creating the home of your dreams. 

One of the most important decisions you will make is selecting the exterior color and materials for your Calgary custom home. In this blog, we'll share some valuable tips to help you choose the perfect exterior color and materials that will make your luxury custom home stand out in style and sophistication. So, let's get started!

Consider the Architecture and Style of your Custom Home

The first step in choosing the right colors and materials for your luxury custom home is to consider the architecture and style of your home. Is your home a classic, traditional style or a modern, minimalist design? Understanding the style and architecture of your home will help you choose colors and materials that complement the overall look and feel of your home.

Look at your Surrounding Environment

Your home should blend in with the surrounding environment, so look at the natural landscape and surrounding homes to get a sense of the color palette and materials used in the area. This can help you choose colors and materials that will not only look great on your home, but also fit in with the overall aesthetic of the neighborhood.

Think about Durability

When it comes to choosing materials for your luxury custom home, durability is key. You want to choose materials that will not only look great, but also stand up to the test of time and weather. Some materials that are durable and long-lasting include stone, brick, and fiber cement siding.

Use Colour to Create Contrast and Interest

When choosing exterior colors for your luxury custom home, consider using contrasting colors to create interest and draw attention to certain architectural details. For example, you could use a darker color on the trim and a lighter color on the main body of the home to make the trim stand out.

Take Inspiration from Other Luxury Homes

Finally, don't be afraid to take inspiration from other luxury homes in the area or online. Look for homes with similar styles or architecture and take note of the colors and materials used. This can help give you an idea of what works well and what doesn't in terms of exterior design. Tools like Houzz or Pinterest will help you out organizing the details you like the most and any ideas to discuss with your builder and interior designer.
