What Does ‘Façade’ Mean When Building Your New Home?
Don’t be embarrassed. Most people that are new to building a home have no idea what that weird word ‘FAÇADE’ means. Pronounced “Fa’saad”, simply put it means the appearance of the front of your home.
The street appeal of your new home can play a huge part in the value of your home as your biggest investment and a stand out façade will make your home more appealing to buyers and therefore easier to sell in the future when it’s time to move on. The façade can set the mood to your home, gives your house a ‘personality’ and can set you apart from the rest of the street.
When you are deciding to build a new home, your focus is always firstly on the layout of the design, fitting the block, how many bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas, kitchen, flooring materials, windows and the entertaining areas. The façade of the home is often the last thing that you will have thought about.
There are many things to consider when choosing your façade, and much of these decisions come down to your personal taste and budget.
Here, we will take a look at our popular Wildflower 256 design and see how the same design can look completely different depending on the façade chosen:
Bricks add a sense of texture and depth to the front of your home. With so many brick options if you want to get creative, the opportunities are endless! At Stroud Homes Gold Coast, our ‘Classic Façade’ features brick to the front of your home.
