Create Stunning Curb Appeal for Your Split-Level Home with These Seven Ideas
Split-level homes have character and charm, and when accented properly, can ooze with visual delight that you simply won’t get tired of. Here are some popular ways to approach your exterior update for your split-level home with results you’ll love!
1. Accent What Makes Your Home Unique with Texture and Color
Your split-level home exterior can become visually appealing with the simple use of color. By beginning with a basic palette for the body of your home and then contrasting one level of your exterior with a complementary color, the eye will be drawn in. Add texture with different materials—like a classic natural wood porch, and you’re off to a great start in updating your split-level home’s look.
2. Add Vertical Siding to a Section of Your Brick Split-Level Home
Is a large portion of your home covered in brick? How about replacing the section of your home that is currently covered in siding with HardiePanel vertical siding? It will lift the eye and transform the overall look of your biggest investment.
3. Create a Modern Style Split-Level Exterior
Sleek modern design with clean lines fits well on split-level homes. HardiePlank horizontal lap siding coupled with the well-appointed Aspyre Reveal Panel System by James Hardie delivers a bold, crisp look that shows off your split-level home’s uniqueness. Add design elements like an updated front door paired with a new garage door, and you’re sure to love the results!
4. Don’t Let Stone Columns Deter Your Home’s Transformation
Are there dated stone columns on your split-level home? Here’s an easy way to update your home’s look. Begin your siding renovation with fresh HardiePlank siding. Next, feature your exterior’s clean lines with stark visual contrasts like the city-inspired color Aged Pewter siding and Artic White trim. This color palette looks amazing on split-level homes whether they are in urban neighborhoods or not. The results are stunning!
5. Add Contrast and Dimension to Your Home’s Layout
Does your home have multiple sets of stairs inside? Why not take that look and let it radiate on the outside too? Create vibrant style by stacking different Hardie siding options to your home’s various levels. Begin with vertical HardiePanels on your dwelling’s tallest section, and apply horizontal HardiePlanks to additional levels to achieve delightful visual appeal. By mixing things up, you get the unique style you desire that sets your home apart.
6. Highlight the Staggered Appearance of Your Split-Level Home
Use color blocking to accent your home’s multi-level design. Why not have a little fun with Hardie’s designer-picked ColorPlus® technology? Get a factory-painted deep, bold color for the second floor of your home (and balcony if you have one!), while choosing a light, refreshing white for the first floor of your split-level home. Add some modern light fixtures and gorgeous greenery to give your home natural appeal.
7. Treat Your Gables with Gorgeous Design
James Hardie fiber cement siding delivers beauty with simple combinations such as choosing horizontal HardiePlanks for your home’s gables and vertical HardiePanels for the remainder of your home. Get the ideal siding combination and highlight it with gorgeous color by allowing all the vertical panels to remain a light color, like Arctic White—and horizontal planks and trim a deep, bold shade, like Iron Grey.
Complementing James Hardie Siding with Other Materials
Pairing Hardie Board with other durable home exterior siding materials can add visual interest and enduring performance to your home exterior. Consider adding texture to your home’s appearance with attractive Versetta Stone or brick—the perfect complement to your Hardie siding.
Whether you choose HardieShingle, HardiePlank, HardiePanel, or Hardie’s contemporary Aspyre Collection to reside your home, your curb appeal will soar. Get the unique look you desire with the perfect amount of personality and performance with James Hardie fiber cement siding.
