Neutral and warm look

For yet another season, nature is the source of inspiration for your exterior design. Choosing materials such as wood, stone, terrazzo and rattan to accessorize your backyard will compliment the natural style trends. This does not mean that patterns and lively colors are to be eliminated, but to be used as accent pieces instead.

When the time comes to choose your colors, stick to tones of grey or white for your principal materials. A tone on tone grey will give a neutral yet warm effect when combined with natural greens from plants and trees. In doing this, you open a world of possibilities for accent colors in your decor that can be changed as trends evolve.

Contemporary design

Neutral tones are also trending for home siding materials. If you are at this step in your new construction, aluminum panels with a wood effect is the newest trend to follow. Although many are still charmed by the warm effect a wooden panel gives to a home, it is a less than favorable choice solely because of the maintenance it requires. Over the years, natural wood panels will begin to deteriorate and discolor if proper regular maintenance is not carried out. Therefore, aluminum siding represents the new alternative way to accomplish the wooden trend. Aluminum is a strong material that will not fade and does not require regular maintenance. The Rinox Group now offers a new division of aluminum siding, called Rialux. Rialux aluminum siding was created to match perfectly with Rinox stone and brick. In its collection, Rialux offers a variety of neutral wood colors that can be combined with all styles, colors and textures of stone and brick.

Large and inviting driveway

Equally important as the house itself is the driveway, because – curb appeal! In 2020, large sized pavers for the driveway is trending. Try creating patterns with your product choice for a unique and endless effect. Choosing pavers ensures durability, as well as a wide variety of styles, sizes and textures to design an original driveway. Pavers will also without a doubt increase the value of a property.

Natural looking pools

Also trending in 2020 are natural colored pools. Aquarino pools have a list of color choices for the pool shell to blend with the surrounding slabs. Choosing a white or black pool will give the water a natural effect. This choice will blend with your other neutral choices leaving room for your accessories and vegetation to stand out.

Bring interior decor outside

The idea is to bring the interior to the exterior to create a living space that meets all your needs. This new space will become your favorite area to host your family and friends as it will become both elegant and functional. An outdoor kitchen, bar, relaxation zone and firepit are all options to look at when designing your outdoor living space.
