Why The Exterior Of Your Property Is So Important

First impressions always create the most powerful memories. However, some first impressions are good and some we want to forget… Whether it’s going for a job interview or meeting a new social circle, you want to let all of your greatest qualities shine. The same goes for houses. Not only should the inside of your home reflect your personality, but the outside should too. All of the exterior elements of a home should be harmonious in design to the style of the inside. More importantly, it should also maximise functionality and usability to ensure that you really are getting the most out of your land and not just the house that sits on it.

There are many reasons why you should let the sunshine sink in and bask in the exterior of your home more than you probably are. If you are renovating or building new, it’s important to pay just as much attention to the outside of your home as the inside. Here are the exterior features of a home that you need to embrace.


The façade is the epitome of your property’s first impression. Picking a façade isn’t an easy choice when your options are limitless – from light and airy Hamptons-style to moody and sleek contemporary. One way to narrow down your preferences is to think of the inside of the home. What’s your colour scheme? What style of furniture do you love? Let your style influence how the exterior of the home blends into the interior. It’s important for your property to have street appeal, especially if it’s an investment. If it is an investment and a less personal choice, visit display homes and speak to the professionals about what’s most popular.


No home is complete without landscaping. Even a beautiful façade looks incomplete without some lush greenery. It truly pulls a whole look together as a final touch. The wonderful thing about landscaping is that not only does some nature and tranquillity to your home’s aura but it also allows you to add a personal flair. Love rose bushes? Plant them! Want neat and tidy shrubs? Go for it! There’s no right or wrong when it comes to landscaping as long as it has a flow and, most importantly, is maintained.


A forever home isn’t complete without a backyard. It’s where kids create their fondest memories and where families enjoy quality time. Most homeowners might be surprised to know that what’s in a backyard can also add great value to their home. Whether it’s an alfresco and BBQ area or a grass-filled area with a veggie patch and pergola – many tenants and buyers want an outdoor lifestyle that appeals to them. Not to mention, there are many great health benefits to being outside in the fresh air.

Solar Panels

Not only can your home’s exterior look beautiful but It can give back to planet Earth too! Solar panels are extremely useful in generating environmentally-friendly energy by simply sitting on your roof and soaking in the beautiful sunshine. Not only will they help the environment by reducing fossil fuels used to produce traditional energy, but they also save you money from your electricity bills! It’s a win-win. Ask New Living Homes today about the affordable Solar Panel Packages on offer.


Building a New Living Home has given me confidence that I can easily embark on building a home rather than buying a place, and get a better house/ home rather than a small flat. But you have to choose a builder that KNOWS how to build, that builds exactly how the design dictates. A builder who can deliver what they say, when they say. A house that won’t look daggy in years to come is important too, and New Living Homes did just that. The overall investment has worked out well too, growing in value is a short period of time.


”The idea of our brand new home is still really sinking in as we never dreamt of building or ever own. A VERY big thank you to New Living Homes for giving us a brand new home! You’ve made our dreams real!”- Grevillea 4.1, Elegance Facade

I love that my new home is mine!!!! There is nothing I don't love about it. The finishes are great and it is just perfect! I love showing it off to people and all of my friends and family love it and always compliment the design and workmanship.

‘’From the very beginning, our experience with New Living Homes has been nothing but amazing. From our very first meeting at Spring Farm, to the accounts team, to the pre-construction team, and our Construction Manager on site, nothing was ever an issue, or a question too stupid’’.

Rebecca & Steve - Jordan Springs 

‘’I have been extremely happy with my experience with New Living Homes and have told anyone and everyone about our build. Everything went smoothly and yes there were a few problems but our site manager sorted them out as quickly as he could.. Throughout all the build, nothing was too much trouble for our site manager’’

After hearing some horror stories of people building their homes we were fairly nervous to see how it would all
unfold however from the very first dealing with New Living Homes we could not fault a single thing. I would like to
give special mention to Emma from the Brooks Reach Display who was very accommodating with us pestering her
with what seemed like every week as we would be checking different things in the display home.

My experience was excellent. This was the second house I have built in 4 years and the whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish. All of the sales team were very helpful and very responsive to each and every enquiry I had.

Damian & Lauren - Spring Farm 

Building with New Living Homes has been a pleasant and enjoyable journey so far, and we know we have Sandra to thank for this. Her customer service is second to none, and has made all the difference in building this time round. My husband and I just wanted to make sure recognition and praise was given where it is due. Thanks again for everything Sandra! We are looking forward to more builds with NLH.

I always thought that building a house in Australia would be a nightmare like everyone told me but it was more than a pleasure as I was never troubled about anything. The process was as smooth as a butter.

Thank you guys, its because of your amazing team work, good flow of communication and the zeal to work hard to let people achieve their dreams, has gotten us what we really wanted. -
