The first impression matters the most: 5 stunning arrangements around the house!

Check out 5 examples of entrances and driveways that combine functionality and style to make a perfect first impression.

1. Bet on color

 

Who said that white and gray must dominate in the modern surroundings of houses? The right color will definitely bring some life and style to the building and the space around it. Since it is the color that plays the main role in the arrangement, all the other elements around the architecture are kept in the spirit of minimalism and concentrate around geometric shapes. The entrance (impressive glass doors) from the main street is separated by a small wall with a letterbox. The unique overall effect is given by the excellent design of the surface made of concrete slabs, paving blocks and stones, which integrates all the elements of the space.

2. A pastel residence in the mountains

 

Maintained in the traditional style, this residence is a “sunny” point against the green background of the mountain landscape. The garden around the house becomes a natural element of the landscape, integrating the incredible view with the surrounding architecture. A functional wide and winding driveway with paving blocks in a color matching the façade gives the impression of cutting through the garden, while it “walks up” to the main entrance, greeting family members and guests. In this way the landscape somehow enters the building. The closeness to nature is also emphasized by the materials used to create arrangements around the house. Everything concentrates on bright sand colors. The lighting along the driveway creates an idyllic atmosphere in the evening.

3. Idyllic life in American style

 

Architecture maintained in the American style is an option for those who like modernity in its warm version. The right atmosphere of the house and its surroundings is a result of many factors. It is created by gray roof tiles and the color of the house in combination with white windows, doors and the garage gate, which also has white frames. The atmosphere is also created by stone inserts in the façade, the wooden roof soffit and the surrounding area: gray melange paving blocks, granite surface finish, white gravel stones, simple fence culminating in a white wooden gate… Simplicity, harmony, various shades of gray and white combined with the greenness of the garden create a coherent whole that makes an excellent first impression.

4. With a sunny vibe

 

The uniqueness of the surroundings of the house is demonstrated by the skillful matching of materials and shapes that have been used. Selection of colors and forms allows to build a proper ambiance right from the entrance gate. In this arrangement simple, geometric shapes of the building are softened by the undulating lines of the driveway and terrace surface. The area around the house attracts attention with its “sunny” vibe, which results from the combination of warm colors, both on the façade and the surface around the building. The skillful use of stone, concrete and wood (as a building material for woodwork, the garage in the form of a canopy and terrace furniture) and the beauty of the garden with various shades of green and occasional accents of a different color – all this made it possible to create an impression of uniqueness, which stays in memory for a very long time.

5. Combining the opposites

 

Rustically and traditionally on the one hand, but with a touch of modernity on the other – the house and its surroundings kept in such a style from the entrance can truly make an impression. Here the effect is built by the red brick façade and roof tiles in matching colors, the wooden roof soffit, the dark brown colors of the woodwork and accessories complemented by the sand-colored pavement surface shaped into subtle curves. Paving blocks also combine the opposites – on the one hand there are modern shapes: large and cubic, alternating with small trapezoids, ideal for use in narrow spaces, and on the other hand the block has been treated with an aging procedure. The garden is consequently kept in a variety of shades of green with occasional plants in colors complementing the red color that dominates the landscape. Brick pots at the entrance bring the garden closer to the entrance door. Everything is coherent, functional and, above all, very spectacular.
