This Aurora home is a wonderful example of homes built in the late 1980’s with brick and dryvit exteriors. The entry with it’s rounded turret evokes a subtle French castle style. Our client was ready for some exterior remodeling ideas, with focus on the front door entrance to her home. This beautiful setting was asking for a more welcoming entrance to her Aurora home.
The main design idea for exterior remodeling was to add stone to the existing turret . The stone added texture and color, while separating the turret from the rest of the front exterior elevation. The installation of brick pavers to the entry walk brought another layer of texture & warmth. Adding the portico renewed focus on the front entry door, with stain glass window. The portico adds visual attention and weather protection to the front entrance of this Aurora home. The copper on the portico will weather with time and to match the color of the brackets. The copper roof on the portico compliments the door, adding warmth while mixing warm & cool tones.
Interesting pattern in the walkway guides you to an inviting front door. New lighting fixtures blend and hi-light the new design elements. The main focal point of the Aurora home now says “Welcome” to all it’s visitors!
