It’s an exciting time to see new Nashville home trends that are on the rise, including surrounding areas like Brentwood, Franklin, and Spring Hill.
Here are some of our favorite exterior features that are growing in popularity in Middle Tennessee. What are some of your favorite neighborhood styles and home looks in the Nashville area? Share them with us in the comments below!
1. White Brick
Everywhere you look, it seems like everyone is going all white – and for good reason. White homes that are clean and well kept often feel brighter and more modern than other houses on the same street. This is especially true of brick homes that have been painted white. If it’s time for a fresh coat of paint on your brick house, we’d highly recommend looking into the white house trend! Need help undertaking your exterior painting job? We specialize in painting brick and other exterior materials and would love to help make your vision a reality. Contact our Protek team right here.
2. Outdoor living spaces
Outdoor living spaces are very in right now. This especially true for spring and fall, when moderate temperatures in Nashville finally set in. Many homeowners are utilizing their outdoor decks, porches, and patios to create comfortable living spaces that their whole family can enjoy. If you have an outdoor space, you can get in on this trend with comfortable weatherproof seating, outdoor rugs, side tables, fun lighting, and a healthy dose of outdoor plants. This is pretty much guaranteed to become a favorite spot for your family and friends to hang out as the weather cools down.
3. Mixed material homes
As the Nashville area housing market continues to grow, we’ll continue to see new and interesting takes on common housing styles in our area. One of our favorite looks right now is homes that feature mixed material exteriors, like stone, wood, brick, siding or glass. Mixed material homes add a great deal of visual interest and modern touches to your home’s curb appeal. If you live in a mixed material home however, don’t forget that not all materials should be cared for in the same way.

4. Bold accent paints
One way many Nashville homeowners are making their homes stand out is with bold choices with their accent colors. This could be anything from highlighting front doors with a bold color to window shutters and garages. If you’d like to play around with a new look for your home without making any huge changes, this might be a great step for you! Try a bright blue, yellow or green accent on your home for a new pop of interesting flair. We love looking at all the inspiration you can find on websites like Pinterest and HGTV.
5. Creative fencing
Last but not least, fencing! For many of us, privacy is an important part of what makes your house feel like home. But no longer does privacy have to be drab or boring. There are a ton of modern creative fencing designs popping up lately. Whether its metal, wood, brick or glass fencing, what you surround your house with can provide a tremendous amount of interest and curb appeal to your home! Don’t be afraid to experiment and explore a bit the next time you’re looking into fencing for your property.
