 Expressing a little personality through your home’s design is important, after all, it’s the one place in the world that’s special and unique to you. The façade is no exception, in fact, it may be more important to add a little flair to your façade’s design because as they say, first impressions count, and the façade is the snap shot of your home that you present to the world.

 Just because a home is small doesn’t mean it has to be simple or plain, there are a huge variety of styles and designs that will allow your small home to make a big impact!

 With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of twenty small homes with outstanding façades to help inspire your next renovation.

1. Pretty and private

 This dynamic façade of white walls and stone pillars is appealing to the eye without revealing anything of the home’s interior.

2. Modern and imposing

The materials, colours and architectural elements at the entrance of this house are aesthetically rich, and simultaneously imposing and attractive.

3. An array of shapes and textures

 Intersecting geometric shapes of different textures bring this striking façade to life.

4. A façade with depth

 The different materials contrasting against the white walls in the background highlight the differences in shape and height, and give this dynamic structure depth.

5. Simple but elegant

 This small townhouse uses a simple and elegant design to great effect; white contrasts the wood of the door, with the tiled roof overhead adding character.

6. A strong look

 The barred gate at this home’s entrance could make the structure intimidating, but the orange tones behind add colour and personality making a less formidable yet equally interesting abode.

7. Adapting to the terrain

 This creative modern design makes use of the small amount of available space in an astonishing feat of ingenuity.

8. Open Garden

The open garden - without concealment behind walls – at the home’s front makes use of the outdoors to adorn the dwelling.

9. Elegant and colourful

 This classic, elegant façade incorporates wood and earthy tones into its design giving it a natural, welcoming feel.

10. Symmetry

 This understated rectangular home uses symmetry to successfully construct a subtle but attractive façade.

11. A minimalist approach

 This minimalist design of creative cubes is certainly a sight to behold.

12. Funky yet functional

 This unusual home is designed such that the first floor sits over the driveway sheltering the cars below—a great idea for those who need to do a lot with little space.

13. Exploiting the height

 The cool neutral colour scheme of this home contrasts with the well-lit wooden tones inside; visible through the large windows placed atop the first floor to exploit the home’s height.

14. Striking and modern

The contrasting and intersecting colours of this modern façade create a unique and striking look.

15. Colour contrast

 The contrasting black and white colour scheme gives this quirky little home presence.

16. Pool and pergola

 This Spanish home has oodles of appeal thanks to the pool and the charming pergola that extend from the front of the home.

17. Standing out

 This home really stands out – literally, in that the home’s entrance extends from the rest of the structure giving it an unusual, artistic shape.

18. The floating façade

 The upper section of this project is designed in such a way so as to extended outwards, which creates the illusion of floating block.

19. The brick façade

 You can’t go wrong with a simple red brick façade. This design combines red brick with a small L-shaped pool that outlines the structure, as well as a balcony overlooking it to create a spectacular little home.

20. A small home with a big personality

 Last on our list is a unique dwelling with an artistic concrete façade that while attractive, also provides the home with privacy.
