Despite my ability to design your space so that it is as beautiful as possible, it is ultimately the space itself that speaks of your story, clearly shows your vision, and conveys your personality.

The use of white and black accents for home exteriors is a timeless décor setting. It has been practiced for years now and still, it looks just amazing. But even with the simple choice of black and white accents, there are actually a bunch of options to go through. These details can actually change the way your house looks and feels, textures of the white and black trim house, framing of the windows, entryway décor and other such features can play an important role in determining how this whole black and white trim setting is going to play out.

The white house with black trim and wood accents sure is contrasting, and exciting and can elevate the aesthetical profile of your home but there are other features to consider. These also help in elevating the feel and contrast of your home, so without further ado let’s get right into these tips to jazz up your exterior;

Emphasize the window casings

Window casings actually help in wrapping the border of a window and these are important to install. What you can do here is to go with black window casings on white siding as it will help to sync your windows with the white and black trim effect that you have going on for your home. It draws eyes to it and kind of deepens the contrasting look.

Going with modern paneling

To help the exterior walls of your home get on the black and white trim introduce modern paneling of fiber cement siding with a wood grain surface. Not only it will look extremely appealing but gives out a modern feel too. Accent these with black fiber cement siding sitting on the roof of your house and you have got yourself a party.

These days, homes with myriad designs fused together have become the standard go-to design solution for budget homeowners. Because of the same reason, the suburban or lodge-style décor has found its way back into the latest home décor trends for 2022. It features conventional architecture with lodge-inspired features such as having wood pillars right there at the entrance enjoying a white slide and a black trim.

A white brick exterior

This is probably the best exterior decorative trim setting that you can have, it doesn’t matter what specific construction architecture your house enjoys you can easily incorporate this setting. Bricks have a solid appearance and a noticeable grainy texture that is not entirely smooth. With black roofing and trims going around at the curves and edges of your home you would definitely be able to enjoy a contrasting look that is subtle and sparks confidence in the color palette and architectural sense of the homeowner to the observer.
