On To The Reviews

I hope our little introductions to how we feel about both kitchen islands and a home’s exterior have made sense so far.

Now that we have gotten that out of the way, we can begin talking about what we brought our page back for in the first place!

Let me preface all of the reviews that we are about to discuss by saying that 99.9% of what we are going to talk about is all up to personal preferences. You might completely agree with what we think and you may have a completely different opinion and that is totally fine.

That being said, let us begin.

Roofs & Siding

home2If you couldn’t tell by now, we here at Kitchen Island Reviews generally prefer designs and styles that stand out from others and don’t blend in with the rest of the neighborhood. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but being unique and creative is something that is very important to us.

As far as roofs and siding goes, we generally like to steer away from colors that the majority of the neighborhood has while not trying too hard to attract attention (click here to see what we mean). Some of our favorite brands and roofing styles that we have seen over the years can be viewed here at ofallonroofer.com/. As you can see, the styles that are shown don’t look like they are going out of their way to attract attention, but when you really look at them you can tell that they are definitely among the more modern and sleek of designs.

Just as important as the roof, we will begin talking about the siding of your home next.

On To The Exterior

Now that we have discussed a little bit about the interior of a house, mostly in regards to the kitchen, we can shift gears a little bit and take a look at the outside of the house and discuss what it takes to get creative in this aspect of your home.

Creativity… Again

island3Just like utilizing your creativity with your kitchen and inside of your house, you can apply the same ideas to the exterior of your home as well! In today’s day and age there are a huge number of choices out there when you are deciding on the perfect style and design for your home.

Whether you choose to go with the more traditional asphalt roofing shingles and vinyl siding, or want to mix it up a little bit and try metal on your home, there are countless options for you to choose from. The exterior of your home is the first thing that any guest that you decide to have over is going to see and it never hurts to leave a good first impression.

Some may choose to stick with the neighborhood trends and blend in with the rest, but personally we love to think outside of the box and make our homes stand out from the rest. Even for those of you out there who prefer the more traditional styles, you can still find options out there that will make your home stand out.
