The best home designs are beautiful. What makes a waterfront custom home beautiful?

A house is more than a house; it should be a home to whoever dwells within it. Moreover, it should be beautiful, meaning it should be pleasing to the eye and fitting to the inhabitant(s.) What makes a home beautiful? Below, we’ll share a few thoughts on this topic. If you are interested in building a custom home on Maryland’s waterfront, Shore-Line Construction can be your custom home builder!

A Beautiful Home Fulfills Its Purpose

A beautiful home is one that has a practical side as well as an aesthetic side. The most beautiful objects are the most functional as well. That’s one factor that makes a home beautiful: how well it fulfills the needs of its owners. The homeowners might have specific goals that are both abstract and concrete. Examples include spending more time together as a family, enjoying a spacious household, and having the ability to host multiple guests. 

Ultimately, a home should be a place of rest, stability, and nurturing, a place where people can most be themselves. What goals do you hope your home can fulfill?

A Beautiful Home Uses the Principles of Design

These goals materialize through the principles and elements of design. Beauty shows through the art of the home, the arrangement of those principles and elements of design. The outcome will differ in every house, but it will still look great. 

The principles of design are balance, contrast, pattern, rhythm, movement, unity, and emphasis, and the elements of design are line, color, form, texture, shape, value, and space. A beautiful composition, such as a house, takes all of these parts to create a pleasing design. The result could be a coastal narrow lot house, an inverted beach house, a farmhouse, or a modern house. The possibilities are limitless.
