If you’re considering designing and building a new carport for your Brisbane home, it’s time to think about your style. No, we’re not talking about your fashion sense or the way you like to wear your hair. We’re talking about the style of carport that will best suit your home.
These days, having a carport that’s simply practical is rarely enough. Most homeowners want a carport for their Brisbane home that adds appeal, maximum value and wow factor.
4 Brisbane carport style tips
- The choice of materials is important. You’ll obviously want materials that are durable and require little maintenance. From a style sense, it’s also important to choose materials that will match or complement your Brisbane home.
- Roof style is another important consideration. You might not know what a flat, hip, gable or Dutch gable roof is so you might want to look at this post on roof styles. The main thing, like the materials, is to match or complement your home.
- Likewise with colours. Usually the best choice is to choose colours that are featured on the exterior of your home. Alternatively, you can use complementing colours.
- Don’t stop there. That a look at other parts of your home and consider whether you can replicate the look. For example, decorative features such as end fills, finials and timber posts on an older style home, or boxed in gutters and posts on a modern home.
At the end of the day, the most important thing is that your new carport will look like it belongs to your Brisbane house. Whether your home is modern, older-style or something in-between. If you make sure your carport matches or complements your home, you’ll be a style winner.
A common example around Brisbane are timber gable heritage carports, simply because of the number of older-style homes we have. This includes the quintessential Queensland, which generally feature gable roofs, extensive use of timber and heritage colours.
Carport practicality still important
With all this talk about style, you still must consider practicality. Your new carport needs to suit your requirements perfectly.
Aspects such as the size of the carport, whether it’s a freestanding carport or against the house, and the durability of the materials are all important. Above all, you want to ensure your new Brisbane carport will provide your cars with the protection from the elements you need.
Depending on your requirements, you might consider other practical elements, such as including lighting, storage and even perhaps a roller door for extra protection and security.
