The Importance Of Carefully Planning Your Home’s Front Elevation
The term elevation refers to a building’s external area, which is its front, back, and side areas. In real estate, it refers more specifically to the front part of the building. In India, the RERA Act makes it mandatory for residential housing societies to have front elevations.
Why Give Attention To Front House Elevation?
Front house elevation involves bringing in lovely design elements into the front part of the house to make it look better, more striking, and more attractive in appearance. The design elements involved should be such that they show the front exterior of the house in the best way if you were to stand right in the middle of the yard. This part of the home includes the entrance door, front porch, and widows.
Whether it is for a new building or an existing one, elevating the front part of the house involves considerable investment and should be planned accurately. When getting a custom home, it is an important aspect of the overall design discussed with the builder and architect. How your home looks from the outside influences how it is perceived by those living around it and passersby. A properly designed front elevation has the advantage of increasing the value of a home. Many home owners spend money and time getting their front home well designed so that it has a unique, appealing appearance.
Normal Front House Elevation Design
It involves creating the perfect look for your home’s front entrance so that it is quite stunning and aesthetic. However, the design will also look into functionality so that it is one that looks beautiful on the outside but also serves its purpose for people residing inside. There are many factors that can influence it, such as the local climate, the availability of materials, government regulations on construction, lifestyle needs, and budget constraints.
Types Of Front Elevation

Side front elevation, which involved designing the side part of the building and has a link with the front and rear elevations
Rear elevation of the house, which involves designing the spaces that lie behind the home, such as the garden and parking
Spit elevation, which divides the front part of the home through an imaginary lie that shows it has two parts, In this design, different levels of the home will be linked through short stairs or ramps.

Tiles are available in various sizes, colors, and patterns. Opt for tiles with trendy 2D or 3D colors so that when they are used, light falling on them makes them glow and makes the front elevation look wonderful.
Bricks are a low-cost option, come in various colors and styles, and have a rough texture. Usually, they are used along with glass and concrete to get a modern look.
Stones give a very natural look and come in colors ranging from grey to sandstone. They have calcium and silicate, which are effective in protecting the home’s exterior walls.
