Have you ever wondered how to see a virtual exterior design of your home? I’m horrible at visualizing. We’re remodeling our home and one of the challenges I’m facing is that I cannot picture what a change will look like in my head. I can look at all the tile, cabinets and siding available, but being able to actually “see” what it will look like when the project is done is just next to impossible for me. I’m a very visual person so when I can’t see what the end result will look like, it takes me forever to make a decision. This post is sponsored by LP SmartSide in conjunction with Blog Meets Brand and I have been compensated for my participation.

Being able to see a virtual exterior design of your home or your home improvement project would really make the process much simpler. If you’re considering upgrading the exterior of your home by adding siding, you can use the Design Planner to see a free virtual exterior design of your home. The process is so simple. You just upload a photo of your home. This is mine:

Then you mark the area of your photograph that you want to see the virtual exterior design for. I selected the whole front of my house and then used the eraser tool to remove the siding from the doors and windows. It’s super easy to do and only takes a few minutes.

After you remove all of the doors and windows, you can see how your home will look with a variety of different siding options including cedar shakes, siding, stone, and brick.  I had mentioned that I really liked cedar shakes and this gave me the opportunity to see what my home would look like with blue cedar shakes. I love the deep shadow lines that give it a premium appearance.
 This option offers the beauty of natural cedar texture
 with the durability of a treated engineered wood product. I really need something that can withstand the harsh winter elements.

After seeing that, I started to wonder what my home would look with a different type of siding so I selected brick to see what that would look like.

And, while I don’t think that brick is something I want to go with, I was impressed with the way that silver looked on my home. You can see it at the top of the post. All of these options are from LP® SmartSide® Trim & Siding.
