Sometimes a standard structure just isn’t what you are looking for. Your home, business or development is a unique space and deserves an enclosure that will both stand out and blend in as well as suit your specific needs.
Enclosures can be utilized for a myriad of reasons – to conceal garbage cans or outdoor equipment, conceal outdoor storage, create a safer space for gardening or composting or as a barrier for a beautiful new outdoor shower. Whatever the need, we can build it.
One of the most popular enclosures for residential spaces is outdoor shower enclosures. An outdoor shower is ideal for a home by the beach or with a pool or hot tub that sees a lot of activity – but they are great for any home if you want to shower under the stars! Outdoor showers keep the chlorine, sand and dirt outdoors throughout the summer so you don’t have to worry about damaging the interior of your home after using the pool or swimming in the ocean.
Outdoor shower enclosures can be purchased in standard kit form or custom built by Walpole design experts. Both options are designed with beauty and function in mind and will last season after season.
Many of our other popular enclosures involve concealment. Walpole offers many types of concealing enclosures from the duly-concealing board fence to lattice enclosures seen here. Each enclosure does what you need it to while still allowing easy access to the area inside. Enclosures can be built to match existing fencing and can be custom pained to blend in seamlessly with your home or business.
Take a garbage enclosure for example. These enclosures are built to house two (or more) garage bins. Not only do they conceal the bins but also protect them from pests (including raccoons) and keep them secure in the event of a storm or high winds. Not having to clean up your yard after a raccoon has gone through a bin or the wind has taken it for a spin is worth the investment itself!
What exactly is architectural interest and why should I care?
Simply put architectural interest or architectural detail is simple additions to the structure of your home to make its construction more dynamic and interesting. Adding more architectural detail can take a simple space into one with enormous charm and curb appeal. Small touches can make a space look more unique and pleasing to the eye.
Generally to add this interest you work with the structures and angles that already exist on the interior and exterior of your home. Adding some architectural interest to the exterior of your home can really change the look of your space and provide a boost to curb appeal.
A great way to add architectural interest to your homes’ exterior is with a trellis system. A trellis is an architectural system that uses clean lines to frame entryways, windows and provide space for climbing plants to flourish on your home.
Many homeowners add trellis systems over doorways or windows to heighten the otherwise generic looking space. Trellis systems can add a ton of charm to the exterior of any building with simplicity.
There are many other elements you can utilize when adding architectural interest to your home. You can opt to add stylish raised window panels to enhance the look of your windows. Dentils are also a great way to add some interest to your home. The custom vinyl moldings add a touch of unique detail to cornices.
For a business owner, architect or developer creating a lasting impression is important when imagining the exterior of a business. The shape and size of a building and its paint color are important but even if you are working with an old building or cannot renovate you can still do a lot with exterior structures and architectural touches.
Small Touches Have A Big Impact
Have you ever heard the saying “don’t sweat the small stuff?” Well in this case, ignore it. Small exterior details can be crucial at establishing your business because that’s the first impression any prospective customer or client will ever have.
Small items like lanterns, posts, mailboxes, window boxes and planters can help create an inviting and classic look without a ton of effort. Planters with flowers or greens flanking an entryway or a beautiful lantern post right out front can give a great boost to your business’ curb appeal.
To make a bigger impact add a larger structure to the exterior of your business. A great investment is an attached or freestanding pergola. This kind of structure creates an exterior space to relax under or a covering to a walk or entryway that is sturdy, refined and long-lasting.
Walpole pergolas are crafted in the finest cedar or wood alternative material AZEK™, a material that looks and feels like wood but will not rot, split or chip and requires no-maintenance.
Create A Border
Fencing has more power than establishing privacy – it can also be a big factor in increasing curb appeal. A smart, clean, classic fence establishes structure to the exterior of a building and defines the space. The clean lines with posts and pickets add to the positive perception you are trying to create for your prospective clients.
Add a unique or eye catching gate or pillars and you can have an enviable entry.
