5 Luxurious Mediterranean Exterior Design Elements

October 10, 2022

You've finally found the modern Mediterranean home of your dreams, and you couldn't be happier! Now, the new question you might be asking yourself is, "What can I do to make this home feel more like me?" Read on to discover five luxurious Mediterranean exterior design elements you can bring to your home.

Terracotta-Tiled Courtyard

A common exterior element you'll find with Mediterranean homes is a luxurious courtyard, and if you don't have one already, you should get one installed as soon as possible. A courtyard is a fantastic place to spend your afternoons and evenings, basking in the sun. Add some comfortable chairs and greenery to liven up the space, and don’t forget to use terracotta tiles.

Wrought-Iron Grillwork

If you want everyone to look at your home and use it to inspire their homes, you need some classy decorations, such as wrought-iron grillwork. You don’t need to outright emblazon your home with your family’s name. With careful design choices, everyone will know that it's your Mediterranean home and no one else's. In addition to looking beautiful, wrought iron does a great job of giving your home some texture and diversity.

Outdoor Water Features

Water is one of the most beautiful and natural things you can find in the world, and if you incorporate water into the design of your home, you won’t regret it. A traditional home looks great and performs its functions well, but when you add in some water features, such as fountains or ponds, you get that extra oomph that it’s missing. Pools are another great feature to include in the design of your home, if you have the space for them.

Don’t Forget Nature

When some people are building their homes, the only thing in their mind is the home itself and not what surrounds it—nature. Nature is critical in framing your home and giving it some visual diversity. Some plants, trees, bushes, cacti, flowers, and shrubs are great for giving your home the visual intrigue that it may need. Without the color from these elements, your Mediterranean home will be a visual blob of earth tones.

Interesting Entryways

Another luxurious exterior design element to consider is the entryway. Many home entrances look almost identical. However, with a little pizzazz, your entryway can stand out. Try replacing your traditional front door with a rough-hewn wood or carved door, installing a rounded archway, or even adding some Spanish tile to give it some much-needed character.

With these luxurious Mediterranean exterior design elements, your home will look spectacular and speak to your unique design philosophy.
