Aside from that, the design also differs from one home to another because it would depend on what the owners want. The type of materials used also has a great impact to the design of a home both in the interior and the exterior. Other homeowners just prefer to redesign a certain part of their home or add an extension. Most of the time, it is the facade that is being transformed in order to get a more updated look.
