Most of us spend a lot of hours planning the perfect exterior for our house. The main reason for doing so is because we know that the main entrance of a residence makes a lasting impression on the guests. So to help you come up with creative ideas for designing your very own main entrance here are 19 pictures of beautiful Indian looking facades that we have put together.

1. Horizontal facade design

The easiest way to create symmetry between all the different materials used in your exterior facade is by choosing a common layout. The designer of this house has used horizontal panels of each material to achieve the desired look.

2. Dual color exterior
