Cohesion: The Secret to Designing an Attractive Neighborhood or Community

Friday January 25, 2019

As the country's real estate market continues to rebound from the 2008 bubble, more neighborhoods and residential communities are popping up. From the East Coast to the West, the number of newly constructed homes is steadily increasing -- and this trend isn't expected to change anytime soon. If you've been given the task of developing a new neighborhood or community, though, you should strive for a cohesive design.

What Is a Cohesive Design?

A cohesive design refers to developing a neighborhood or community with a set of matching visual elements, such as similar colors, shapes, fonts, textures and materials. Some developers ignore this strategic approach and instead use an eclectic mix of mismatching visual elements in their neighborhood's or community's design. It takes time to plan a cohesive design, but it can pay off for your neighborhood or community in several ways.

With a cohesive design, your neighborhood or community will attract more residents. The matching elements create an attractive, tidy appearance that most people enjoy. A cohesive design may even have a positive impact on property value. As more people flocking to your neighborhood or community, property prices go up. Most importantly, however, using a cohesive design allows you to create a identifiable brand for your neighborhood or community.

How to Create a Cohesive Design

To create a cohesive design, you must use mailboxes, street signs, wayfinding signs and lighting with a similar, cohesive appearance. If your street signs and wayfinding signs feature a rustic bronze color, for example, you should use the same rustic bronze color with the mailboxes.

The good news is that you don't have to scour countless vendors in search of these items. Forsite offers a one-stop shop for all your neighborhood or community design needs.
