The roof of a house is something that binds the entire look of the house together. If the windows are the soulful eyes of the house, the roof is its crowning glory. Today, we are showing you different roof styles to make your house a total stand out.

1. Traditional red tiles

This dreamy house is a classic favorite. The traditional red tiles work perfectly with the white walls and the dark panels of the windows.

2. Rustic charm

The combination of black roof tiles and white walls makes this house look modern and contemporary. This house is a good example of traditional roof tiles used with modern application.

7. Scandinavian style

What makes this house unique is the asymmetrical roof that is covered with stones in different shades of grey. The combination of different materials like stone and wood contributes to its Scandinavian aesthetics.  

8. Rustic and rugged

From here we can see how the roof has the same tone and shade as the brick wall. This almost monochromatic style gives the house a rustic charm. 

9. Different materials

Nothing about this house is traditional. From the way the tiles are placed to the design of the roof to the features of the facade. We also love how every segment of the house looks like cubic boxes next to each other!
