EIFS Veranda using Trim to Create Negative Space

EIFS Veranda using Trim for Negative Space

Even flat trim can greatly enhance an otherwise plain-looking portion of the house (like a veranda) by using negative space and a decorative flower. The surrounding trim creates a negative space on the front of this veranda, making it seem as though the darker area is "cut out". Adding a small, unassuming flower subtly adds character to the front portion of the veranda.

Also note that the trim hangs about 1/2" below the soffit (on the right side of the veranda), creating a drip edge that prevents water from running across the soffit.
