Curb Appeal

Have the best-looking home and front yard on the block with an exterior that blends lasting character and curb appeal. It's easy to create a home that's as functional as it is livable with smart updates that add value. Using colorful accents is a smart way to make a style statement and enhance your home's exterior. Whether you're looking to add a little color or a lot, the front door is a great place to try a bold dose of color. Consider coordinating outdoor lighting with hardware, adding a stone veneer to exterior walls, or redoing your roof to improve your home's overall look. Research your home's architecture and consider adding trim around a door, brackets, window boxes, or shutters. Decorative details can also boost your home's character, curb appeal, and value. Quick and easy exterior home improvements, such as mending a walkway, charting a garden path, or adding outdoor lights will warm your exterior and make the transition from street to door safe and seamless. No time or money for a full-blown exterior project? An on-the-cheap weekend project, such as painting trim, staining the deck, or washing your siding, can refresh your home in a flash.
