6 Curb Appeal Ideas to Refresh Your Home:

  1. Paint the Front Door

Simply painting the front door of your home can drastically change the exterior look and feel. This is a fantastic guide on how to choose the right color.  A brightly colored door will draw attention to your house and make it feel inviting. Our current favorites are apple green, cherry red, and canary yellow. There is also an app that helps you discover which color would look best on your door. Awesome, right? Download it here. If you need help with the painting, call us and book an appointment. Our expert painters have years of experience and will make your door look brand new.

  1. Update Your Hardware

If your door’s knocker, bell, and knobs are out of date or dingy, a little renewal may be in order. Clean and paint your knobs and hardware, or just replace them with something your style.

  1. Redo Your House Numbers

Replacing your house numbers with a new font can really up your curb appeal game. We love these sans-serif numbers you can find here. You can also find great decals or stencils at most hardware stores.

  1. Add Proper Porch Lighting

Good porch lighting is necessary not only for looks but safety and security as well. Path lights leading to your front door add a welcoming warmth to your home while providing a safe walkway. For a complete guide to porch light safety, click here.

  1. Add plants

Greenery will breathe new life into any space. Mix and match landscaping with pots and hanging plants. See how to mix and match at House and Home, and make these hanging plants from A Beautiful Mess.

 6. Paint the Exterior

Have professional painters renew your siding and trim for a brand new look. A new coat of paint can also double as a protective finish. Contact us for your free exterior painting estimate. Our expert painters can update your porch, siding, trim, deck, garage, and more!
