Creating Curb Appeal

Whether your thinking of selling your home or maybe just wanting to give your exterior a little makeover, these tips will help you get the curb appeal you so desire.  

Probably the easiest way to freshen up your house is to paint your front door a new bold color.  Black an red are classic choices, but you can pull off tons of colors! Kelly green, pale blue, or even a mustard yellow would be gorgeous depending on your exterior colors.  






Updating and adding exterior lighting is another quick fix.  The biggest mistake people make when selecting exterior lights (in my humble opinion) is they don't buy them big enough.  Beef up the scale! When placing lights around the yard and pathways, have varying heights to create interest.




Adding details would be the next layer to finishing your home.  Shutters, window boxes and other decorative items can really give your homes facade more depth.  


Lastly, I firmly believe every house needs a little black to ground it.  If you have a rusty white fence, try painting it black.
