Smart Ways to Spruce Up Your Exterior

Curb appeal can be drastically improved by altering the appearance of your porch, patio or elements of the façade by changing design and layout. Finding the right materials for your home that withstand natural weathering can be challenging. Oftentimes, exterior materials are as durable as they are heavy. With the help of an experienced remodeling contractor, outdoor structures can be incorporated surrounding the home to add beauty to the existing architecture while achieving an updated, long-lasting design.

There are many things to consider when remodeling the outside of your home, such as deciding what areas need the most attention, have the most potential or what details best complement the home. Here are some ways to invest in updating your home’s exterior by adding some flare with some simple touches and new design. While these options will certainly add value to the home, they also keep the home from feeling dated. Sign up for our monthly e-newsletter for more refreshing inspirations.

Install a walkway. A great way to add some embellishment and design to the outdoor areas of your home is by incorporating a stunning walkway made of stone, pebbles, brick or flagstone. Stone and pebbles pull together with the natural environment of a mountain home and can achieve a rustic-style landscape. Create an elegant walkway to lead to beautiful patio, porch or garden area. Using lights alongside the path will allow for safe and easy passage. To find the right materials for your hardscape project and ensure the design will endure, use a remodeling contractor that keeps both design and durability in mind.

Brilliant doors. Create a bright and cheerful entry by using a splash of vibrant paint on the door. This is a simple way to add some visual interest to your home. Fun turquoise or fuchsia tones will add some spunk to your exterior. If you’re going for a Spanish style, a brightly painted door along with a clay tile roof will achieve the look you desire while creating an updated, new feel. Replacing old doors with a heavier style and adding a solid color will give an entry a customized appearance and reflect your personal style. Dress up your door with high-quality paint to avoid weathering. Old doors may need preparation before applying paint to prevent paint from peeling.

Picket fence. Use a gorgeous and refined country-style fence around the front of the home for a classic, vintage look. Strategically planted flowers and vines alongside the fence give the entry a garden-like appeal. To achieve a shabby chic design outdoors, find distressed patio furniture with floral prints and pastel colors schemes to expand the trend outdoors. Your home’s exterior will be welcoming to guests with this charming style. For a unique and exciting alternative, paint the fence using bold colors.
