A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for a home’s curb appeal. A bold color pairing, like navy blue and bubblegum pink, will ensure your home isn’t lost in a sea of cookie-cutter houses.
If color isn’t your thing, touches of wood accents will do just the trick when boosting your home’s appearance. This home seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, features cedar details add a natural alternative when it comes to exterior accents.
Modern House Numbers
Say goodbye to ordinary house numbers. Add a modern, chic vibe to your home’s exterior by upgrading to a laser-cut wooden plaque.
No matter how beautiful a new plant or house feature may be, it will never get a chance to shine if neighbors can't see past a wild, unkempt yard. By maintaining a nice, healthy lawn height, you can ensure your home will be noticed for all the right reasons.
Walk This Way
Choosing the right hardscape can be a challenge, but a simple stone or brick path is a great way to add charm to your entryway. If the inviting look isn't enough to convince you, just imagine life with no more muddy footprints or sunken heels!
A pair of rocking chairs on the front porch will elicit nostalgic memories of the past, while also provide the perfect backdrop for creating new experiences.
