After reading our Curb Appeal blog from last week, do you feel like you're looking for a bit more? Whether you want to reside the whole house or paint a small section, think about adding a pop of color or texture. This is a great way to liven up the front of your house and give it personality. In today's blog, we will be sharing some of our favorite exteriors!

 

 

Use a mix of texture a color to add dimension and character.

A simple pendant or sconce added to your exterior makes this front entryway look designed and intentional. It serves as a wayfinding device for visitors and highlights your front door and your porch's best features. Having light above or to the side lets your visitors know what you are welcoming them into their home.



Black is a neutral! Don't be afraid to use it to your advantage.

Think about bringing in natural materials to be unified with the environment around you.

You can keep the same color siding but use differing sizes or change direction.
