5 Ways to Add Color to Your Home Exterior

Determining what you want to do to your home before you put your home on the market is a hard decision. There are many different opinions out there and ultimately it is your choice and your money. Where do you start? In this week’s blog, I am going to share with you 5 Ways that will improve the way your home will look from the outside – in other words – Curb Appeal.

You want your home to sell. Before they see the inside, they will see the outside. If you WOW them from the time they drive up to your home – they will want to see the inside. Whether you decide to add subtle color or a lot of color, these ideas are sure to give your home the boost to get it SOLD!

  1. UPDATE WITH COLORED SIDING – Rather than just getting new siding, you might want to get a siding that has some color to it. You will improve the look of your house, and if you choose the right color, it can complement your neighbor’s home colors.
  2. MAKE A STATEMENT WITH NEW WINDOWS – If you do not have good insulated windows, it is a good investment. A term that you might hear is ‘cladding’ – the aluminum wrap on an exterior window frame, lets you have the beauty of wood inside and a low-maintenance covering outside. Cladding comes in a variety of colors from BOLD to NATURAL.
  3. GET A BRIGHT BOLD COLOR ON THE FRONT DOOR – If the exterior color of your home is neutral, then adding a dash of BOLD color to the front door is a great investment because it can boost your home value. You can either do-it-yourself or you can purchase a door that is already painted. Make sure that your front door has acrylic latex paint for a high quality finish.
  4. ADD SHUTTERS – A great way to give your home a new look is to add shutters to the windows. Whether they are operational or just for a decorative look, make sure to look for fiberglass models, high-density PVC or composite wood materials. This offers the look of wood but don’t start cracking, splitting or rotting.
  5. CONCRETE STAINING – Add a new look to your standard concrete driveway or sidewalk by staining the existing concrete. This is a great way to add texture that will carry over to the way that buyers see your home from the time they drive up. Many products can give the look of stone, wood, or leather.
