Eagle Design Corner: Curb Appeal in a Day

When it comes to your home, the exterior plays a major role. It’s the first thing people see when they arrive at your home or pass by. It also sets the precedent for the interior elements. You can easily enhance your home’s curb appeal, so it beautifully stands out amongst the rest, without it being time consuming or costly. Believe it or not, it can be done in a day! Let’s take a look at a few ways that you can add instant curb appeal to your exterior.   

Easily Accentuate. Boost your curb appeal by using an eye-catching accent color. Adding an accent color to your front door, shutters, or trim is an inexpensive way to accentuate your home’s ornate details, thus making your entryway the focal point of your home. When selecting your paint, be sure to consider your home’s architectural style, as well as elements that cannot be changed, such as stonework or the roof color. For example, the muted blue door shown nicely complements the home’s stonework, as well as the gray colored Slate Range Eagle concrete tile roof.

Liven Things Up. Instead of painting, you can add pops of color throughout your home’s exterior in a more natural way with some landscaping. This is a great weekend project that will invigorate your outdoor space. Add some window planters, plant some bright summery Marigolds or Daisies or better yet, incorporate a few shrubs or trees as shown in the home that features Eagle’s Light Gray Range concrete roof tile. All of these little touches will give your home a welcoming feel and instant charm!

In with the New. Get rid of those old, boring house numbers on your home’s exterior and switch them out with something that will become the statement piece of your entryway! You can use large, bold numbers, or create a lawn piece to put them on display. Try to match your house numbers to the finish on existing metal features found throughout your exterior. The simplistic, modern numbers on the entryway of the home pictured to the left complement the black iron gates and add a nice contrast to the traditional style of Eagle’s Capistrano concrete roof tile profile. 

Changing up your home’s exterior doesn’t always mean high expenses and major renovations. All you need is a DIY attitude and a free day, and your home will finally have the curb appeal it deserves!
