Building a stunning home is important to many homeowners and builders. If your home needs some upgrades, focusing on the exterior first will help improve your curb appeal the most. Exterior remodels will help get your home noticed by neighbors and guests. The exterior of a home is a great talking point and can be something that shows off your personality and design style.
Cole Val Construction completes custom homes and home remodels for Utah homeowners. Our team can help improve your exterior materials or add additions to your existing home to increase your square footage. Working with a professional construction team will ensure you get the best materials and a structurally sound home.
1- Paint The Siding And Trim
A fresh coat of paint and updates to your trim is the easiest way to get your home noticed. Adding a fresh coat of paint to any part of your home will help elevate it in curb appeal and monetary value.
Painting your trim a lighter color than your surrounding landscape will help bring your house to the forefront. Take your dark exterior and paint it white, add a natural color to your trim to incorporate your landscape, or use a bold color on your front door or garage. The options for paint are endless.
2- Spend Some Time On Landscaping
While your home should be the focal point of the land you own, spending time on landscaping, flowers and trees, bushes, pavers, and curbing can help get your home noticed. Landscaping is more expensive and time-consuming than other home remodeling options, but it is worth the investment to increase your home’s overall value. Even simple landscaping like mowing the lawn and watering flowers are worthwhile exterior remodels.
Flower beds, decorative rocks, or a dirt path are ways to make your home feel cozy and catch the attention of others. Strategic and creative landscaping with decorative items will help any home have character.
3- Include A Stone Band On The Side Of Your Home
Including a section of rock or stone on the side of your house can be a striking exterior addition. The stone can tie in your existing pavers, be a contrast point against the rest of your siding, or make your home look more modern. Many variations of exterior rock come in different colors, so these can be easily matched to the rest of your home.
Installing stone during exterior remodels should be done by a professional. This is recommended because stone comes with added weight that could cause damage to your structure. Doing exterior remodeling projects can cost a little bit of money, but spending the money on them will ultimately make your home value higher and help you enjoy spending time around your home.
4- Add Columns Or Other Architectural Elements
Columns around your porch or additional architecture around your windows or over your doors can be a relatively affordable way to get your home noticed. If you have existing columns, add a new coat of paint or reinforce them to last for much longer. Tapered columns to hold a roof over a porch can give the home a modern farmhouse look.
Natural wood pillars make a stunning focal point against the white siding and can really enhance the look of the surrounding natural landscape. Any accessories that you can add to your home will increase its aesthetic value and make it more appealing to future home buyers.
5- Paint Your Front Door A Fun Color
For homeowners that are not looking for large exterior remodels, adding a bold color to the front door is a great choice. A bold color will get your home noticed by guests and is a great way to add some spunk to your home without going overboard. Choose a bright blue, orange, purple, or yellow, or if you are extra creative, paint a scene on the door.
