We certainly spend a lot of time talking about backyards, patios, and porches (especially now that summer weather has arrived). But there’s another outdoor space that also deserves your attention – the front of your home. Adding curb appeal can make your house a lot more appealing (and something you and your guests will appreciate every time you arrive). So we’re showing you 4 of the easiest ways to elevate your exterior – and help the front of your home make a stylish first impression

The front of your home is the first thing everyone sees. And it doesn’t take a full-on face lift to give it a whole lot of curb appeal. We’re bringing you 4 quick fixes that you can accomplish in one weekend, and might just make your home a lot more welcoming (and the envy of the whole neighborhood!)

Freshen Up Your Front Door

As the entry to your home, the front door is most often the focal point of your facade. And when sprucing up your exterior, it’s also an obvious place to start. A fresh coat of paint can make your door look amazing – and your home totally inviting too. While Bobby prefers a color that is close to the exterior for a more monochromatic look, you can make your front door really pop with a brighter tone that creates contrast and will draw the eye.

 

 


Check out this step-by-step guide to learn how to properly paint your front door. 

Add Handsome House Numbers 

While house numbers are mostly there to be functional, that doesn’t mean they can’t also be a fashionable part of your home’s facade. And this is one simple swap that can go a long way to making your exterior stand out (in the best way, of course). A new set of house numbers can do wonders to modernize an older home or add that small detail that gives your home that designer touch.

 

 


Here’s an easy how-to for mounting house numbers to any surface.

Swap Out For Stylish Sconces 

To really create curb appeal, you’ve got to lighten up (your home’s exterior, that is). Adding new sconces can really change the look and feel of your facade, while also adding security and style once the sun sets. Choose sconces that work with the look of your home, whether it’s more traditional, a bit modern, or somewhere in between.

Pile In Lots of Plants 

Now that summer is here, it’s time to really go green – especially in your home’s exterior. Bringing in plant life through landscaping and planters will help to soften the hard lines of your home’s architecture and add curb appeal the natural way.  A collection of planters filled with lush greenery or flowers also makes the perfect addition to any front door. Bobby always opts for a variety of heights to keep things interesting, while choosing similar colored planters for visual consistency.
