Curb appeal can be the difference between a home buyer choosing your home over another. Update your home’s look and make it just as beautiful as the inside. A fresh coat of paint can go a long way, so it’s essential to pick out what’s best for your home. Read below to learn about different ideas that could improve your home’s curb appeal! 

5 Painting Projects To Improve Curb Appeal

Fresh Fence: A freshly painted fence in your front yard can make a huge difference! If your fence isn’t aesthetically pleasing, a new paint job will create that finishing touch and make it look more polished.  

Freshly Painted Home: A fresh coat of paint will make your home look more modern and updated without the cost of adding new siding. Some popular color choices are dark gray, beige, brown, red, navy blue, and earthy light green. If your neighborhood has many similar-looking homes, consider painting your house a different color to make it pop and stand out. Just remember, you can’t go wrong with neutrals! 

Accent Colors: Painting your home one color can look good, but an accent color can take your home to the next level. Choose an accent color that balances and matches the main color scheme. Some popular options you can choose from include ivory white, light grey, cream, and black. 

Repaint Your Front Door: If your home was recently repainted and you still want to improve curb appeal, opt to paint your front door. Not only is it an easy project to check off your to-do list, but it’s one of the first things that catches the eye of a home buyer. Neutral colors always work, but if your home is already in the neutral family, go for a bright pop of color. The latest trend is adding bright vibrant colors, such as pairing yellow with a navy blue home or red with a beige or gray exterior.  If you have a porch or seating area you can tie in matching toss pillows or even a throw blanket to tie it all in. You can also coordinate colors of plants to accent your paint job. 

Paint Your Mailbox: It’s pretty easy to forget about your mailbox, but like the front door, the mailbox is one of the first things an incoming buyer might purchase. It can be used as a decoration or give it a classic neutral look. Matching your mailbox to your front door can be a stylish way to match colors.
