Home Exterior Details That Increase Curb Appeal

The exterior of your home says a lot about the interior of your home. It’s the first design element your guests can see, setting the stage for what’s to come. When remodeling your home or building a new one, the exterior design should be just as important as the interior.

Follow our tips for home exterior details that enhance the curb appeal of your new home, making it look like a welcoming place to visit, even from the street.

Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting sets a warm ambiance when the sun goes down, highlighting certain parts of the exterior of your home that you want to show off. Using solar landscape lighting will not only light up your landscape design but do it in an environmentally friendly way.

Charming Walkway

A charming walkway leading up to the front door of your home will foreshadow a beautifully designed home interior. Use brick, large stones, or other natural pavers like travertine and natural stone to achieve a beautiful walkway that sets the tone for the rest of your home.

Accent Sections

A new exterior home trend is to place accent sections of darker colors on the exterior of your home. Using a darker color as an accent section allows you to experiment with the trendy darker exterior colors without going all in.

Pressure Clean Regularly

Once your new home is lived in a bit, be sure to stay on top of pressure cleaning the exterior details of your home. Keeping it clean and shiny will enhance the curb appeal of your home and maintain your siding materials, helping them to last longer.
