Exterior Painting Ideas To Skyrocket Your Curb Appeal
With spring in the air, you may find your Arlington, VA home improvement thoughts turning outdoors. We understand; with spring fever comes a deep desire to plant annuals and repaint trim. Perhaps your list of exterior painting projects is short and sweet, or maybe you have several pages of painting ideas.
No matter how long your list, we have a list of our own to share with you that may bring the temperature of your spring fever down a few degrees. Check out these five exterior paint ideas and painting tips ranging from choosing paint colors to creating an outdoor oasis on your deck or patio.
Exterior OverhaulWhen it comes to outdoor painting projects, nothing is more overwhelming, yet more important, than a new coat of exterior house paint to protect your home’s exterior. If chipping, cracking and fading indicate that this is your year to paint, do not wait until the temperature rises and our painters are booked up. If you are having trouble deciding between exterior color schemes, our design center would be happy to help.
Front Door Do-OverIf the body of your home’s exterior is in good shape, but you find yourself longing for a fresh new color, consider a new paint color for your front door. Using a bright or bold exterior paint on your door can enhance the curb appeal of your Herndon, VA home and will make your door the focal point it was designed to be.
Patio PopBring the indoors, outside and use color to create an outdoor oasis for your home’s patio or deck that will beckon you to unwind all summer long. If you have drab, dated outdoor furniture, spruce it up with a simple can of spray paint and add some new toss pillows or an exterior rug. Not only will this raise your curb (and backyard) appeal, but it will also enhance your summer lifestyle by giving you an outdoor entertaining space for barbeques and neighborhood get-togethers.
Tidy Your TrimWood trim needs to be regularly repainted to keep it protected. Updating your trim also allows it to frame your Arlington, VA home with the aesthetic charm it deserves. You can stick with your existing exterior paint color or go in a new direction by trying new exterior color schemes. If you check out some of your neighborhood’s most stunning homes, you may notice they are going beyond classic white on their exterior trim and fascia.
Shutter SwapDoes your home have shutters? If the color or style of your home’s shutters do not match the design and architecture of your home, repainting or replacing them will go a long way in boosting the curb appeal of your home. Be sure to use an exterior paint color that jives with the existing colors of your siding, brick and woodwork.
