Does your home’s exterior need a facelift? Are you itching to shake things up with fresh designs or want to make the neighbors jealous of how good your home looks? Let us help give your home a curb appeal makeover. Check out these 2020 curb appeal trends that will make you feel like you have a brand new home.
Upgrade Your Siding
Upgrading your house’s siding offers an easy way to garner curb appeal. Modern materials will update the look of your home and also help its durability. Many of the siding options on the market today offer low maintenance for homeowners. They will make your house look good for longer with less upkeep. For example, homeowners often request fiber cement siding specifically for its resistance to the elements – as a James Hardie Elite Preferred Contractor, this is our recommendation! Vinyl siding also holds up against extreme heat and cold and requires little maintenance – we are also Vinyl Siding Institute Certified Installers.
You can also replace basic walls with windows. Floor-to-ceiling windows and sliding doors can open up a living space to the outdoors. If you need a little more privacy, fresh windows contribute to curb appeal, too. Homeowners favor the natural light that large windows offer on sunny days. Plus, the look creates an original aesthetic that your neighbors will envy.
Mix Style and Design
Curb appeal in 2020 has a lot to do with the style of your home. As trends repeat themselves, designers continue to embrace the past with an updated twist. Farmhouse designs and industrial elements continue to appear as a hybrid in modern houses.
Using various siding materials to combine styles achieves multiple goals. It keeps your home looking unique from others on the block, and it modernizes an older look. Add stone to classic board and batten siding to balance textures and styles. Take your favorite style and play with accents to create your own personal exterior for a house unlike any other.
Play With Color
An easy way to increase curb appeal requires a keen eye for color and paint. You can improve a home’s curb appeal simply with a fresh color on the front door and shutters. Professional designers claim that the right color on the shutters ties a whole exterior look together. Recently, black and blue doors replaced formerly popular red shades to accent a home’s entryway. Whether it’s your front door or the entire house, use color to show personality to passersby.
Dark colors with contrasting white trim swept the nation’s homes beginning in 2019. The trend continues in 2020 with shades of burgundy and charcoal at the forefront. Some even favor a dark-on-dark aesthetic for a full contemporary look. If that’s too drastic, monochromatic color palettes such as gray appeal to those looking to get away from beige tones. For homes on the coast, pastels are all the rage to play into the beach vibe.
All of the products we offer come in a large variety of colors, both light and dark, to suit all of your design desires!
Update Your Front Door
Trends show glass and iron features on front doors will be big in 2020. Mixing these elements adds interest to the entryway. Your front door is key for curb appeal as it either invites guests into your home or deters them from knocking since it’s the first thing they interact with. Your door design is an easy way to express yourself to those walking by. From the material and color to accents, endless possibilities exist to make your home stand out from the sidewalk.
Most commonly fiberglass, front doors evolved along with siding for ease of care for homeowners. Fiberglass allows for color customization and accent features without compromising on quality. Updating your front door increases curb appeal but also benefits your home.
