Curb Appeal Makeovers That Will Make You Want To Give Your Home A Facelift


Have you ever seen the TV show Fixer Upper on HGTV?  It’s amazing!  They take old dilapidated homes that nobody really wants anymore and give them a fresh new look and feel.  I love seeing those old houses come back to life.  It also helps you realize that it’s really not too difficult to make your home’s exterior look nicer than it is now.  Sometimes, all that’s needed is a simple fix.  Here, we’ve got curb appeal makeovers that will make you want to give your home a facelift.

1. Old Colonial restored to former glory

Who wouldn’t want to live in the house on the bottom?  It’s gorgeous!  A new roof, a fixed-up porch, new paint and shutters really bring this house to life.

2. Freshened ranch style home

This home looks so much better off with a whole new paint job, door, stones, and reshaping of the windows and the garage.

3. Painting brick

Sometimes all your house needs is a good paint job to bring it up to date.  This old brick home got a nice gray paint job along with a bright aqua door and pillars surrounding the doorway to make it stand out a bit more.

It’s a costly expense, but sometimes adding another level to your home can bring some great rewards.

5. Adding a yard makes a difference

Adding a space for driving, grass, green spaces and bark is always a way to make your home look so much better.

6. New exterior is stunning

A new exterior for your home can make it look completely new.  The deeper richer color adds so much to this home with lovely red shutters with white accents.

This 70’s style home gets a modern update with new architectural stylings, colors and styles.  All the funky windows give the new house an urban vibe.

8. Paint the brick

Sometimes all your beautiful brick home needs is a little bit of paint to make her shine.  Grey paint makes this home stand out in a great way.

9. Fix the windows

If your windows are the wrong shape or size for your home, don’t be afraid to fix them.  Adding windows that fit the shape and style of your home can be a lovely upgrade.

Changing this home from a soft yellow to green was a subtle but lovely change.

11. Porch and paint

We love wraparound porches!  Adding a white porch to your home spices things up and makes the whole space look more inviting.

A small home looks so much better after adding a brick front and a porch.

13. Adding a chimney

We love the addition of a brick chimney to this home.  That, along with the paint job and white shutter accents, really make this house pop.

15. Wood accents make a difference

We love that all this home needed (besides some paint) was some nice wooden accents in the form of shutters and a garden rail.

16. Stone home update

All this home needed to make it really sing was an elevated exterior, making the house appear larger than it is.
