Curb appeal

I was reading this great article from This Old House Magazine e-mail this morning.  I thought I would share it with you.  It talks about adding curb appeal to your house. Here are some ideas for you.

1. Standout Windows

These architectural focal points can make a big impact. Highlight them with paint, shutters, or flower boxes.

2. Inviting Landscape

Well-tended and in proportion to the house, plantings provide shape and color to accentuate the architecture.

3. Welcoming Entry

Porches and porticos frame the front door, extending an invitation to guests.

4. Unifying Paint

A successful scheme enhances architectural detail and works with the landscape.

5. Shipshape Siding

The backdrop for all other exterior details, shingles, clapboards, and masonry should be in top condition.

6. Handsome Roof

A very visible umbrella sheltering all other built details. Its shingles should be in good shape.

Hope you enjoyed.
