5 Exterior Painting Ideas to Boost Your Curb Appeal, Avon, Connecticut

Your property's outer appearance is every bit as important as its interior. A well-maintained exterior will boost your home’s curb appeal as well as its value. And you don’t have to spend a lot of money to spruce it up. An exciting color scheme executed with exterior paint can make an impactful difference.

Paint Ideas for Your Home’s Exterior

1. Refresh Your House Number

Spruce up your house number, especially if it's a few years old. If you have metal-plated house numbers that have become rusty or corroded, sand them down before priming and repainting them with a fresh new color. You could also discard them and stencil the numbers directly onto the house facade with exterior paint.

2. Change Planter Colors

Strategically placed potted plants and flowers can dramatically add to your home's curb appeal. Keep them looking good by painting the plant containers with new colors. Use earthy colors that accentuate the flora in your yard or select ones that match your outdoor theme.

3. Make Your Doors More Welcoming

The front door is often the first element of your home passersby and guests notice, so you’ll want it to feel welcoming. If it's weathered, and you can't replace it, a coat of paint can make it look like new. Neutral colors can give your home a timeless aura while a bold tone captures people’s attention.

4. Look Up

It's often overlooked, but painting your porch ceiling can change how your front exterior looks. Try a soft blue hue for an inviting vibe. It can also serve as an excellent accent for a lot of color schemes.

5. Give Your Fence a New Paint Job
