A home should reflect the style and personality of its residents, even on the outside. While extensive home renovations can seem a little frightening, updating your home's look doesn't have to be an expensive, months-long project. These home exterior decorative accessories add charm and character, almost like accessorizing an outfit to get a whole new look.
There are often simple things you can do to revamp your home's exterior. You can add missing details like decorative garage door hardware, or you can refurbish a set of rickety entry steps and add a new handrail. Even small changes like these can personalize your home and add character. Here are some other ideas to enhance your home's value and add curb appeal.
Say it with Shutters
Think about changing your trim color. Repainting your shutters and front door can be a quick fix that really pays off. Switching up the style of shutters on your home can make a big difference, too. Louvered, raised panel, board and batten and flat-panel shutters are each associated with different architectural styles, and can help you create the look you love most. EXOVATIONS home exteriors offers a variety of shutters.
Trim and other embellishments update a house without extensive construction. Veneers are extra layers that can be added to the exterior of a house around windows and doors to add dimension and adornment. Decorative brackets can be added under the eaves or at gable ends for a custom touch. And these new decorative accessories are often made of fiberglass or cellular PVC, products that are more durable than traditional wood.
Add Class with Columns
Porch columns can be replaced or enhanced to give your home's entry a new look. Think about changing the shape of your porch columns, or adding a brick or stone base that ties in with the other exterior finishes on your home. Completely change the look of a terrace by adding new columns and a porch overhang. And think all the materials available to you - there's more to porch columns than painted wood. Your choices include cedar, wrought iron, stone, brick, and more. From Craftsman to Farmhouse Rustic to Greek Revival, EXOVATIONS can help choose porch supports in the style you love most.
Porticos and Pediments
Too often overlooked, the doorway is first impression your home makes on visitors. If your entry lacks detail and dimension, the simple addition of a portico or even just a new pediment can make a huge difference, without breaking the bank. EXOVATIONS' consultants can work with you to determine what architectural style works best with your home, and discuss options for creating the perfect, inviting entry for your home.
With decorative architectural accessories, it is possible to transform the exterior of your home without getting into a full-blown renovation. From trims to shutters, EXOVATIONS can offer design advice to bring your personal style to the outside of your home. For more information on our services, contact us today.
