6 Ways to Update Your Outdoor Living Space with Paint
Are you looking for easy and affordable ways to improve your home’s curb appeal? The answer may be a fresh coat of paint! You don’t have to repaint the entire exterior to update your home’s appearance. Here are six simple ways to make your home the envy of the neighborhood!
Give guests a colorful welcome!
Your home’s front door has a big impact on its curb appeal. A boldly colored front door can make your home look more welcoming. While brightly colored shutters might look tacky, a brightly colored door can look elegant or modern. As long as you choose a shade that complements that color of your home’s exterior, it will look wonderful!
Makeover your garage door!
The color and style of your garage door can have as much impact as your front door. Since it’s much larger, you might not want to go for a bright color. Dark tones like navy, charcoal, and chocolate are excellent choices. A beautiful, rich stain can also look wonderful on a wooden garage door.
Give visitors a reason to look up!
Painting porch ceilings blue is a tradition down south. It was believed to ward off haints or evil spirits. You don’t have to be superstitious to add color to your porch ceiling! Painting the ceiling a yellow or light blue can make you feel like you are relaxing in a sunny space even on a rainy day.
Make your porch or deck look brand new!
Adding a fresh coat of paint or stain to your porch or deck can make it look brand new. If the wood has been painted before, lightly sand it down before applying a new coat. This will help the new paint adhere to the wood better. Make sure to choose an exterior paint that is made for high-traffic areas. Natural tones like browns and tans as well as neutrals like grey and white are best for walking surfaces.
Color your home’s accessories!
Light fixtures, shingles, pillars, and trim are accessories on the exterior of your home that are often overlooked. Painting these accessories can make your home stand out from your neighbors. You don’t have to choose a bold color. You could choose a lighter or darker shade of your exterior paint. Or draw inspiration from the greenery around your home. Choose a color that compliments a flower blooming around your home can be a great way to tie together colors from your landscaping and home’s exterior.
Breathe new life into old furniture!
If you are tired of your old lawn furniture, you don’t need to buy a new set. Instead, try painting the furniture a new color and replacing the linen. Crisp white and greige are popular colors for lawn furniture. You can be bold and choose a rich color like teal or berry. The flowers in your yard a perfect inspiration.
