Summer is a great time to invest in the exterior of your Boulder, CO, home. With a little help from the experts at Jacobsen Brothers, your house’s curb appeal can be elevated to an eye-catching, head-turning new level.
Take a critical look at the outside of your house. Is it time to freshen your appeal in the neighborhood? We can help. Our design expert will give you the best options to choose from, and our professional painters will apply their expertise to the job. In the end, your exterior can be attractive, light and fresh to capture interest and to improve the value of your home.
Here are 5 recommended focal points for your curb appeal makeover:
- Appealing Siding and Trim
Naturally, the first step in creating an amazing exterior is choosing the right blend of colors for the siding and the trim. You will want to complement the neighborhood color scheme, but also stand out as one of the best. Neutrals are still among the most popular with white, sage, beige, gray and brown leading the pack. There are some strong color choices to consider as well, such as brick red or nautical blue.
The trim can be a color that is more playful, energetic, engaging or striking. If your front door is mostly glass, you can paint the small bit of trim around the glass a bold color, such as sunset orange or turquois, and not overpower since it is a small percentage of the area. You can carry on the bright accent to window trim and accent pieces.
If bold isn’t your style, try a crisp, elegant trim color such as black, steel gray, dusty sage or ivory. These colors can enhance your siding and offset some features to the house.
- Irresistible Front Door
A professional painter can make an amazing front door design that creates the image you want for the entryway. Stencils and bright colors can offer a very contemporary flair, or complementary colors can blend with trim while still setting the door apart from the rest of the house.
- Customized Entryway Floor
If you have concrete steps and porch, you’re in luck. A new trend is beautifully handling updating the old concrete look. Our painters can paint the concrete in a striking neutral, such as a deep gray, and then use geometric stencils to lay an intricate pattern in contrasting white or other color. This pattern really pops on the darker, neutral surface.
Or, we can paint the base neutral and then paint a faux carpet runner that goes up the steps in a straight-edge design. This illusion is both elegant and eye-catching and will go a long way towards dressing up your old concrete.
Do you have wood instead of concrete? We can paint your wood deck a deep, restful color that adds dimension to the front of your home.
- Stylish Shutters
Tired shutters can enjoy a makeover with a beautiful complementary color, such as the color of the front door. This color can be carried on to the ceiling or underside of the porch roof for a surprising splash of color. Stencils can create an attractive and whimsical look on the shutters, or you can choose to go with the tried-and-true solids.
- Accented Extras
Finally, we won’t forget the extra features that make all the difference when it comes to an amazing curb appeal makeover. If your light fixtures are rusty, discolored and fatigued from UV rays and the elements, we can fix that. We’ll put the expert coats of paint on them to make them look like copper, brass, or New England black to freshen them up and add definition to the front of your house.
Your house numbers are one of the most interesting ways to accent your house. Whether you choose to mount them on a flower box, paint them on the curb or retaining wall, or add them to the house in a creative way, your house numbers can be done in a blending accent color that makes them a beautiful focal point.
Carry that same theme to the mailbox with a fresh application of the same color and a careful detail of the house numbers on the front to help guests find you quickly. Other accents, such as faux fountains, flower boxes and porch swings can also display the attractive detail color.
Don’t forget the garage doors. One of the most uninspired areas of many houses, garage doors can give you a large canvas to display a striking accent color and to blend in with the front door. You can contrast with the siding and trim, or carry the theme on with a more subtle approach. Either way, the garage doors can be a beautiful thing when we’re done.
