Natural Cedar Window Framing and Matching Front Door With White Painted Brick Home Exterior
A modern yet dated suburban ranch got a major facelift to create this stylish home with smart curb appeal. The corner window grouping, which was formerly a detracting feature, becomes an aesthetic highlight when given a new look and paired with matching cedar beams, window boxes and a new door.
The home's exterior is thoroughly transformed with a new roof, new front door, dormer, cedar-wrapped columns, natural wood accents and fresh landscaping. The "wormy" brick exterior is now painted in soft off-white.
Red brick steps provide contrast to the bright white home exterior. The porch features a wood front door with a large window, and a blue-painted porch ceiling. Blue porch ceilings are a Southern tradition that supposedly help keep bugs away.
Painting the brick facade white and unifying the patchwork of exterior finishes was the first order of business in this California home renovation. The design team added crisp black trim for a preppy East Coast vibe. Native landscaping adds softness, color and lushness to the facade.
Kelsey and Trip Purks purchased an older home with an outdated appearance, but it is in a great location and within their price range. The original exterior of the house was white-painted wood with red shutters and the landscaping was overgrown. They have asked Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines to transform the look of the home to better suit their style. Chip and Jo have repainted the siding a modern gray/green and the shutters black. They kept the original Dutch door and painted it with a faux finish to look like a dark stained wood grain. They updated the landscaping and added new grass, as well as a new walkway that matches the brick of the chimney.
