How to Make Your House Pop Amidst Your Generic Neighbors
  • Opening Intro -

    Nobody wants to live in a bland, boring house.

    If you've been feeling uninspired by your home's exterior, undertaking a remodeling project might just be in order.


In fact, 75% of homeowners report having a greater desire to be in their own homes after completing a renovation project. Luckily, there are many projects you can do to make your house pop and give it new life.

Get Creative with Your Landscaping

One of the most impactful things you can do for your home’s curb appeal is to change the landscaping. Instead of having plain grass like your neighbors’ do, don’t be afraid to mix it up. Create a design with rocks and mulch to create a sense of movement throughout your yard (and save yourself money on your water bill). You can even put in a fountain or arbor as a statement piece. Nothing is limiting you except your creativity!

Put in a New Fence

When you think of making your home look unique, putting in a new fence probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. However, fences can be great design elements in your yard. An old, faded fence will make your house look tired, but a new fence can give it life. Pick a color that compliments your house’s paint color. You can even add a wood or a wrought iron accent for even more interest.

Pick a Bold New Paint Color

Making your house stand out from the crowd can be as simple as adding a fresh coat of paint. Picking a bold color scheme can instantly change your house from boring to chic. Even a small change, like adding an accent color on the front door can have a huge impact on the overall look. To make your door pop, choose a bright red or rich green. Depending on the size of your house, this project can be done in as little as a weekend.

Add a Porch

Sitting on the porch and talking with friends and family is one of life’s little pleasures. Porches are great entertaining spaces. Adding a front porch to your home can completely transform its overall look. It can add a touch of charm and character to even the most generic house on the block. You can paint yours white for a classic look or an accent color to tie in with the rest of your exterior. All of your neighbors will be jealous they didn’t think of it first!

Whether you’re updating the exterior of your home for your own enjoyment or to get it ready for sale, there are many ways to make it stand out from your neighbors’ homes. With a little creativity, you can have a unique and beautiful home that is anything but generic. You can make your house pop with a little creative effort.
