<span>Sunday Morning Tip for April 26:</span> Give Your Home a Unique Exterior Makeover and Break the Mold
  • Opening Intro -

    Living in a subdivision is a great way to gain a sense of community, and have neighbors that you can bond with and enjoy sharing your neighborhood with.


And while that built-in sense of community is a huge draw to subdivision living, what many don’t appreciate is the fact the homes tend to look the same.

The cookie-cutter look is something that doesn’t always appeal to homeowners, as not everyone wants a generic exterior. The good news is that there are ways you can break the mold and tackle some really unique exterior makeover projects. They will give your home the edge and the look that you’ve been missing out on.

Consider a Different Roofing Material

If you’re looking for a way to break the mold and have your house stand out from your neighbor’s, you may want to look up – all the way to your roof. Did you know that by swapping out your roofing material you can create a totally different look and vibe for your home?

Take, for example, the natural look of cedar shakes. Cedar shakes are an excellent addition to a home where you want to seriously up your curb appeal. Anyone that passes by your house will notice the roofing material right away, as it truly stands out.

Besides looking great, cedar shakes are also known for providing better insulation for your home. They can be customized in all kinds of different ways, they are resistant to damage, and are very long-lasting.

Pick a Bold Color for the Garage and Front Door

For those looking for an easy and quick way to stand out from the other houses, painting your garage and front door a bold color is a great way to go. This is a project you can easily do yourself and is very budget-friendly, yet the results are nothing short of shocking.

In terms of what color to choose, think of bold colors such as red, yellow, bright blue, and green. You can choose a color that compliments the brick or siding of your house, your landscaping, or any other feature.

Add Fencing Around a Ground Level Patio

Another tip is for homeowners that have a patio at ground level, either in the front or back of their house. By adding a fence around it, you will be injecting some character into the design of your home. Just a short fence standing about waist-high is all you need to create the effect. You can choose from different materials, colors, and designs, whatever works with the exterior of your home.

Use Modern Shapes for Flower Beds

Flower beds are another great way to amp up the unique feeling of your house. However, rather than the standard shape, opt for a modern or contemporary garden. This can be realized through the actual shape of the garden, the materials used to border it, the items you plant, and their placement.

By using these tips, you’ll be able to give your home a unique look that breaks the mold – even in a standard cookie-cutter-like neighborhood.
