While we often spend a lot of time thinking about the design of what’s inside of our homes, it’s equally important to think about the design of our homes’ exteriors. They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but let’s face the facts. When people visit your home, they immediately form judgments about it from what’s on the inside, before they’ve even crossed the threshold of the front door.
Needless to say, this is why you want to give your home as much curb appeal as possible. You want those who visit your home to have the right impression, even before they’ve seen what you’ve done on the inside! Plus, remember that the day may come when it’s time to sell your home. How it looks from the outside is going to be a big determiner of how much of a profit (or not) you can make when you’re selling.
With all of this in mind, we thought it would be fun to take a look at 20 homes that have a tremendous amount of curb appeal. Running the gamut in terms of architectural style, we’re willing to bet you’ll notice a few trends across all that dramatically increase the curb appeal of each.
