With many of us spending more time at home, this summer offers the perfect opportunity to make the most of our outdoor spaces! Painting your outdoor surfaces not only protects, but helps create the perfect outdoor atmosphere from front to back. Therefore, you can really enjoy every one of those fleeting summer moments! So, let’s boost your home’s curb appeal with colour.
Tips to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal with Colour
First impressions count
The front door sets the tone for your entire home. Whether it’s a new coat of paint to freshen up a well-loved hue or adding a new pop of colour to your front door, don’t be afraid to make a statement with your entryway. A richly saturated red will instantly highlight your front door. For example, Caliente AF-290. Another great way to add even more visual interest and appeal to your front entrance is to paint the ceiling of a covered porch in a coordinating colour.
The difference is in the details
Not ready to repaint your whole exterior? Choose small but impactful areas to update. For instance, a fresh coat of paint on exterior shutters or window and door trim can instantly elevate curb appeal. Brighten up an otherwise neutral look with a vibrant new shade or add neutrals to complement bolder hues. Benjamin Moore’s Aura® Exterior paint is a perfect choice for Canadian home exteriors because it ensures a beautiful and resilient finish that will last for years.
You don’t have to DIY
Don’t want to do it yourself? Consider hiring a professional painting contractor who can achieve a flawless finish on your home’s exterior. Hiring a professional will help you achieve beautiful results and has the added benefit of supporting small businesses in your community.
