Small Ways to Make Your Palatine Home Pop in 2024

Posted on January 16, 2024

Sometimes, you want to update the exterior of your home, but aren’t quite ready for an entire exterior paint job. Fortunately, hope is not lost. It is still possible to bring some new attention to your home! There are a few small projects you can do to your Palatine home to increase the overall curb appeal. These projects take very little time, money, and effort, making for the perfect fall project!

Paint Home Accents

If you’re looking for a new color for some parts of your home, the window shutters or trim are a great place to start. White trim has become extremely popular in Palatine. It mixes with nearly every base color and gives your home a sophisticated, modern look. For something more colorful, consider painting your shutters a fun yellow or red. It will really draw the eye to your home!

Update the Fence

Besides creating security for your house, the fence can be a stylish addition. Fences quickly become old and tired. Whether you are working with a wooden fence or metal, either could benefit from an update of a new stain or paint. As an added benefit the coating will protect the fence and prolong its life. Consider colors beyond typical clear, black and white. Make your fence a stand out piece on your property with gray, blue or green!

Utilize the Greenery

It’s an annual task for spring to replant gardens and flower beds. While you’re working in the dirt, consider adding some more color with a brick or plastic edger. This will help define the garden from the grass. Colorful Illinois-familiar flowers that grow back every year can add a dimension to your home without requiring a ton of work! If you have a white or green home exterior, a blooming front yard would look especially great. 

Make a Fun Mailbox

A mailbox is a home’s calling card. It should be dressed to impress as well, especially if it’s out by the road as a beacon. Match your box to your home or trim with some extra paint or go bold and choose another color scheme. Earn extra points if you add a flower bed or pretty lettering with your house number. If you plan on staying in your home for years to come, don’t be afraid to get creative! A little self-expression will be sure to make anyone passing by smile. 

A New Front Door

Painting your front door has become a trend our painters have loved the last few years. It is always fun to drive down the road and spot a red, yellow, or blue door. Bring that fun to your own house with just a can of paint and a few hours! The front door is the first thing people see when they come to your home. It sets the mood–make it the mood you want it to be.
