Want to improve your home’s curb appeal but need some inspiration? Here are a few homes that show exactly how simple creating curb appeal can be.

ROCKIN' CHAIRS

Blue house with light blue rocking chairs on porch

Instead of going with traditional white or wood rocking chairs, this homeowner went with an unexpected sky blue. I love how the chairs pop against the dark blue house. A crisp white door and unique crisscross porch railing make this beach home a curb-appeal winner.

BOLD ACCENTS

This homeowner is not afraid of color and uses it well. The cheerful orange shutters and door paired with bright yellow chairs are fun and look so sharp against the traditional blue. Wisely chosen black-and-white house numbers and black mailbox blend into the background, keeping eyes on the playful colors. Another curb-appeal champ.

WARM & WELCOMING

If you prefer muted colors, you can't go wrong with bright white trim. This porch is extra welcoming thanks to the wood rocking chair, which complements the wood door. The wood also stands out against the gray-blue house. It's a warm and appealing combination, and so easy to replicate. Your house doesn't have a strategically placed oval window? Hang a piece of outdoor-friendly art instead.

A+ FOR ACCESSORIES

A single swoop of decorative string lights is like a glowy necklace for this pretty home. The bright pink flowers contrast well with the soft blue house. A cute vintage-style mailbox, metal wall decor, and clearly visible house numbers complete this welcoming picture.

COLOR PLAY

This super-cute house is packed with curb appeal. It successfully mixes shades that are color-wheel cousins. Warm white trim unites the chartreuse and aqua, which set off the charming red light fixtures. Lipstick-pink geraniums keep the fun theme going.

FLOWER POWER

A parade of potted flowers leads the way from a colorful mulched front flower bed to the purple front door. The purple blooms repeat the door’s color. Stair lights add safety and a twinkly touch in the evening.

SWEET SIMPLICITY

This charming all-white house proves that you don’t need to purchase a slew of accessories to add curb appeal. A pair of simple white chairs is all the small porch needs, especially with the lacy porch trim and the statuesque, beautifully edged palm tree. Bonus points for the tidy landscaping that matches this home’s simplicity.
