Watch as Better Homes and Gardens gives you some exterior home makeover tips! A once-neglected home, hidden by overgrown shrubs, had lost some of its charm until home improvement transformed it into a house straight out of a storybook. After countless remodels, this 1885 home had lost some of the historic character that originally helped it to stand out. The new home designs featured a stacked stone fireplace that gave off a cottage-style vibe, along with three dormer windows on the second level that referenced arts and crafts stylings of a traditional American home. Cedar siding and shingles along the side of the house are home remodeling ideas that add interest and intrigue, as well as stunning curb appeal for passersby. The columns of the sagging front porch were rebuilt, and a beaded ceiling added intricate detailing. Try to give small pieces as much attention as the big ticket items during your house remodeling. Colored shutters, like these forest green ones, add another layer of dimension to the brown and cream siding. Removing a few trees stepped up the front yard from overgrown and crowded to simplistic and lush. Carefully tended flower beds promote the fantasy appearance as visitors approach the house. Apply some of these exterior home remodeling ideas to your own house!
