Watch as Better Homes and Gardens gives you some exterior home makeover tips in the style of a Cape Cod house! Allow your home’s natural appeal to shine through by replacing dull landscaping and colors like in this Cape Cod home improvement. Overbearing trees were replaced by smaller, more inviting plantings that allowed the welcoming aura of the house to drift further toward the street. A stone retaining wall topped with metal fencing defines the property line of the house designs, but still allows for a view of the house. Wide flagstone paths draw visitors straight to the front door, and effectively tie the home renovations together. Home remodeling was at play, as well, during this exterior makeover. A portico atop the front door is a relatively simple addition, but helps to give the house a more commanding presence. Painting the bricks an off-white color draws all the elements of the house, from the siding to the trim, together in a neat fashion. This helps the house stand out within the neighborhood. Just a few architectural enhancements and landscaping changes stepped up this Cape Cod home from receding to wow-worthy. Use a few of these home renovation tips to transform your home into the best one on the block!
