Curb appeal is the first impression of your home. Over time, a little TLC is needed to keep your home relevant and well-cared for! We LOVE sharing ideas for easy updates – both to enhance your home to enjoy or to get ready to sell. Last week one of our team members made significant updates to her home’s exterior – including paint in a completely different palette! Obviously, you don’t need to go so far as a full repaint to punch things up, but it’s fun to see the difference new paint and accents can make!

Here’s a quick look at the BEFORE. This south Olathe home is 5 years old, and it’s recommended to paint your home every 5-7 years to keep things fresh and protected. For a new construction home, it’s actually suggested to paint closer to the 5-year mark. The timing on this paint is important to address caulking needs and to preserve the original layer of paint while it’s still in decent shape. Together, the caulk and paint help to protect your home.

LIGHT & BRIGHT

Now for the NEW … Jessica and her husband wanted to change their color tone from dark brown to a lighter gray. In the end, they chose a greige to complement the brown stone on entry.

Our fabulous stager, Julie Casey, recommended this Sherwin Williams palette – Intellectual Gray (body), Shoji White (trim) and Slate Tile (accent) –  to line up with the family’s interior and brighten things up!

ADD EXTRAS!

Beyond paint, Jessica made several small, inexpensive updates to enhance curb appeal. These included new exterior lights, numbers, porch pillows, and a fresh wreath and doormat. A last-minute request was made for the painters [RePaint KC:  913.638.6261] to change the color of the existing patio chairs, and everything pulled together!

If you want to enhance your curb appeal without a full paint, try painting your front door, or bringing pops of color in through pillows, plants or flowers! The best part is these updates are easy and effective, without a significant investment. Here’s to a bright, fun summer!

Our brand NEW listing at 16632 S Lind Road in Stonebridge Meadows is a MUST-SEE!! You simply can’t reproduce this much house at this price. This former model offers 6-bedrooms, 5-full baths, a finished lower level and AMAZING outdoor entertaining space. The original owners have put lots of extras into this well-maintained home!

Here are just a FEW reasons this home should jump to the top of your list!
  • Finished Lower Level + Extra Bed/Bath: The Fenwick IV by Hilmann Home Building is a generous floor plan, and the sellers expanded on this by finishing the lower level. Unique stained concrete floors flow through the recreation space, and a good-sized 6th bedroom offers 2 closets. One for clothes and an extended closet for larger items! And, the 5th full bath was done right! It offers tile, a nice vanity and walk-in tile shower! If a bar is in your basement dreams, the plumbing is in place for an easy addition. There’s also a fun hideaway for kiddos under the steps and a large storage area with built-in shelving!!

  • Upgrades Throughout: As a model, this home already came with some extras, like tile on the floors and surrounding all baths. And the sellers have made many smart choices that separate the home from the competition. You’ll love the plantation shutters in the great room and entry! Another significant addition is the painted garage with built-in shelves AND painted floors. The garage is clean and also doubles as a great space to watch the game or socialize from the driveway with neighbors!

  • So Much Storage: From the walk-in pantry and butler’s pantry in the kitchen, to the over-sized mudroom with closet and built-ins and dedicated storage space in the lower level, this home is sure to meet your storage needs. Closets throughout the home are spacious and the counter space, utility sink and custom cabinetry in the laundry room will impress — as will the roomy master closet!!

  • Curb Appeal + Outdoor Living: This home makes a great first impression. The lot sits adjacent to a cul-de-sac, adding extra area for bike riding and outdoor play! And at nearly a quarter-acre, there’s lots of room to spread out! Entertain outdoors this summer from the stunning covered and screened flagstone patio – rain or shine – that leads out to a stained patio – ready for your BBQ or fire pit! The lawn is regularly maintained and mowed, and a sprinkler system is in place to support easy lawn care. Outdoor lighting enhances the home at night – front and back!!
