Think Spring! Use these tips to boost the exterior of a home this spring.

As spring building and renovating swings into high gear, Fypon can offer some basic tips to add and improve a home’s exterior aesthetics. Here are a few simple steps to provide an instant boost:

  • Shutters: It’s easy to add Fypon shutters to a home to bring a little flair without increasing maintenance down the road. Shutters can complement and enhance an existing style, such as plank shutters for a rustic feel or board & batten to create a cleaner, more traditional look. Shutters can also balance a splash of color or texture to a home if painted or stained.

  • Door surrounds: Along with shutters, a door surround, consisting of a decorative crosshead and pilasters, can brighten the front entrance with just a few simple steps. Available with a keystone or without, Fypon Door Surround Kits create a more attractive front entryway that make a great first impression.

  • Unique hardware: Switch out house numbers or a new door knocker to create a different look at a small cost. Options abound for both modern and traditional styles that go beyond basic. Browse fresh ideas for house numbers here and door knockers here.

  • Column wraps: Wooden porch posts looking cracked and drab? Try a Fypon column wrap for an easy, clean-lined boost.

  • Add paint: Simply painting the front door or the house and trim a different color can have a big impact and make the whole façade feel refreshed.

  • Clean up landscaping: As a final touch, sprucing up landscaping, manicuring edges, and adding pops of colorful flowers and shrubbery can create a clean look that pulls everything together.
