Looking for ideas of how to improve the look of the house in the attached image.
You wouldn't know it from this image, but behind this very ordinary facade is a stunning 5 bedroom home with every possible modern amenity. The problem is the home’s appearance from the street. It has zero ‘street appeal’. It gives the impression from the front that the home is small, boxy, minimalist, sanitised and has no character.
The objective is to give this home ‘street appeal’. It needs character, detailing, a sense of style, an air of sophistication and a sense of presence.
There are no specific limits on this, but please take the following into account:
. Exterior colour - preference is for the house exterior to remain off-white (painted, rendered, plastered finish);
. Roof colour – will possibly look better in slate grey or similar;
. Garage door – will possibly look better converted to wood. The garage can also be converted into a room, so feel free to experiment with this;
. Veranda – the house may possibly look better with a return veranda;
. Driveway gravel – will possibly look better to contain the gravel to the width of the driveway only, and return the balance to grass;
. Fence & neighbours house – should be screened with trees/plantings (left side of photo).
The best makeover will win.
Looking forward to your entry!
