Set Your Beach Home Apart from the Rest
The heat is turning up and beaches are once again the place to be this summer! Adding a new level of design to the outside of your house is a fantastic way to make it stand out from two blocks down. Of course, shutters are a great way to capture the true essence of summer, but let’s dive into what else homeowners can do to make their stay on the beach more relaxing.
Add Vibrant Shutters to Your Beach Home
You can give your beach home or coastal getaway a dose of added character in so many different ways. One of the best places to start is, COLOR! The precise and thoughtful use of color can elevate a home from bland to bold instantly. Take exterior shutters, for instance, finished in shades of yellows, blues, and even greens. Multiple variations of any of these colors can really push the boundaries of added curb appeal. Not only that, but they also act as a functional piece to set the perfect mood depending on the time of day.
Transform Your Garden With Bright Colors
After you install your new vibrant shutters, try directing your attention to your home’s landscaping to see if there’s potential to add splashes of bright, lively colors. Some of the most popular coastal style plants we’ve seen include the all-reliable Daylilies, the sandy and salty soil lover Gaillardia, and of course, the easy-growing Yarrow that is perfect for any sunny garden.
Create a Grand Entrance
We all know how important first impressions are, especially in regards to a home. Whether you’re taking full advantage of soaking up the sun or planning to rent out your sought-after beachfront getaway, what better way to capture the true essence of summer than an inviting front entrance? Try creating a unique path with different textures, tones, and even landscaping that leads to your front entrance. Don’t forget, the use of color goes a long way so try and coordinate colors all throughout your home for a well thought out, completed look!
Do What Inspires You The Most
Are these your only options for adding style to your beach home oasis? Absolutely not- no matter which items you want to check off your list, they're sure to elevate your home's character. After all, it's your home and the possibilities are nearly endless!
