What can I do to enhance the exterior of my house?

It is a 1956 ranch that has been expanded. It is nearly 60 feet wide. We have upgraded the landscaping, hardscape.

    I think you could definitely add some contrast. Everything is blending. The garage door could be charcoal as could the shutters. Then I think the front door definitely needs interest. It is just too plain. Is there budget to build an overhang for shelter? A light hanging under would help Where are the house numbers? What colour is the existing front door?

    Thanks Judith. The front door is white. I am thinking about an overhang and your head of a light is great. The house numbers are directly under the light to the left of the door. You are right about little contrast. Do you recommend painting the house a darker color? It is vinyl siding. Not my choice.

    Would you consider a more pricey project like adding stone to the bottom of your house till about 2 ft up?

    A more visible house number that is also a design element might help. Here's one that picks up your white trim and another that works with the gray. The terra cotta also adds some warmth.

    Hi, I am not sure about your budget, but I would paint the trim and or the shutters. Use the color charts to find the color that you like. The area to the right of your door could use a plant, WELCOME plaque, wreath, and/or large pot with thin topiary. Paint the door and trim a contrasting color. It is very pretty now, it just needs some umph!

    A stone walkway and stoop would be a great idea. A stone mailbox would also be a good touch.
