Before: Tired TudorFirst-time homeowner Justin Windschitl wasn't sure how to revitalize his Tudor-style home, so he enlisted the help of Curb Appeal. It will take a smart design plan and a lot of hard work to erase decades of neglect.
After: Traditional With a TwistWhat was once old and tired is now a standout. Justin cautiously went with a darker paint color, and his leap of faith paid off. He also replaced the roof and the front walkway and added lights and landscaping. A new, rounded window adds beauty and energy efficiency. Design by Jennifer Edwards-Hughes and Sasha Andreev.
Before: Dreary VictorianHomeowners Mike Poindexter and Betsy Dobbins have had their hands full restoring and maintaining this old home. They are ready to focus on the exterior but just need a little help.
After: Colorful CharacterIt's amazing what new paint can do! In addition, the homeowners agreed to stained-glass window accents, colorful landscaping and a new porch. Containing it all is a new wrought-iron fence befitting a Victorian with so much charm and presence. Design by Shelia Hanson and Sasha Andreev.
Before: Dull Dutch ColonialHomeowner Eric Middleton was a bachelor when he bought his home. Since then, he married Jennifer, started a family and began making improvements to the house. When the couple started thinking about curb appeal, they sought help from experts.
After: Home Sweet HomeThe homeowner wasn't thrilled about the idea of painting his home's brick, but soon realized it was the right design decision. Also key to this makeover is a new entrance that provides cover, color and an impressive welcoming statement. Design by Don Hirsch.
