Any ideas to update 80s yellow/peach brick ranch?

6 years ago

Hi everyone,

My boyfriend and I were super excited to purchase our first home. It’s a yellowy peach brick ranch style home, but I need your help with ideas on how to go about updating it! Call me crazy, but it seems so blah..theres no visual interest or contrast.

I’d love a dark charcoal roof, but since our roof is only three years old...the reddish brown/tan roof must stay.

I’m obviously not a fan of the brick color...but my boyfriend is against painting it due to maintence. (South Texas summers are sooo humid!) It looks more beige in the house photo so I included a closeup of a brick sample that’s a better represenration of the color.

Should I paint the trim white? Paint the front door black or red? Add shutters? Or maybe change up some landscaping? Thanks for taking the time to look over my post! Any ideas/photos would be greatly appreciated!
