How can add curve appeal to my tired-looking ranch home?

3 years ago

Hi! We're starting to think about giving our 1968 ranch style home a facelift. We are open to ideas. The brown Gerard roof, the stucco and the stones are staying. Please help me decide what would help add curve appeal. Which paint color/s would work? Door color? Window accessories (trim/shutters)? Landscape around the foundation? Garage door? Gates? Overall color combination/s? We have a cement drive-up driveway. Our lot goes up to the junipers; the agave cacti are not mine.

Originally, we were considering replacing the windows (as they are the original aluminum windows), but doing that would minimize the visibility/glass space, and we don't want to lose that. To do the entire house it would have been anywhere from 20,000-40,000 (Milgard/Pella-Renewal by Anderson) with vinyl because of their sizes, and that's a big chunk of money. So for now, that might have to wait. I would still like to do something to/around the windows.

Thank you so much!
