Improving curb appeal… help us choose new shutter/door paint colors?

9 months ago

Hello! After years of searching, we think we finally found our dream home… except its at the TOP of our price range so we are hoping to avoid a bunch of renovations if they’re not necessary. The home is beautiful - brick, 3 car garage, 5 bedroom, 4 bath, remodeled kitchen, mud room, first floor office (I work from home), basement media room, covered deck, patio, large in ground pool and lots of yard space for the kids.

One thing we don’t love is the front exterior. We like brick but aren’t crazy about the light orangish color, or the light green shutters with the red door. And there’s no covered front porch. And some pretty ugly trees.

For starters, we will almost definitely be cutting down that “cousin It” tree on the left, and possibly the other large on to the right. I also think just repainting the shutters (and possibly door depending on shutters color) would go a long way. What color shutters/door do you think would really complement the house and make it pop/ give it some wow factor and more curb appeal? Any other suggestions for easy updates to improve the look?

Here’s a couple pics for context… We‘d need to make an offer tomorrow if we are going to. Thanks!!
