When it comes to making the most of color in your home, there’s plenty of obvious ways to do this. You can paint each room a different color, or choose a neutral theme and use flowers and artwork to create the “pops” of color we all know and love. You have likely even managed to make the most of color in your backyard, too; the right plants, the right color furniture, even brighter play equipment for your kids can all help to ensure that the area is as colorful and wonderful as your family is.

The front yard, though? That’s less likely to receive focus when it comes to color. This is a shame, especially given how many homeowners focus long and hard on achieving outstanding curb appeal. Color is such a vital part of any design of any area of your home, but it’s an aspect that is sadly lacking from the front of many houses.
3 Colorful Ideas To Bring Life To Your Front Yard
If you want to use color at the front of your home, then you’ve made a great choice. A clever use of color can distinguish your house from your neighbor’s in the very best way, and provide your home with a sense of style that you may have otherwise struggled to achieve. Here’s three ways you can add color to the front of your home and yard. You can read through and see which one you might be tempted to try.
The easiest way to create a colorful look at the front of your home is to use flowers; the bigger and brighter the better. Opt for bright yellow sunflowers; deep red roses; beautiful blue forget-me-nots; and a host of other colorful options such as pansies and tulips to create a beautiful look that will catch the eye all summer long.
The one downside of floral color is that it is seasonal, so making a complete change to the color of your home is the best way to guarantee year-round color. Companies like Dunbar Painting are experts at transforming the exterior of your house with a color scheme that you’ll never tire of. You could try a single color all over the house, or pick a multi-color scheme that complements other colorful choices you have made across the front of your home.
The guttering and drainpipes of your home serve a functional purpose, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Painting these elements of the front of your home is a great way to add more color in a subtle, but distinctive, way. Just ensure that you use the right kind of paint; by their very nature these elements experience a lot of water flow, so you need to ensure that the paint will stay put even through the heaviest of rainstorms.
3) Colored driveways
Finally, rather than choosing neutral colored stone for your driveway, why not go for something brighter, more colorful, and thus more distinctive? You don’t even need to lay a new drive if you don’t want to; it’s possible to dye your existing stonework if you don’t mind an adventurous DIY job!
Enjoy your new colorful front-of-home, the curb appeal it will bring, and the admiring glances it will draw from passers-by!
