Is your Nashville home basic? Unremarkable? A little blah? We get it. And when it comes to elevating the exterior of your home, we’re here to help.

Check out our five top recommendations for upgrading and beautifying your home’s exterior. 

A Three-Color Scheme

Exterior Paint Blue

Most homes incorporate a two-color scheme on the exterior: the body paint color and trim color. While a two-color scheme isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it can look a little run-of-the-mill. Adding just one more color to your home’s exterior can take it to another level. Use a third color to accent some of your home’s dimension or unique design touches. In the photo above, the bright blue of the exterior paint, white trim and bright red touche make this home truly unique.

Beyond-Basic Porch Railings

Basic porch railings can bring down the look of home’s exterior. Transform your home’s exterior by replacing your basic railings with intricate patterned railings, wrought iron railings or tasteful wooden railings with cutouts. In the photo above, you can see beautiful patterned railings in a gorgeous wood that sets off the flagstone patio and stone of the home’s exterior.

Porch Brackets


Porch brackets are another easy way to add flair to a porch and beautify your home’s exterior. The brackets for the screened porch seen above are a tasteful dark wood that complements the rest of the porch’s design.

Be careful not to choose brackets or corbels that will give your home an identity crisis. For instance, ornate Victorian porch brackets look out of place on a mid-century modern ranch house. Similarly, a Queen Anne style house might call for more elaborate brackets than other homes. Stratton Exteriors can help you find the perfect porch brackets to improve your porch’s overall look.
