Curb Appeal & Outdoor Spaces

Curb Appeal

Whether you are selling your home or staying in place, curb appeal is what creates the all-important first impression.


First Impressions are Lasting Impressions


Let’s consider what buyers see first — the outside of your home.

Most buyers decide on whether or not to pursue looking inside a home by the impression made from the curb appeal.  When buyers first see your home from the street, it only takes about 10 seconds to form an opinion. You have to make those 10 seconds count!



Buyers will often look at homes, on their own, prior to visiting with their agent.

You want to create the impression that your home is well cared for and hassle free. Even the smallest flaws can be excuse enough for potential buyers to pass your home by.  Buyers make their purchase decision based on emotion.  Having an attractive front yard and entrance will appeal to a buyer’s emotions right away.


Staying in place



Fall in love with your home again.

A new fence, flower beds, and gardens can transform your front yard to an oasis. Pop in an architectural element for a polished look.

Create a front yard that makes an impact and draws you in.




Make a warm and inviting front entrance way.  Small improvements can go a long way. For example: a coat of paint, a new front door, potted plants, improved lighting, and a welcome mat are all simple changes that can make a big difference.


Using Colour for Impact


Using colour can be an effective way to create a dynamic entranceway. Previously, the front door on this home was painted white which blended into the exterior colour of the home.

Painting the door the same colour as the flower boxes transforms the entranceway and the look of the exterior of the home.



Exterior Colour Consultation


We recently assisted a couple with updating the exterior colour of their home.  The clients disliked the brown colour and felt that the home looked dated.  They were looking for a colour palette that would be more suitable with the salt and pepper colour of the roof as well as, provide an updated look.

We met with the clients and provided an exterior colour consultation.

They chose a blue-grey colour palette from Benjamin Moore. The clients completed the work with with advice and follow-up visits from us.

The home now has a fresh look with an updated colour scheme.

They will be working on a future DIY landscaping project with ideas we provided for curved front gardens and planting ideas.

What clients are saying about Armellas Style in Design

“We asked Sharon to give our home some curb appeal as the outside trim and door colours of our home were very outdated.  Her advice on exterior colours and where to use them was very impressive.  Armellas Style In Design provides professional advice and outstanding communication and feedback to ensure we were completely satisfied.  Sharon made several house calls at no extra charge to ensure the chosen painted trim matched the Benjamin Moore fan deck colours.  We will definitely be using her services again when we start interior painting and decorating!”  Rod & Rachel – Courtenay BC
