Small Design Upgrades That Can Make Your Home More Appealing

You don’t need to plan a major remodel if you want a fantastic-looking exterior; small details are sufficient to have a significant impact on your home’s appearance. The right changes can show off your keen eye for detail and appreciation for exquisite craftsmanship.

Handyman Connection® of Chattanooga talks about simple ways to improve your home’s appeal:


Good exterior lighting is one of the simplest and best ways to make your home look more beautiful. For example, consider using surface-mounted lanterns to change the atmosphere of your front porch. This lighting choice can make your entryway feel more welcoming. Experiment with your lighting styles and choose options that create the atmosphere that you want for your home.

Dentil Molding

This design option will look wonderful with traditional homes. The dentil is a small block that acts as a repeating element in molding. Dentil molding is visually interesting and can make your exterior look more special. Additionally, it is affordable if you use a synthetic material.

Rustic Wooden Brackets

Adding wooden brackets underneath your eaves will add a rustic and welcoming touch to your home. This design option works particularly well with mountain houses. Wooden brackets are also affordable. Adding them will make your exterior look unique and rugged.


The pediment is the triangular upper part of the front of a building that features a classical architectural design. Installing a pediment over your front door and combining it with exterior crown molding makes for a beautiful and cohesive entry for a traditional home. If you want to try this, select trim that complements your home’s architectural style.
