Want to make your brick porch look even better? All it takes is some simple tricks to revitalize your home’s entryway and give it a complete facelift. Our brick porch installers in Michigan have seen some beautiful homes over the years, and we’re here to share their secrets with you. Here are some easy ways to enhance your brick porch.
Use A Contrasting Trim Color
One great way to draw attention to your brick porch is to use a contrasting color for your trim. White is a common trim color because it does not fade easily and it looks crisp. However, you could choose a different color that pops off your brick. If you have brown brick, you may choose a soft crème color that picks up on the undertones of the brick. If you have grey brick, a dark grey color would look nice. Keep in mind that darker colors are subject to sun fading, so they will not last as long as lighter trim colors.
Paint Your Front Door
Use your front door as an accent on the front of your home. You can paint it any color you want – turquoise, red, lime green, hunter green, purple black, yellow, etc. Ideally, your door color should complement your bricks and your trim. You may need to get samples of door paint to figure out which color looks best under natural lighting. With an eye-catching front door, people will have no choice but to look at your stunning brick porch.
Fix Cracked Mortar With Tuckpointing
The mortar surrounding your brick can wear down over time, making the brick look older than it actually is. If you have cracked, chipped, or missing mortar, you can get it replaced with tuckpointing. Not only will this make your brick porch look better, but it will also make the bricks themselves last longer. This extra protection will extend the life of your brickwork and ultimately save you money. Contact Brickworks Property Restoration to learn about our tuckpointing services in Michigan.
Add Personal Touches
Planters, chairs, tables, and signs can personalize your brick porch and make your home feel more inviting. Use this as yet another opportunity to express your personality and creativity. You could change your décor with the season or find pieces that look good all year round. Avoid over-cluttering your porch, and you will have a wonderful façade people are sure to comment on.
