Adding A Pop of Color to Your Home For Spring

The spring sun has just started to come out in Western New York and it’s shining a light on our dull yards that are gray from months of ice and snow. What’s a homeowner to do? Spring home trends are all about bringing color back to the home. Keeping your home exterior fresh, trends or not, will always increase the value of your home if you ever choose to sell. If you plan to stay in your home, brightening it up does wonders for its appearance and how you feel about it. So, if you’re looking to add some color to your home and yard to get it ready for warm weather, here are a few ways to do so:

Hot New Siding Colors

The color palette of your home’s exterior is likely something you’ve previously decided on. A popular home trend this year is to blend color palettes with both light and dark colors over the exterior; an example of this trend is using a crisp white trimming against a dark gray siding color. You can enhance this look with a bold door color, too! Stockmohr is proud to offer ProVia’s siding products, which include three hot new colors for the season: green, blue and gray. With a large variety of colors to choose from, finding the right siding and trim to fit your home’s ideal spring aesthetic is simple. ProVia’s siding products come with a Color-KeeperTM Anti-Fade Protection Guarantee to ensure a fade-free performance, a reassuring benefit when next winter hits. New siding -- no worries!

New Naturally-Glazed Entry Doors

Correlating the front door color with siding and trimming colors creates a custom home style. Entry door color and texture adds a creative, distinctive element to the entrance of your home. What’s new for entry doors in spring? Stockmohr now offers new naturally-glazed doors from ProVia; this hand-applied finish gives each door a unique look. The best part of about these products is that all ProVia entry doors have a layer of 2-part urethane, catalyst- hardened clear coat with UV protection. Each door is oven-cured twice, ensuring a long-lasting finish. What’s the point of refreshing your home’s look for spring if it’ll only last for the season? ProVia’s entry doors have multi-year warranties for their finishes, which covers flaking, checking, blistering or peeling. Not only will a naturally-glazed entry door add to your home’s new look for spring, it’ll contribute for years to come.

Get to Landscaping

Bringing color to a home’s exterior requires some yard work! Whether you enjoy time in the garden or not, there are a few simple ways to bring your yard back to life after winter. There’s typical yard maintenance homeowners take part in each year, like cleaning up branches, leaves and putting fertilizer and soil down; there are also creative ways that take your yard a step further without too much expertise. Much is an easy way to add color and texture to your yard. The best part about mulch is that it comes in red, black, gold, cedar -- whatever you want, really. If your yard is looking a little gray from winter, mulch is an easy way to add some brighter tones. If you want to take things to the next level, add some edging!
