The porch’s painted blue ceiling is a welcome change from its expected white.

Paint Porch Ceiling and Floor

Have you ever looked up at someone’s front-porch ceiling or down at the floor while waiting for them to answer the door?

Rest assured, your guests do the same thing — especially if it’s a long wait!

This porch’s ceiling was overdue for some paint, so we gave it a fresh coat of Behr Snowmelt in Flat sheen.

And we pressure washed the porch floor before using Behr Solid concrete stain in Pacific Fog.

Add Faux Vent

This vent’s pretty, but non-functioning.

Here’s an insider’s secret: some of those vents you see on homes? They’re purely decorative!

That will also be true for this home, which will gain architectural detail just from installing a faux vent.

We cut out the vent’s shape in the siding before securing it with construction adhesive and caulk.

Paint Front Door

Front doors are often white or brown, so we’re painting this door to give it character.

One of our favorite things to do when adding curb appeal is one of the simplest: paint the front door!

For this home, we transformed a predictable white entry with Behr Eucalyptus Wreath in Semi-gloss.
