Before-and-After Curb Appeal Makeovers
See how HGTV's all-star designers, architects, landscapers and contractors turn neighborhood eyesores into real showstoppers.
1.Before: Plain Jane
With overgrown landscaping and a disappear-into-the-background white paint color, this California bungalow was generally considered one of the least attractive homes on the block.
2.After: Colorful Cottage
To make the home pop, designer John Gidding chooses sunny yellow for the siding and cheery turquoise for the front door.
3.Before: Hidden Gem
Overgrown vegetation, ramshackle wood siding and a dangerous looking front porch combine to give this rambling Texas ranch a haunted house appearance.
4.After: Ranch-Style Standout
Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines worked their magic to give the formerly rundown ranch a massive curb appeal boost. Thanks to a bit of selective trimming, the front yard’s ancient tree is now an asset instead of an eyesore while the existing cedar siding was brought back to life with a good cleaning and sanding to reveal fresh wood before resealing.
5.Before: Faded Belle
The homeowners are two of the French Quarter's most colorful characters but their home's vanilla facade is definitely lacking. A tumble of weeds fill the beds that line the porch and the concrete set-back, or small area that separates the home from the sidewalk, is broken and unlevel.
6.After: Big Style in the Big Easy
Jason Cameron comes to this belle's rescue with kicky paint colors, a bluestone patio to replace the crumbling concrete and a cast-stone fountain.
7.Before: An Architectural Mismatch
Dubbed “the cargo ship house” by Fixer Upper’s Chip Gaines, this long, gray and bland exterior was certainly short on charm. The ranch-style brick portion was originally built in 1958 with the wood-clad second story tacked on as a later addition.
8.After: An Artful Addition
Wow, what a transformation! Chip and Joanna dramatically took this home from sad to stately with a porch bump-out that features post-and-beam construction, horizontal railing and a flagstone porch and stairs.
9.Before: Overgrown Adobe
The black sheep of the street, this small Spanish Colonial Revival-style home built in the 1920s, is a rarity in suburban Atlanta. It has the potential to be a real gem in the neighborhood but with a barren yard, overgrown arbor and faded stucco, it only stands out for its rundown appearance.
10.After: Spanish-Style Standout
The the Curb Appeal team start the makeover at the curb with this one, creating wide tile-accented steps that lead from the street to the new front porch that spans the entire length of the home's facade.
11.Before: Past Its Prime
Built in 1959, this midcentury modern rancher isn’t the typical candidate for a makeover in Fixer Upper Chip and Jo’s signature farmhouse style but the home’s location and size won over the homeowners.
12.After: Mid-Mod, Made-Over
A fresh coat of white paint brightens up the formerly muddy brick while cedar mullions update the home's signature midcentury modern architectural feature: the floor-to-ceiling corner window. A matching cedar front door and window boxes tie into the window’s new look.
13.Before: Hiding in Plain Sight
Evergreens are great for year-round color in your landscape but unless you plan to consistently keep them trimmed, they can grow too large to work as foundation plants.
14.After: Can't-Miss Yellow
Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri remove the overgrown evergreens, replacing them with oakleaf hydrangeas, hostas and bronze-leafed heuchera
15.Before: Well-Built but Bland
With all-brick construction, large windows and a circle drive, this home has great bones but its monochromatic color palette and uninspired landscaping could use a pick-me-up.
16.After: Timeless Transformation
Fixer Upper's Chip and Jo pulled off a big update for minimal effort with just a few swaps. They replaced the uninspired rows of boxwoods with decorative grasses
17.Before: Haunted House?
The owners of this century-old San Francisco home are parents to five kids, including two sets of twins, so yardwork and home maintenance has taken a back seat to raising their family.
18.After: High-Style Victorian
John learned that the home had been white since its construction (120+ years ago!) so in keeping with true Victorian style, he chose no less than seven paint colors to really make this painted lady the neighborhood showstopper.
