Hey there Remodelaholic readers! Dawn here, from AD Aesthetic, and I’m back this month with another reader question mockup to hopefully inspire some creative ideas for your outdoor space.

First though, my disclaimer: While I can recommend ideas that I think look nice, I have never seen this house in real life and don’t have accurate measurements.

READER QUESTION from Cathy — I was wondering if I could get suggestions for some curb appeal for the front of my house? My thoughts are window flower boxes and a new paint color for the front door. 

This split level style is a fairly common home layout, so I thought some ideas for Cathy might benefit other readers too. To begin, I searched the web for some inspiration:

Split Level Curb Appeal Ideas

To start with, I updated the door and shutter colors to give the house a little more contrast— always a good idea.

To further up the curb appeal, I added wooden window boxes, which gives the front of the house some detail and interest, while also repeating the natural color of the stone from the landscaping up a little higher.
