Can we make our ranch-style house more charming and cottage-y?
May 31, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just bought our first home last year. I really love the cottage style, but not sure how to get there with stucco & brick. We just removed all of the overgrown landscape for a clean slate and exposed the nicely colored brick. We are planning a curved walkway up the center from the street to the door and maybe a white picket fence with arbor. I am not sure if shutters could work on just the left side (not enough room on right). Or if after-market grids would look good (windows are less than 10 yrs old). Overall, I just don't know how to make this rancher really charming on budget. We are planning to repaint and reroof within the next 12 months. Any tips would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!
