I can't believe how good this transformation looks! The lighter painted brick paired with darker wood accents is a timeless style. Couple that with the modern path, waterfall entry stairs, and the modern landscaping and we're looking at the hottest modern tudor in the entire neighborhood!

The use of dark painted brick offset by the cedar siding and garage doors makes this home a show-stopper! Turning the cedar cladding around the corner directs the eye to the entry and the modern path helps you get there. I also love when the landscaping compliments the color and adds to the architecture of the home.

3. Craftsman Ranch - Modern Exterior Renovation

Wow, the before and after on this California ranch home is eye-popping! There's just something about dark trim and wood cladding. And the raised concrete planter beds add so much intrigue to this design— I can't get enough!

4. 80s Craftsman Conversion

This dated craftsman needed a little bit of love. Changing the color scheme, adding wood and stone elements in favor of the brick and swapping out the windows for a more modern counterpart completely changed this home. I also appreciate how the arched window was swapped out for some matching transoms to welcome this home into the 21st century.

What a complete transformation this design went through; from the new modern canopy with stone columns and cedar soffit to the paneled garage siding, this home has it all. I especially love the added modern box bay window.

I love the transformation on this two story modern home! The new windows adds welcoming transparency on the front elevation and the two-tone paint scheme adds much needed contrast with the original stone.

Sometimes simple changes lead to incredible transformations. I love how the black painted brick instantly adds a modern style. Paired with the right garage and entry doors and a new functional porch and grand entry modern stair and people will be driving slower as they pass this head-turner!
