High-Impact Updates for Your Midcentury Facade

Focusing on exterior details can be key to an affordable remodel that allows the original design to shine through


Colin Flavin | Houzz Contributor


Avoid the temptation to overhaul a midcentury modern home’s entire facade when remodeling or adding on. Not only is doing this a daunting design challenge, but it can also be prohibitively expensive. Instead, remember what attracted you to the house in the first place, and let the original design shine through.


Look at the overall composition’s simplicity as an asset, and concentrate on focal points in the facade that will keep your eye interested. Home in on key aspects in the house design that can be updated to give the biggest bang for your buck. When concentrating on these “moments,” it’s OK that most of the house remains a neutral backdrop.
