5 Ways To Increase Your Home's Curb Appeal With Brass And Copper Accents

Adding brass and copper accents is one sure fire way to dramatically increase the curb appeal of your home. The classic look of brass and copper pairs well with traditional and colonial style homes but can work with more modern designs. Because they will never rust or corrode, brass and copper accents are ideal for out door use and will generally last for decades. Here are a few of our favorite brass and copper accents to consider adding to your home.

The last item on our list is one of our own, the Hampton Post Lantern. Classic copper and brass outdoor lighting will boost the curb appeal of your home while adding safety and security. When the exterior of your home is well lit, the chance of your property being burglarized dramatically decreases. Crime Prevention Specialist Deputy Travis Pendell of the Spokane County Sheriff's Office says constant lighting around your property is essential in keeping would-be thieves away.  He recommends ‘the headline test' to determine if your outdoor area is lit well enough. Carry a newspaper around your property at night - if you can't read the headline, that area of your property is too dark. Take a look at the Hampton Post Lantern here
