Curb Appeal is a home improvement show that focuses on the outdoor area of the home. People who are not pleased with their home's exterior apply to the show for a home makeover. Those who are selected have a designer come to their home and change the way their home looks. After being selected, the designer comes to the home to meet with the owners to learn more about what they don't like about the exterior of their home and yard and if there are elements they do like. The designer discusses colors, architectural features and landscaping ideas and themes with the owners. He then leaves to come up with a plan. The next time we see them, the designer has a drawing of all of the elements he'd like to use to increase the home's curb appeal. The owners look over the plans and discuss the changes that are to be made. Sometimes the homeowners are a little skeptical about the plans that the designer comes up with. After everyone is in agreement, even hesitantly, the designer and his crew will come to the house and make it over. They often construct outdoor furniture, add retaining walls, plants, patios, facades and many other items. Sometimes the owners are really excited to see the changes, and other times one or more of them will not agree with the plan. So instead of a regular home improvement show, this adds the element of tension with it being a bit of a reality show as well. The big reveal is at the end of the show, where viewers see how the home used to look and how it looks after all of the improvements have been made. There are often dramatic changes. The show also offers different tips to viewers on tasks that are being done that the viewer could then take and apply to their own home.
