The curb appeal of your home is very important and it can make or break what people think of your home. Whether you are staying there for the long haul or about to place your home on the market, curb appeal is important. Here are a few steps to helping you make the most of what your home has to offer:
Step 1: Fresh Paint Does Wonders for Curb Appeal
Putting a fresh coat of paint on your home can work wonders. If the paint is faded or peeling, it shows from the street. Get a fresh color and change things up a bit, such as painting the color you had before. This will freshen things up and make a world of difference on the overall curb appeal of your home.
Step 2: Clean Up Landscaping
The landscaping in front of your home is like the finishing touch. If there are weeds growing everywhere, clean them up. Add some new mulch around trees or rocks around the bushes in the front. Plant some new flowers to add a pop of color and bring it all together.
Step 3: Concentrate On the Door
Your front door is the first thing people see as they approach your home. Paint the door a vibrant color to make it pop. You could also consider a new, decorative door with a window in it. If you like a solid door, hang a wreath on it or something else decorative to make it look welcoming.
Step 4: Add Lighting
During the day, your home probably has plenty of natural lighting. But if you want your curb appeal to carry over into the evening hours, it’s best to add some lighting to the home in the right places. Not only will this enhance appearance, but it will also give you extra security measures.
Step 5: Spruce Up The Mailbox
Mailboxes serve a purpose, but that doesn’t mean they have to be boring. Get a mailbox that matches your home’s color and style to help it stand out while blending in at the same time. The right mailbox can add that much more curb appeal.
