Owning a home with a fresh and welcoming exterior is a wonderful thing to come home to each day. If you are looking to boost your home’s curb appeal without breaking the bank, consider these five simple tricks:
Update the front door. Replacing an outdated door can be just what your home needs. This simple change can go a long way in changing the appearance of your home. If your door doesn’t need to be replaced, adding a pop of color can make for a bright change.
Spruce up the landscaping. Landscaping is one of the first things people notice walking up to a house. Give your home a quick face lift by cleaning up your yard, mowing the lawn, trimming bushes, and keeping your steps clean
Freshen up the paint. New paint has the power to totally transform the look of your house in less time and for less cash than any other remodeling project. A new coat of paint will also protect your home from the sun, wind, and rain.
Shed light on your home. Make your home more inviting by adding some soft lighting outside. Highlight pathways and trees with landscape lighting. This not only improves safety, but also has a dramatic effect on your home’s nighttime appeal.
Keep up with maintenance. Nothing looks worse from the curb than crooked gutters, broken shutters, missing bricks from the front steps, or peeling paint. By simply refastening gutters, replacing bricks, and straightening your shutters can go a long way in boosting your home’s curb appeal.
These simple and affordable tips will help to give your home curb appeal that will set the standard for the entire neighborhood!
