Curb appeal matters.
You only get one chance to make a first impression and first impressions are everything. How our homes look can affect how we feel about it every time we come and go, how guests feel when they arrive, and ultimately, how successful a home sale can be when we ultimately decide to move. Here are some of the things you can do to make your home’s face memorable.
Here are 7 ways to dress up your home’s curb appeal.
Dress Up The Entrance
Your home's front entry is the focal point of its curb appeal. Make a statement by giving your front door a blast of color with paint or by installing a custom wood door. Clean off any dirty spots around the knob, and use metal polish on the door fixtures. Make sure to prune the shrubs while you are at it!
Light The Way
Your home's front entry is the focal point of its curb appeal. Make a statement by giving your front door a blast of color with paint or by installing a custom wood door. Clean off any dirty spots around the knob, and use metal polish on the door fixtures. Improved lighting also improves safety and security.
Container Gardens Add Instant Pop
These days flower pots come in an array of interesting shapes and sizes. Using several on the front porch or steps, filled with plants that flower, have textures and colored foliage can instantly add some pop.
Update Your Gardens
It may be time to replace some old, worn out plants with varieties that add energy into the garden. Variegated plants, blooming perennials and ornamental grasses can all make a tired landscape look refreshed.
Give your yard a little spunk and curb appeal by adding weather-resistant artwork. Choose pieces that complement your home's natural palette and exterior elements. Birdbaths, metal cutouts, sculptures, and wind chimes are good choices for outdoor art.
Lead The Way
A new walkway can sure make a home feel more welcome. Be sure to make it wide enough for two people to walk next to each other comfortable. Flagstone and pavers can really add some nice textures and colors. Check out 8 Front Walkway Ideas for Maximum Curb Appeal.
Don’t Just Mail It In
A new mailbox can bring your home’s architecture to the street side. Mailboxes should complement the home and express the homeowner's personality. When choosing a hanging drop box, pick a box that mirrors your home's trimmings. While you are at it, make sure the plantings around the mailbox are interesting too.
