There’s only one chance to make a great first impression. And the same is true for your home. Whether you’re looking to sell or happy to stay, sprucing up the outside of your house is a great way to attract guests and a wonderful thing to come home to each day. Increase your home’s curb appeal with these simple ideas:
Paint the Front Door
Convey a warm welcome by making your front door pop. A burst of bold color can attract the eye and add an instant cheery touch.
Light It Up
Swap out your old lighting and replace it with a more up-to-date fixture. Lighting doubles as both a safety feature for your home and a good way to spotlight all of your beautiful, new upgrades.
Keep It Clean
Power washing your home and porch are quick and effective ways to give your house a makeover. Keeping things free of dirt and dust will make your facade look as good as new. If you’re looking to sell, realtors say that washing the exterior can add $10-15k to the sale of your home.
Glam Up Your Mailbox
Fixing bold number or address plaques to your mailbox is a simple way to add some interest. If you’re choosing a new mailbox altogether, make sure to pick one that compliments the style of your home and expresses your personality.
One of the best ways to add curb appeal to your home is by maintaining a landscaped front yard. Grass should always be kept neat and cut and your hedges should remain trimmed and not overgrown. Plant flowers to add some color and make your house look HGTV-worthy!
