There are so many simple, fast improvements that you can do to increase your home’s curb appeal. Adding visual improvements to your house not only makes it easier to sell, but it also gives your house that nice and finished look that you can take pride in.
Dress Up Doors
Your home’s front entry is the focal point of attraction; your home’s ambassador. Make a statement by giving your front door fresh paint or by installing a custom wood door. Clean off any dirty spots around the knob and use metal polish on the door fixtures. Your entry should also reflect the home’s interior, so choose a nice door decoration or wreath that reflects your personal style. A new garage door can take your home to the next level! New, modern designs can set your home apart from the others in the neighborhood and attract the eyes of potential buyers.
Spruce up your porch containers, window boxes, and flower beds with some colorful flowers for an instant lift. Never plant artificial flowers. You can buy ready-made collections from garden centers or create your own with your favorite plants. For most landscapes, a staggered, asymmetrical arrangement works best to create visual interest.
Improve Your Lighting
Solar walkway light fixtures are affordable and a cinch to install. You can place them where they highlight your home’s best attributes – trees, landscaping, walking paths, and any custom fixtures. These low-voltage accent light fixtures can make a huge visual impact on your home while also providing extra safety and security.
Add a Little Polish
Paint is only about $25 per gallon, and painting the front door, trim and shutters is a great way to greatly polish the look of your home in just a couple of hours. You can choose from lots of other inexpensive fix-ups, too: a new mailbox (research your city’s regulations to make sure you’re up to code first), a new porch bench and pillows, or a cheery new welcome mat all make a big impact with a small amount of work.
Grime and mold and algae that you probably don’t even notice are surely covering the outside of your home, so if you don’t want to paint, or commit the funds to a whole house refresh, rent or borrow a pressure washer. These powerful little cleaning tools will quickly remove dirt from siding and clean up driveways, walkways, patios, and decks so they look like new.
