Ways to Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal this Spring
Making your house look its best doesn’t have to cost a fortune and it doesn’t have to require a serious update. Here are our tips to boost your home’s first impressions without emptying your wallet.
Freshen up the front of your home with a new coat of paint for a new look. The great thing about paint is you can always change it if you get tired of it. It’s an inexpensive face-lift for your home’s exterior.
If your budget is only letting you update one thing at a time, we recommend painting or replacing your front door. Choose something that goes with your home’s exterior style. If you are replacing your front door, consider something that allows the most natural light into the interior of your home. You not only increase your home’s curb appeal, but you update the interior of your home as well.
Covered Front Entry
Stylish and functional, a covered front entry adds character to the front of your home. It protects you from the elements of the outdoors, and also creates a beautiful focal point for your guests when they arrive.
You don’t need to spend a fortune hardscaping your entire yard, but creating an interesting walkway to your front door can really enhance your home’s curb appeal. Choosing the right materials that works for your home’s exterior: slate, stone, stamped concrete, etc., can be a beautiful addition to the overall look.
One of the most effective ways to transform the front of your home is to landscape it properly. Adding plants, trees and flowers takes some planning, but a little can go a long way. If your budget allows for it, and you’re not sure where to start, hiring a landscape designer can be a good option.
