It is often said that your home’s exterior gives a preview of what you will find inside much like the cover of a book. With summer around the corner, homeowners are spending less of their time indoors and are looking for ways to make the most of their time outdoors. Whether you are planning to sell your home or you just want to make some improvements to your home, focusing on boosting your home’s curb appeal is a great way to maximize your productivity while enjoying the beautiful weather. This month we will discuss three easy ways to add curb appeal to your home.
Front Door Décor
Outdoor decorations are not just for holidays. A beautiful wreath or a colorful welcome rug can add some interest and beauty to an otherwise plain entrance. The key is to focus on choosing colors and elements that can be used all year rather than just seasonally.
Power Wash It Off
There is nothing quite like power washing months and maybe even years of dirt and grime off your porch, siding or driveway. If you do not own a power washer, most hardware stores allow you to rent them for a fee.
One of the most obvious and impactful ways to boost curb appeal is to update your landscaping. While this can be a pricey upgrade if you completely overhaul your landscaping, making the most of a few changes can still make all the difference. Focus on using plants to accentuate visual points like windows and doorways. Even just one key point of interest can drastically improve your home’s appearance.
