Just like a book with a beautiful cover, the curb appeal of your home goes a long way in giving either good and bad first impression of your home to visitors and potential buyers.
If the mere thought of your home’s curb appeal gives you an unpleasant feeling, this might be the right time to implement some effective and affordable curb improvement projects. Enhancing the curb appeal of your home isn’t as expensive as most homeowners think.
Listed below are 5 ways you can improve the curb appeal of your home to make it look nicer and boost its value:
1. MAKE YOUR WINDOWS AND DOOR POP
Making your front windows and doors stand out instead of blend in is a great way to increase curb appeal in your home and you can achieve this even on a budget. It is an easy DIY project that will cost you only a few dollars. When you want to do this, always go for bold color that accentuates the exterior features of your home. If your front door or windows are damaged, then you should get replacement windows and doors instead of painting.
2. LET THERE BE LIGHT
Lighting is a very important features of any home. To make your home visually appealing, your lighting has to be top-notch. Starting from your entryway, you should have exciting lighting that sets the mood for what’s inside. Constantly cleaning your light fixtures inside and outside your home should be made a tradition. This will make your space appear brighter, cleaner, and larger to guests and potential buyers.
3. CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS
This may sound somewhat strange in regards making your home more visually appealing but it definitely works. Cleaning gutters both inside and outside your home to rid debris and foster free-flow of wastewater will not only enhance the curb appeal of your home but make your home safer, smell better, and more welcoming to guests.
4. GO GREEN
One of the most effective ways homeowners have adapted over the years to boost curb appeal in their homes is by going green. Adding some fresh greenery and beautiful ornamental flowers will give your home a beautiful appeal. If you don’t have the resources or time to grow a garden in your home, adding nice planters and windows boxes will give your home the same effect as a garden. To get the best result, use the plants to frame and accentuate important features like our windows and doors.
5. STAIN YOUR GARAGE DOOR
Completely replacing your garage door might not be the best option if you’re working on a budget. New garage doors are quite expensive but you can get the same curb appeal a new garage provide by staining your existing one with a new color. To get this done, first power wash your garage door. This will remove all dirt and debris on the surface of the door, after which you can proceed to paint your new stain.
