Create a look and feel from the first moment someone stops in front of your home that says WELCOME! Here are a few quick updates for mass curb appeal that won’t break the bank.
Update the Front Door. You will not believe what a fresh coat of paint will do for your curb appeal. Popular now are red and teal. Don’t forget about the house numbers and a seasonal door hanger.
Maintain Landscaping. The easiest way to keep your home manicured and your neighbors happy is to keep a tidy yard. Keep your lawn mowed, bushes and trees trimmed, and flowerbeds freshly mulched. Annual flowers are usually inexpensive and can be changed depending on the season. If you like to do the job once, then invest in perennial flowers or plants that come back year after year.
Weed! Nothing looks worse than a nice yard with nothing but weeds in the landscaping. A quick pull of any weeds once a week will do wonders at keeping your beds looking in tip top shape. You can also ask about weed killers at your local home improvement store.
Get Rid of Dirt. Power-wash your walkways, patios/decks and siding on your house. Don’t forget about your windows. Sparkly windows improve the appeal of your home inside and out!
Hide those Trashcans. Garbage and recycling containers can be an eyesore. Store them inside your garage or on the side of the house.
Let there be Light Fixtures. Don’t like what fixtures came with the house or maybe they have faded. You can paint your fixtures or buy new ones at your local hardware store for a reasonable price. They can change the whole appearance of your home during the day and especially at night.
Spruce Up the Entrance. Have a lovely porch? Add pretty seating, colorful cushions, candles, drink trays and much more to invite people up for a breezy afternoon. Accessories can easily be changed each season freshening up the look as often as you like.
